Wellness/Prevention: Mobile App Promotes Sun-Safety.
Personalized, real-time sun protection advice provided by a smartphone app may help keep users from receiving a harmful dose of ultraviolet radiation by encouraging them to seek out shade. Participants in a recent study who used the Solar Cell mobile app were more likely to use wide-brimmed hats, sunscreen, protective clothing, and stay in the shade than non-app users when researchers followed up with them seven weeks later.
