WHAT IS TIMON?

Timon is an app for Android and iOS phones. It allows you to engage in live, on-demand Whatsapp-style voice and text chats with real people whenever you want to ask a question or discuss a topic. You can chat for as long as you want. Each guru will have a rate (they set themselves) earned every 3 minutes of voice chat and every 6 minutes of text chat.

CAN ANYONE BECOME A GURU?
