Solarscreen is a life saving app.
I downloaded it and and am now using it.
The app screen dashboard displays an ultraviolet (UV) Index that is very easy to view and use.
Based on the UV exposure, it shows a number system from 1,2 (green) to 11+ (danger) for how much sun block you need to apply, and how often, to avoid skin cancer.
I have had skin cancer in my family and sent the app to my family and friends. I also sent it to Dr. Eric Finzi MD, PhD, a life long friend who is a dermatological surgeon and artist. Most of his surgeries are due to patients with skin cancer and this app should be of great use to his patients.
As you can see, my wife and my two sons are redheads. I've had pre-skin cancer growths burned off my face. I'm looking forward to using this app to prevent any more skin cancer for me or my family.
Here is an article in the Montana Kaiman about it entitled "Don't want to get skin cancer? There's an app for that!
It happens to the best of us: coming home from a cloudy day at the beach with cringe-inducing sunburn. While clouds protect the earth from some UV rays, many rays still make it through to burn and damage human skin.
