Alara provides an hourly forecast of the UV radiation from the sun for your current location and gives recommendations on how to protect yourself so you can plan your day accordingly.
Some exposure to the sun is enjoyable. But too much can be dangerous, causing sunburns and long-term problems such as skin cancer and cataracts. Ozone depletion, as well as seasonal and weather variations, cause different amounts of UV radiation at any given time.
Overexposure to UV radiation from the sun is the most preventable cause of skin cancer.
Enjoy the Sun, safely.

Ratings and Reviews
Just today's UV info-simple & clear
Well designed and pick we are app for today's UV forecast. My only wish is for just a little future info as well.
Doesn't always work
Often will display 0 for the entire day.
Does not work
It is noon on the third day of summer. I live in a beach town called Santa Cruz in California and it says that today ( all day) has a uv index of ZERO. Every website I have looked at says we have a UV index of 9 until 5:00 today. Uninstalling this piece of garbage now.
