UV app has been created by the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) in collaboration with the Met Office.
The app provides the public with a free daily UV forecast for over 10,000 locations worldwide that can be accessed at the touch of your finger-tips. The UV forecast identifies the peak strength of the ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun at a particular place on a particular day. UV rays can cause damage to the skin and can cause sunburn - which may lead to skin cancer.
