Too Close Parental™ for Android OS
There is much debate in the mobile phone industry about the dangers of radio frequencies and EMF radiation on human health. Mobile phone manufacturers are required to publish cell phone safety guidelines warning users to keep phones at a safer distance from the head and body, but there is little else to guide consumers on how to help protect themselves from cell phone radiation and its potential harmful effects on health, especially cell phone risks for children. Green Swan, Inc. introduces a new product in its line of family safety software – Too Close Parental™ for Android.
Too Close Parental™ helps Save Your Brain from cell phone radiation by issuing a gentle alert reminding you to move your phone to a safer distance away from the head. You can customize Too Close Parental ™ to give reminders at different intervals and you can select from several alert types according to your preference. Parental control features allow parents and guardians to enable the password protection feature which ensures that the application cannot be easily disabled without their knowledge. The “Always On” feature ensures that Too Close Parental™ will be constantly monitoring proximity at all times in support of the health and safety of you and your loved ones.
Too Close Parental™ takes advantage of spatial proximity data with a proprietary system designed to issue an alert any time your cellular phone remains near the head for an unsafe period of time. At set intervals, alert reminders encourage you to use your speakerphone or a headset instead of risking phone radiation by pressing the phone dangerously against your head or body. The alerts are conveniently suppressed while in headset or speakerphone mode, thereby encouraging safer cell phone use and compliance with FCC safety guidelines. Too Close Parental™ is a convenient and simple software solution to help with radiation protection. No additional hardware is required.
Too Close Parental™ helps mobile phone users ensure compliance with FCC and CTIA mandated usage guidelines by alerting the user when the cellular telephone is operating inside the minimum recommended spatial distance for use. Although we would like to release an iOS version of our application, Too Close Parental™ is initially available only on Android OS 2.1 or higher.
