    The main benefits for me are to know when I am safe without sunblock. I used to use it from crack of dawn until night. Now I know when sun is low so I am okay without. Thanks cancer council.

    It continuously keeps trying to load UV information and covers over the main part of the screen. Needs to be fixed. I'll go back to using ARPANSA for now

    Updated for summer! Ha! A bit late for summer! In Sydney we've hit winter in summer! 1st February 2015 is not the start of summer!

    Doesn't always do the reminder, and gets stuck saying it's loading UV even though behind the message you can see it's updated the UV rating

    The app always gets stuck on startup at the "Please wait, loading UV information" popup. I have to kill it and restart, after which it works after the second start. I get the same problem each day.

    This has stopped loading uv since the new update on a galaxy s5. Works for a while if you reinstall it. Also it would be good to have it as a widget as well then I would give it 5 stars.

    Great information and advice. Would have loved (and given 5 stars) if it came with a widget for home screen.
