The Wolfram Sun Exposure Reference App is your ultimate beach essential this summer and all year! It calculates how long your skin can be exposed to the Sun without burning based on your skin type, location, time, and the level of Sun protection factor (SPF) you might be using. You can also compute a UV forecast for your location, along with a sun protection advisory. Bonus features include sunrise and sunset time, current Sun position, and weather forecast. The personalized results show you: - How long you can stay in the Sun before you’re likely to burn based on the factors you reported - Results automatically computed for your current location along with an option to enter any location, worldwide - A Sun protection advisory recommending an SPF level - A UV forecast for your location - Information on the UV levels for a five-day period that includes the past 24 hours - A UV index forecast map that you can manipulate by date and time The Wolfram Sun Exposure Reference App is powered by the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine and is created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world's leading software system for mathematical research and education. The Wolfram Sun Exposure Reference App draws on the computational power of Wolfram|Alpha's supercomputers over a 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.



  • Great app. Could be better!

    By your pal Al
    The info provided by the app is priceless. The app would be truly great if it could remember the info I have to re-input every time u use it...
  • Doesn't work today :(

    By Sunburnaphobe
    I love this app, but it's broken! Please help Wolfram!
  • Useless

    By dame wang
    It takes considerable talent to make an app this bad. You enter in data, from pull down lists, press compute, and the app says it doesn't understand your input - the same input it gave you! Useless.
  • Needs Internet for any request, few graphics.

    By Fun sapian
    Data can be stored by app for short term recall (up to week), the sunrise/sunset prediction is good for months. Graphics barely used, so can't read info at a glance. Detail of info is excellent, but ease of usability is very, very low.
  • handy

    i dislike the sun. this app helps me avoid it. really though, this little gem of an app is simple, thorough, and quite detailed in its calculations. i solidly recommend it to anyone looking to avoid skin cancer or burning flesh. no one likes burning flesh.
  • Good info, laggy info input

    By shicaca44811
    I like the info & useful advice on SPF. It does, however, lag quite heavily when you input info. Also, it would be useful to have your info saved as a default for skin type, day in advance, ect.
  • No More Sunburn for Mathemagicians!

    This app is one pretty *cool* collection of essential utilities, some of which I do not have already ... not only can I now compute how safe it is to work outside, but to get the current weather in a mathematic app is really *Cool* plus gaining the expertise to see the sun-earth-moon configuration is breathtaking. Seriously, this is one of many apps from Wolfram that I have on my iPad and access almost daily. When the school year returns, access will then become daily.
