The forecast looks good for lots of sun this weekend and that means you need protection from UV radiation. Check out the Coppertone MyUVAlert app.

This free, location-aware app is linked to The Weather Channel to bring you the latest local weather and UV index information. You can use it to set "suncare profiles" for the members of your family and even set sunscreen application reminders for each person. Here's a complete list of features.

  • Custom reapplication reminders, which even allow for more frequent reminders when swimming or sweating. You can set reminders that work for you and your family, based on activity or personal preferences. Customize with choice of sounds.
  • Sunscreen product profiles and recommendations tailored to each family member. You can even generate a recommendation list for the whole family at once, making shopping simple!
  • Local UV index and weather forecasts, so preparing for your vacation (or staycation) becomes a breeze.
  • Sun protection tips from the COPPERTONE® Solar Research Center.
  • Valuable coupons for your favorite COPPERTONE® products

The app currently is available for iPhone and iPod Touch.
