Here comes summer. With Memorial Day now unofficially jump-starting summer, it’s time for fun in the sun. We’ve found some super apps well worth packing on your smartphone this summer.
One place we all plan on going is the beach, and the 99-cent Beach Finder app for the iPhone and Android has a searchable database of 5,300 beaches. You can search or beaches near you or use it to plan out places you want to visit. The app provides directions, reviews and pictures.
If your summer travels take you to an amusement park, you may need help finding where you parked. Same as at airports and any large parking lot. The 99-cent Park ‘n Find app for the iPhone lets you tag your location and then, with the phone’s built in GPS function, shows a map that automatically zooms and pans as you move closer to your parking location
Finally, on the way to your summer destination, you can play the old favorite License Plate game, using this $1.99 iPhone app to keep track of the plates you found, log your visits and look up information on the different states.
