Only 28% of people comply with the Skin Cancer Foundation's recommendation to reapply sunscreen every two hours according to its 2008 study - this worried the fine folks at Coppertone so they did what every responsible company now does, created an app:
Coppertone MyUV Alert Application Function Descriptions:
Custom UV Index (embedded GPS) – By entering your zip code, you will be able to get daily UV Index advisories informing you on how strong the UV rays are in your region. Armed with your UV Index number, you can take the proper precautions to protect yourself and your family wherever your travels may take you.
Personalized Suncare Profile – Everyone has different skincare needs, and with this personalized function, you will be able to choose the suncare protection that is right for you and your family. Once the profile is established, you can click the recommend button at any time to see the best suncare options to use based on your planned activity for the day.
Suncare Reminders – Sunscreen needs to be reapplied periodically throughout the day to remain effective and now Coppertone’s Suncare Reminders are here to make your life a little bit easier. Customizing by what activities you will be participating in during the day, suncare alerts will remind you to reapply. It’s an easy way for you and your family to stay safe while enjoying the day in the sun!
How frequently are you disappointed to find a photo with someone special or celebratiing an event ruined with red eye, dull colour or skin flaws?
This situation can now be fixed with a free app on your iPhone or iPad—or the correlating free website. PicTreat is a photo retouching application that allows people to upload their photos and improve the image before sharing it with the world online. And if you get Christelle in your picture by accident, you can use the paper bag option to get rid of her face entirely (I checked for a plastic bag option, but there isn't one).
Non iPhone users can go to PicTreat.com and do it the old fashioned way!
