Better looking skin starts with healthy skin habits.
Our surroundings are filled with environmental aggressors that can affect your skin: UV, pollution, pollen, heat and humidity. My Skin Track UV and its companion app allows you to see, in real time, your personalized UV exposure, while also measuring pollution, pollen, and humidity based on your location.
The app also provides personalized tips and skincare recommendations that can help improve your healthy skin habits. The UV Index info from this app can also be integrated into the Health App to see the location-based UV Index wherever you are.
Also available through the app: My Skin Track PoreScan, a skin analysis powered by artificial intelligence and developed with dermatologists to help those with clogged pores, raised imperfections, and residual marks achieve their skin goals and keep track of progress over time.

Ratings and Reviews
Not accurate. Shoots up to beyond max UV + stays there even after I get inside in the dark. I wish this would show spikes when I am exposed and then not.... instead, the app just goes up to 137% at 2 p.m. unless I stay in the dark all day, then it shows zero. I avoid the sun, but like today I was outside at 2 p.m. talking to a contractor for about 40 minutes. Then I came inside for 6 more hours... why doesn’t the trend graph show a drop after I come inside? I am not sitting in front of a window. Update this app to accurately reflect the ups and downs in exposure.
Largely useless now
Back when I first got the sensor (apparently no longer available in stores) it actually worked pretty well. The app was straight forward, did what it was supposed do, and provided useful daily exposure readings.
Then with each app update, it got progressively worse until the $70 sensor ended up unused on my desk.
I found the sensor a couple of months ago, re-downloaded the app and tried again.
It was (unbelievably) even worse than before. The app was constantly telling me to scan the sensor at all hours of the day & night or trying to sell me something or collecting information for the company mailing list.
When (often not) I could get it to scan, it said either I’d gotten zero exposure even though I’d been outside in bright sun for hours or that I’d gotten 100, 200, or 300 percent of exposure.
I could buy those exposure levels IF they had any correlation to how long I’d been outside and the UV levels reported by the app.
I just trashed the app and the sensor. Both were far more frustrating to use than any benefit they provided.
Bottom line, set a timer using Siri to remind you to reapply sunscreen or go inside.
Ultimately that is more efficient and effective than relying on this app and it’s associated sensor. Setting a timer will also save you enough to buy a lot of sunscreen.
App with a hardware issue
This app doesn’t work without the sensor, a $60 piece of hardware that tracks your UV.
There are a few issues with the app, but the most important thing is a serious design flaw in the sensor clip. You are supposed to clip this to your clothes. Unfortunately the clip is not tight as all. It sticks well to a sweater or coat, but not to a dress shirt or t shirt or other thing piece of clothing. The first 3 days I wore it on my shades-this worked fine. The next day I decided to put it on my shirt, as my shades go on and off. Within 3 hours I had lost the sensor.... judging by other reviews, I am not the only one. $60 gone... not replacing it!
In any case, I think the app needs some improvement. Too many reminders every time I open the app. And it should be easy to add reminders to reapply sunscreen or to add a function that calculates you daily sun allowance if you wear a certain SPF.
