PHILADELPHIA, June 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- It's that time of year again when everyone is either chasing the sun or trying to avoid it. TANtastic is the new must-have iPhone and iPad app that helps with both summertime activities.
Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars in the App Store, and with rave reviews, TANtastic is available now via iTunes:

TANtastic is the only mobile app to offer an Hour-by-Hour UV Index for today, and for the next five days to come. Crisply designed, the app displays the hourly UV data on a colorful and easy to read bar graph for today; swipe left for hourly views of the three and five day forecasts.
Powered by fully licensed UV Index data from AccuWeather, Inc., the global leader in weather information, TANtastic features the most accurate and reliable UV Index information in the industry, available for the location of any pool, beach, backyard, or outdoor event – worldwide.
As the UV Index begins to rise, this app is packed with features, and may very well be the perfect outdoor planning tool for the summer:
- Easy to use GPS lookups for current location and dropdown list of recent cities; or you can enter a new city name anywhere in the world for pending travel.
- An Information button that educates users on current UV ratings and offers recommendations on how to plan for such conditions.
- Severe Weather Warnings with a link to the National Weather Service report.
- An in-app Timer/Stopwatch function to keep track of time in the sun as to not over expose.
- A Sessions feature allows users to create a log to review their collective time outdoors. This feature captures weather conditions, UV severity and time in the sun; also allows for personal entries such as what SPF was applied and the outcome.
- A built-in Social feature lets users share photos via text message or email, or post to popular social media outlets like Facebook and Instagram right from the app.
This essential summer planning tool takes the guess work out of when and how to spend time in the sun.
