Malignant melanoma is one of the fastest growing cancers in the world, and sun exposure is the cause of almost all of these cancers. However, exposure to small amounts of sunlight is also essential to good health. A balance is required between avoiding an increase in the risk of skin cancer by excessive sun exposure and achieving enough exposure to maintain adequate vitamin D levels.
SunCheck helps you find this balance. The app evaluates your skin using your phone’s camera and flash and advanced image analysis. It warns you when the sun is strong or when you are at risk of getting sunburnt.
Get feedback with each measurement, based on the weather, the local UV index, and your skin condition. These features help you to be out in the sun without risking your health.
Share your measurement results on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and make your friends aware of the importance of responsible tanning.
With SunCheck Pro, the whole family can enjoy responsible tanning! You can define the skin type for multiple users, and each user gets personalized advice based on weather, UV index and the current condition of his or her skin.
Ever wonder how much your skin really tans? Or whether you are recovering from sunburn? Get SunCheck Pro, and you can easily follow your skin condition from day to day. Each measurement is stored and beautiful graphics give you insight in how your skin has changed over time.
Complete redesign and new user interface!
Now support for iPhone Xr, Xs and Xs Max.

Great idea, but can’t take measurements
The idea is great, it just doesn’t function properly. I can’t get it to take a measurement for the life of me! I’ve tried over and over, it just says “too fast” or “too slow”. I’m on the iPhone 11 Pro Max, no idea if that makes a difference or not? Either way they shouldn’t be charging for an app that clearly doesn’t work, or isn’t compatible with this phone.
I’ll be going through Apple to get a refund since the app doesn’t function like it’s supposed to. It’s not like it provides any other useful info that can’t be found in other free apps like UV index and exposure times.
Maybe the devs will update so it will work with the 11 pro max, I’ll reconsider it at that point.
Numbers don’t line up
I always get 100/100 for my tan, and I haven’t been in the sun at all in months. Caucasian skin, definitely no tan. Hopefully they can fix this and I can update my review, but until then :(
Tremendously useful and helpful
Really appreciate this app!
