Top 5 Apps for the Summer! #BetterMoments

This post is brought to you by #BetterMoments.

I can’t believe that summer is right around the corner!  It doesn’t seem possible with the how cold this spring has been, but I know it is coming.  I am so excited to be able to get outside in the garden, and enjoy everything a New England summer has to offer.  It really is the best place to be in the summer months!  Here are the top five apps to help plan your summer fun.


Hipmunk is a great tool to find the best hotel and flight rates out there.  It searches hundreds of travel sites, making sure that you are able to find the best rates and the most convenient schedule for you.

Google Calendar is a great way to keep everyone’s schedules organized.  My husband loves to have everything digital.  It is great to have the push notifications and know exactly where everyone needs to be and when.  The ability to sync calendars across multiple devices is a huge help when trying to get to all the activities summer seems to bring.

The Yahoo Weather App offers tons of detailed information on everything weather.  It has information on wind and precipitation as well as sunrise and sunset times – which are perfect for those days at the beach.  Seeing the sunrise at the beach is probably one of my favorite things.  Don’t get caught off-guard by a thunderstorm coming through!

It seems like I am constantly documenting my days with the kids (and my garden).  Snapseed offers pro-level photo editing capabilities in a user-friendly interface.  It is great for perfecting photos that you take with your iPhone 6.  You can also easily share the photos by e-mail and on Facebook and Twitter.

Summer is a wonderful time for sports.  People are able to keep track of their favorite sports teams with The Score app.  It provides news and scores from a bunch of leagues and events.  You can also get live updates so you are never out of the loop.

Having access to these apps on your iPhone 6 or other mobile device is great, but not if you don’t have the signal to use them.  I love that US Cellular has such a high quality 4G LTE network, and that they have national coverage.  No matter where I am this summer, I will be able to keep track of what is going on!


If you have kids that are going to be out and about on their own, don’t forget to download the Parent-Child Wireless Agreement so you can all be on the same page with what is appropriate cell phone usage.

  1. I don't think I've heard of US Cellular but sounds great, though! I need to get that Hipmunk app for traveling this summer. I like that they have a parent-child wireless agreement, something I'd love to have for my kids when they're old enough to carry cell phones. Pinning this, thanks for sharing!

  2. My kids love the Weather App. They check it every morning before getting dressed. I like that it lets them feel in control a little bit more and they love knowing what's going on.

  3. I LOVE Snapseed for editing my pictures. You're the only one I know that has ever heard of it, but I use it all the time. Also, my calendar saves my sanity - well, what's LEFT of it anyway. Thanks for sharing.
