Check local UV levels to keep your skin safe. (Apple iTunes Store)

If you've had five or more sunburns at any age, your risk of melanoma is twice as high! It's so important to protect yourself from the sun's harmful radiation. This app can help now that summer's officially here.

It's called UV Detector, and it shows the UV index for your location, as well as a weekly forecast. You can set it to alert you when you should wear sunscreen or post sun updates on Facebook and Twitter.
