Beach, city or mountain apps?
How many times have you been asked, “Where are you going on your vacation” recently? Well, let’s do it once more: Where are you going on vacation? Do you plan to relax on the beach, tour the mountains or enjoy the half-empty city? Well, why not all three? Our perfect summer plan offers a few days by the sea, a brief nature retreat, and a lot of fun activities in the city. Cool, right?
Don’t waste your precious time looking for the apps that you're going to use during your vacation, especially since you have to spend your time packing!
The gauge of perfection for a beach day entirely depends on the weather. Take a look at the forecast with Weather Live beforehand. Even if it’s cloudy, don't forget to protect yourself from the sun. To see the potential damaging effects of prolonged sun exposure, check the ultraviolet radiation levels so you can plan to keep your skin healthy. After all, getting a sunburn on your first day at the beach is never a good idea!
A huge beach umbrella and the sea breeze are the perfect pairings for reading. In fact, summer is the time when we usually catch up with all those books we've been waiting to get our hands on. Prepare to open iBooks and free your imagination. If you're looking for some action, you can keep yourself fit with 8fit and its dedicated beac- training modules or, why not give water sports a try with Wisuki.
Wikiloc is the ideal app to get lost in the outdoors with your iPhone. It has more than eight million routes, many of which lead you to some of the most spectacular mountain landscapes in the world. Of course, when you go hiking, pack lots of water and check WaterMinder from time to time. During the summer, keep yourself well-hydrated to avoid heatstroke.
Food is also key in regaining strength and, of course, to enjoying your time up in the mountains. And there's nothing like a great mountain picnic to get some rest and recover. If you're already tired of sandwiches, try Yummly for healthy recipes that are fresh and easy to prepare. Oh! And take a few pictures with Camera+2 to capture the best moments of your trip forever.
Big cities can be wonderful during the summer. They cool down the high temperatures with a refreshing array of outdoor activities and fun nightlife. It's the perfect time to go to that trendy restaurant with TheFork, go shopping without the throngs, or admire—without being surrounded by a horde of tourists—the masterpieces of some of the best museums in Europe, like the Prado, with Second Canvas.
If you're more likely to spend the day lying on the couch, enjoying your brand new AC, you can catch up with all the Netflix series everyone is talking about.
