        GeigerMap 1.0 for iOS – Radiation Readings from 7,500 Cities Worldwide

          Power App today introduced GeigerMap 1.0 for iOS, their new Health & Fitness app that provides updated radiation readings from more than 7,500 official and private measuring stations worldwide. GeigerMap consists of a searchable, global Google Map that displays crowd-sourced Geiger counter readings. Each colored pushpin can be tapped to read the name of the town or city and its current radiation level. The map offers an instant visualization of radiation levels, with green pins symbolizing a reading of 180 CPM (Counts Per Minute) or less (normal), violet pins 180 - 600 CPM (high), and red pins 600 CPM or more (dangerous).

          With accidents at nuclear power facilities in the news, citizens of many countries have been concerned for their safety. Owning an inexpensive Geiger counter is not a practical solution, since these devices are too inaccurate to be useful. The CPM readings from a reliable Geiger counter measure a broad range of radiation including alpha, beta, gamma, and mixed particles. When measured over time, CPM readings are quite useful in determining abnormally high levels of radioactive decay. At present, there are no new violet pins displayed anywhere, except in a small radius fast bad credit payday loans surrounding the damaged nuclear power facility in Japan. And no red pins are displayed anywhere.

          The primary value of GeigerMap is to assure ordinary people that worldwide radiation levels are not dangerously high, even following accidents at electrical power plants that rely on fissionable, nuclear material for boiling water that will power turbine generators. Although radiation levels may be lethal on-site, locations more than 25 miles away generally remain unaffected. Because the app employs such a large sampling, it is easily possible to dismiss anomalous readings that may be reported in isolated locales.

          Feature Highlights:
          * Monitor global radiation levels on your iOS device
          * Geiger counter readings are updated several times each day
          * Obtain the exact numerical reading for towns and cities worldwide
          * Error minimization by comparing monitoring stations in the near vicinity
          * At 200 CPM the risk of cancer starts to increase
          * Direct links to many more free and paid apps from Power APP GmbH

          Device Requirements:
          * iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
          * iOS 3.2 or later (iOS 4.3 tested)
          * 3.8 MB

          Pricing and Availability:
          GeigerMap 1.0 is available for $4.99 (USD) worldwide through the App Store in the Healthcare & Fitness Category.
