It seems the sun won’t let up this summer, with many parts of the United States experiencing record-level temperatures. With the excessive heat comes the danger of overexposure to the sun, but it’s often hard to know you’re at risk until it’s too late. The newly released Wolfram Sun Exposure Reference App for iOS can aid in calculating just how much sun is too much and can offer recommendations on which SPF level to apply.
If you are planning on spending any prolonged time out in the sun this summer, the Wolfram Sun Exposure Reference App is a great tool to have at your fingertips. By detecting your current location, the app provides personalized recommendations for SPF levels and shows you how long you can stay in the sun before you’re likely to burn.
The Wolfram Sun Exposure Reference App can also calculate the UV forecast based on your location or provide information on the UV levels for a five-day period.
The Wolfram Sun Exposure Reference App can be found on the iTunes App Store for $0.99. This is just one of many Wolfram|Alpha-powered mobile apps. More information about our other apps can be found here.
