UV Canada and UV US iPhone and Android Apps

UV Canada and UV US are free apps for the residents of Canada and the United States, which help users to receive daily notifications about the latest status of Ultra-Violet (UV) radiation and weather based on users’ location of choice. Users can also receive weather forecasts and tips on how to reduce the negative effects of prolonged UV exposure. The UV index and weather data are kindly contributed by U.S National Weather Service and Environment Canada. The applications are offered as part of the efforts of BC Cancer Agency and Skin Research Training Center to raise awareness in dealing with Ultra-Violet hazards and to prevent skin cancer. The UV Canada app won the award of Population Health and Health Sciences at the BC Cancer Agency Annual Cancer Conference 2011. Enjoy the sun safely!
