Superb update and invaluable app!

Update for v1.3:

What a great update! Very reliable syncing with the watch now. It's now replaced my previous UV app in my watch dock. The update has a ton of useful info and thank you for adding Fahrenheit! I upgraded to Pro and don't regret it. Would love to see the complication come back and it's a five-star app! As a pale person that loves the sun, this is invaluable. Keep up the great work!

The aesthetics are good, the information is delivered well, like the option to add skin type. However, it doesn't update on my watch. Just says "open main app" and when I open the phone app, it does nothing. Also the nothing shows up at all on the small complication at all. S2, on 3.2.2. Would also like the option for Fahrenheit. I would upgrade to pro with those fixes.

Developer Response ,

Hi Mercurial, thanks for your honest feedback. You could tap on the temp units to change it to Fahrenheit. We're constantly working to improve the app and planning to add Apple Watch complications in the future versions. Alex. Western Australia.

Best UV index App in the App Store

This is the app I was looking for. I downloaded every iOS UV index app. I hated all of them. And then I found this one. I’ve used it for a week now. And I’m pleased. It’s a very simple yet highly functional, informative app. I like how it displays the UV index in decimals. My local UV index source rounds up or down. And speaking of my local IV index source, I’ve been comparing this apps UV rating with several other websites. It is very accurate. And I trust it. I really just got involved in skincare. And sunscreen. And the sun is something I now take very seriously. I have no complaints. I do look forward to perhaps an update in the near future perfecting the app or adding new features. But at the moment I can’t really think of anything to suggest. Thank you!

Problem updating location

I like the comprehensive information provided by this app; especially the function that takes cloud cover into account. I give it two stars because the app hangs up on my first location of the day and I have to delete and re-install the app in order for it to change locations. I had an IPhone 7 until this week when I upgraded to an iPhone 10. I experienced this problem with both versions of the IPhone. I would like to give this app a better review; I hope that this issue is addressed soon.
