Coppertone launches MyUVAlert app

NEW YORK Sun care brand Coppertone has developed an iPhone application to help consumers stay sun safe.

With the Coppertone MyUVAlert app, consumers can get local UV index forecasts, custom sunscreen reapplication reminders, individualized product recommendations, coupons and sun protection tips.

The custom reapplication reminders allow for more frequent reminders when swimming or sweating and can be set based on activity or personal preferences.

The sunscreen product profiles and recommendations are tailored to each family member. Users can generate a recommendation list for the whole family at once, making shopping easier.
