Reviews

Reviewer: Cancer Council Australia
Review: "Set up a sun-protection alert and receive daily reminders of the times of day sun protection is required. Select to receive the alert at the time of your choice, or at the exact time the UV is forecast to reach a level that can damage your skin and eyes. Use the sunscreen calculator to find out how much sunscreen you need to apply, taking account of your size and clothing. 7-day weather forecast: check the weather for the week ahead. Vitamin-D tracker: find out if you are getting enough UV exposure for vitamin D."

Review:
"Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes wrinkles and skin and eye damage, ultimately leading to skin cancer. Protect the skin you're in with the SunSmart app for iPhone and Androids. The SunSmart app lets you know when you do and don't need sun protection, making it easier than ever to be smart about your sun exposure all."

Review:

"The SunSmart UV Alert is a tool you can use to protect yourself from UV radiation. It tells you the time during the day that you need to be SunSmart. The Alert is issued by the Bureau of Meteorology when the UV index is forecast to reach 3 or above. At that level, it can damage your skin and lead to skin cancer. For smartphone users, a free SunSmart app is a great way to check the UV Alert when out and about."
