About this app

Did you know it’s the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation – not heat – that causes skin cancer, as well as sunburn, tanning, premature ageing and eye damage?

Unlike the sun’s heat and light, we can’t see or feel UV rays. That means we usually don’t know when our skin is being damaged until it’s too late.

So how do you know when you need to protect your skin?

The free SunSmart app makes it simple, by providing you with sun protection times each day using forecast information from the Bureau of Meteorology and live UV data from Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency.

Check the app each day – or set a handy alert – and slip, slop, slap, seek and slide to reduce your risk of skin cancer.

*SunSmart is a free app developed by Cancer Council Victoria, a not-for-profit organisation. App data is limited to Australia.

The latest update is a huge mess. It's removed the widget, which I've used daily for years. It now repeatedly fails to pick up my location, saying that it can't contact the location services, I've tried rebooting and disabling/enabling permissions to the location services to no avail. Manual selection now has only got about 2 suburbs for all of Perth, and lastly, just opening a location and switching between a few locations a few times makes the UV rating go up and down... so broken!

It's great to know the UV levels for each day, but I just have to hope they're more accurate than the weather forecasts, which frequently differ significantly from other forecasts and sometimes detail two of the same day. Disappointing.

This app is great and would get 5 stars, except for the "Please wait - loading UV information" notice that's constantly plastered across the screen, blocking out the actual information! This has been happening for a long time. Please fix and I'll change my rating! (Sony Xperia z5)
