When terminally ill Brittany Maynard ended her own life Saturday, she was diagnosed with Glioma – a malignant, cancerous brain tumor – an incurable and painful disease.
And it’s commonly believed that Gliomas are correlated to the electromagnetic radiation from mobile / cell phones while excessive use of mobile phone can cause cancer in the brain.
Findings also suggest that mobile phone users suffer from many other ailments such as tinnitus, anxiety, stress, and depression.
The mobile marketers, however, challenge such findings because they want to sell their mobile devices and services, ignoring all health hazards of mobile phones to consumers.
Meanwhile, other tech companies are offering their solutions to deal with the growing mobile phone addiction disorder.
For example, Rinasoft offers its smartphone addiction prevention app ‘UBhind — Mobile Pattern Life’ which checks and analyzes the amount of smartphone use per day and which applications are used most often.
In addition to various analysis data that help users identify the patterns of their smartphone usage, this app provides features to measure how many times the smartphone screen is turned on, set a target time of use, and issue an alarm when the set time is reached. These are all designed to help prevent smartphone addiction.
According to the company, this app, with its convenient control and systematic design, helps users check their data easily. The app, which is currently available only for Android, can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store.
Rinasoft is currently servicing the app in nine languages, English, Chinese, Japanese, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian and Korean.
“Based on the favorable responses from countries where the product was released, we added a DST (daylight saving time) function recently. In addition, we plan to add a function to compare individual users’ smartphone utilization patterns against those of all UBhind users,” says Rinasoft CEO Sung-Kwan Kim.
Specializing in mobile applications and solutions, RinasoftGlobal develops and operates applications for various fields, such as education, entertainment, utility and SNS, using both iOS and Android-based technologies.
