You’ve got to get outside and enjoy the hot summer sun, but that doesn’t mean technology can’t be a big help in getting you there. There are so many different apps available for both Android and iOS platforms devoted to making summer better that you’d never be able to make use of all of them. The more you can narrow your list down, the better.While we could probably fill an entire book with great summer apps, here are a handful that you simply can’t afford to ignore now that the sun is shining bright.AwayFindFor busy professionals, getting out of the office during the summer can be easier said than done. You’ve got to take time for yourself and unplug, however, if you want to have a happy and productive life without suffering from burnout. For this, you have AwayFind at your fingertips. AwayFind helps to filter your email inbox when you go on vacation so that you’re only receiving and dealing with messages that are of crucial importance. There’s a lot to be said for the peace of mind that can come from stepping away from all but the most important emails your receive each day, and even though it isn’t cheap at $4.99 per month, AwayFind is the ticket to the most relaxing vacations you’ve had in years.Download: Android | iOSWeatherbugKeeping an eye on the weather is one of the most important things you can do throughout the summer to ensure that you don’t make poor planning decisions. While there are countless weather apps available for both major mobile platforms, we like Weatherbug the most. It’s simple, clean and effective, providing all of the information you need in order to plan a fun day or week and avoid getting caught in a storm. Plus, it’s free.Download: Android | iOSEventbriteIt doesn’t matter if you’re currently living somewhere you’ve been for years or if you’re traveling somewhere for the first time — you need to know what’s going on around you this summer. If you were to tell people years ago that you’d be able to scan the area around you for events that are happening in real time by simply picking up a device that lives in your pocket, they’d likely have called you crazy. This is exactly what makes smartphones so brilliant, however, and it’s where Eventbrite comes in. Eventbrite gives you a wealth of information about music, sports, art and other types of events that are happening around you, regardless of where you may be. It’s excellent for those who are on a trip and have a leisurely day on their hands, but it’s just as effective for planning a week of fun in your hometown. The fact that it doesn’t cost any money certainly doesn’t hurt, either.Download: Android | iOSTake a moment to load your phone up with the best summer apps available. Then, get outside and enjoy the sunshine! If You Haven’t Visited the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, What Are You Waiting For? last_img read more
