The free official Safecast app for iOS functions as a virtual geiger counter, allowing you to see your location on a map while displaying radiation readings that have been taken nearby. The free Safecast Drive (iOS) and Safecast:Drive (Android) apps allow users to upload data from a bGeigie using their smartphones.
