Don't believe the poor ratings. It is very informative and helpful. There's only one big request to make it perfect for me and alot more people although you can select your exact location there's only 3 conditions to choose from (beach, on the sea, or mountains) but I'm in the plains so I'm a thousand miles from the ocean and the mountains. So it would be great if there was a plains option since the further distance from the sun effects the timer. Thanks for making the great app!
Helpful, but needs work
This app can be helpful and informative, it's true. But the timer should continue to work in the background. Until it does, the timer in this app is useless. It should also be able to pull temperature and humidity information, as well as UV, and it would be nice to have more than three options each for location and conditions.
This app is a wonderful idea but is useless where I live in SW Utah. If I stayed in the sun for anything close to the suggested time limit I would be fried to a crisp and I'm using SPF 50 for my computation. I'm wondering if a temperature setting would help?
