India is a tropical country, where the climate is hot and humid. Of recent, the intense heat during summer will drive you up the wall. What we overlook at such times, is the risk of skin cancer. Sure, the problem is not as big as it is in Oz, but cancer is cancer, and is best avoided. Besides, the way pollution is on the rise, it might not be too long till we end up having holes in our ozone layer leading to holes in our melanin.
At such times, SunSmart can be a very helpful app for your iPhone. Currently, only available in Australia, the app tells you about the weather forecast. SunSmart is no ordinary weather app though, it helps in telling you about the UV levels (the actual cause of cancer) by using GPS. Temperature and sun protection times are also included, so users can be aware of the safest time to leave the house.
Yeah it’s only for Australia, but we all know how much we need an app of this sort in India as well. What other apps do you think can work for us, as in India-centric apps? Let us know in the comments section below. By the way, if you want a look at the app, you can check it out at the iTunes store .
