Great App for Active People


I'm a sophmore in college and whenever i go surfing or go to practice for the soccer team i can stay out longer by just glancing quick at the app. Unlike the free apps, this app helps you more effeciently measure the suns uv strength, real helpful an gotten alot of use out of this app already.

Love this app


I'm a mom to two and worry when my kids are in the sun. This app is great as it tells me how long the kids can be in the sun and what SPF they need to avoid burning. That's one less thing for me to worry about and the kids loved taking the simple skin type quiz.

Love Sun Shield!!!


This is a great app to use for someone who is fair skinned like me. I use it when I am in the sun to help me pick the right sun protection and let me know how long I can stay in the sun. Other great feature is the UV safe hours during the day. I highly recommend this app!
