The best iPhone apps for UV monitoring-2021

In a nutshell, this app can be described as a sunburn calculator. It will tell you how long you have to go sunbathing before getting the nasty sunburn. It uses the computational power of Wolfram-Alpha knowledge engine to accurately make a UV forecast and to calculate the sunburn factor.

The app automatically detects your current location and pulls UV forecast data from Wolfram supercomputers. You have to provide additional information such as your skin type, date, time, and the SPF you’re going to use. Then, tap the calculate button and it will show you a range of data including ‘time to burn’ and sun protection advisory.

To view a graphical reference of UV forecasts, just open the UV index map. This index looks like a typical weather map used on TV newscasts. It shows the specific areas on the map where there are high levels of UV radiation.
