10 Top Apps You Need This Summer

As the weather heats up, we are here to keep you cool with the 10 top apps that you need this summer.

Smartphones have become integrated into modern life. A dizzying array of apps can turn your phone into a media center, a research tool, or a party planning station.

There were 2.8 million apps in the Google Play Store in March 2017, and Apple users had 2.2 million apps to choose from. With all of those apps at your fingertips, how do you know which ones to install?

Since summer is fast approaching we’ve collected the top 10 apps you should check out before summer is here.

1. Avast Antivirus & Security

With the discussion in the media around cyber security, you’ll need a good solution for your phone. Avast Antivirus & Security has a long history of great antivirus solutions for the PC, and their smartphone version is no different. You can add extra features with in-app purchases, but the basic protection is free.

2. Pocket

If you’re leaving the country, you’ll probably spend time away from an internet connection. Don’t worry; Pocket will provide plenty for you to read and watch in the meantime. Save articles or videos on a Pocket-enabled device. Then watch them at your leisure on long flights or on journeys where your connection is sporadic.

3. WifiMapper

Using your mobile data overseas can get expensive. But finding safe, free WiFi can sometimes prove to be difficult. WifiMapper works with crowdsourced maps so you can find out where the community gets free WiFi. Just log in and away you go.

4. SURE Universal Remote

Got a new streaming device? Bought a new smart TV? Control all of your smart devices from a single interface using the SURE Universal Remote app. It’s easy to use, and we regularly add new appliances and smart devices to the app so you’ll only need one remote for your smart home.

5. Manything (Beta)

Manything App

We’re huge fans of the Internet of Things (IoT), and we’re thrilled to see new IoT tech become available. Manything offers a simple way to start

setting up your smart home. Hook up an old smartphone and use the app (in beta) to turn it into a security camera. You can keep an eye on your home while you’re on vacation.

It’s free to use for a month, although costs are incurred if you connect additional phones.

6. OverDrive

OverDrive App

If you want to make sure you have plenty of reading material during the holiday season, take a look at OverDrive. It allows libraries to opt-in to their service, meaning you can borrow eBooks or audiobooks from your couch.

You won’t get charged late fees because items return automatically. With over 30,000 libraries worldwide enrolled, you may find your library card has a new use on your smartphone.

7. Google Fit

Google Fit

If you’ve promised yourself a beach-ready body, it’s never too late to start. Google Fit is here to get you going. It tracks any walking, running or cycling activity while you carry your phone. Or you can hook it up to Android Wear smartwatches. It sets targets and integrates with other tracking apps to give you comprehensive fitness data.

8. Duolingo


It’s never too late to learn a new language. Duolingo offers 22 languages including German, Vietnamese and even Esperanto. The app uses a game-based method of learning, combining speaking, reading, listening, and writing exercises. Picking up points is easy, and you’ll get daily reminders to practice.

9. Hotels.com

Hotels.com App

If you’re going on vacation, you may no longer need separate apps like Uber, Groupon, or OpenTable. A lot of these companies have partnered with Hotels.com so you can do everything within one app. You’ll earn points as you book hotel rooms, but now you can plan outings, make reservations, and request rides at the same time.

10. Snapseed

Snapseed app

Whether you travel somewhere sunny or you settle for a staycation, you’re bound to take plenty of photos. You don’t need a flashy DSLR camera; just your smartphone and Snapseed.
