Why people love Oko.
I have just recently over the past two weeks started using oko, and I can honestly say this is a game changing app. it’s almost like having an audible pedestrian signal right in your hand. Plus, it is super simple to use.

”In 2011 I was walking in Orlando and was hit by an SUV, which resulted in a herniated disc. This still effects me everyday. Since that day I was always paranoid crossing the streets. Thanks to Oko I gained a much higher confidence level that I haven’t felt in years.

This is an absolute game changer for our safety”
