Get out of the sun app

Get out of the sun app

The i-phone app Sun Alert Lite calculates how long tan-lovers can stay in the sun. Users type in their skin type, the SPF of applied sun cream and the actual weather conditions. The app buzzes a warning when it is time to go back into the shade.

Why it matters

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (USA), skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. Taking this into account, such reminder apps may help prevent serious health troubles. Will personal health management apps revolutionize the health system –putting the control back in consumers hands?
