Well, it is officially summer, at least in my house, if not on the calendar. Caitlin left behind her sophomore year of school on Wednesday, making thursday the first day of summer vacation. And let me tell you, those kids are already driving me crazy with the whole “I am so bored” thing. We are planning to take a few road trips this summer, but nothing too drastic. Probably going to stay within a 200 or so mile radius of the house. Before I head out, or you for that matter, there are a few mobile apps to organize your life this summer.
Today’s mobile devices can be loaded with apps that can help plan a trip, organize a busy calendar and keep you up to the minute on summer thunderstorms. Whether you are staying local this summer like we are, or planning a trip somewhere, U.S. Cellular’s national coverage can keep you connected wherever you are. Devices from U.S. Cellular like my iPhone 6, can help simplify and enhance summer so we can spend more time doing the things we love, like spending time with my family and friends or relaxing at the pool (Cannonball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Here are my four favorite mobile apps to help plan activities, share memories and apps to organize your life I have downloaded on my iPhone 6 from U.S. Cellular:
Hipmunk can help find the best flight and hotel deals and book them immediately. The app searches hundreds of travel sites to help ensure you find the most convenient arrangements and the best price for you.
Google Calendar is one of those apps to organize your life I cannot live without. It helps you keep your busy summer schedules in one convenient place. This app allows users to sync calendars across multiple devices, and push notifications will help ensure your family makes it to every practice, family party and appointment on time.
Don’t get caught off-guard by a summer shower or severe weather with the Yahoo Weather app. It offers detailed information on wind, precipitation, sunrise and sunset times and provides twice daily notifications to prepare you for changing conditions.
- For those looking to edit and share their favorite summer memories, Snapseed offers pro-level photo editing capabilities in an intuitive, user friendly interface that is great for perfecting photos taken on your phone. Snapseed also allows users to share their photos via email, Facebook and Twitter.
- People can also keep track of their favorite sports teams and players wherever they are this summer with The Score app, which provides news and scores from a multitude of leagues and events and provides live updates on teams so users never be caught out of the loop.
With the strength of U.S. Cellular’s high-quality network and national coverage, U.S. Cellular smartphone and tablet users can access these helpful apps whether at home or on vacation this summer.
