Pocket Alert™ 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 body, but there is little else to help consumers know how to help protect themselves from cell phone radiation and its potential harmful effects on health, especially cell phone risks for young people. Green Swan, Inc. introduces a new product in its line of family safety software – Pocket Alert™ for Android.
Pocket Alert™ helps protect the user from cell phone radiation by issuing a gentle vibratory alert reminding you to either turn “off” or remove your phone from your pocket. The “Always On” feature ensures that Pocket Alert™ will be constantly monitoring proximity at all times in support of the health and safety of you and your loved ones.
Pocket Alert™ takes advantage of spatial proximity data with a proprietary system designed to issue an alert any time your cellular phone remains near the body for an unsafe period of time. The alerts are conveniently suppressed when the phone is not in close proximity only deploying when the phone has been placed in the pocket in the “on” condition thereby encouraging safer cell phone use and compliance with FCC safety guidelines. Pocket Alert™ is a convenient and simple software solution to help with radiation protection.
Pocket Alert™ 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, Pocket Alert™ is initially available only on Android OS 2.1 or higher.
