Technology no longer takes decades, it’s evolving at a phenomenal speed in turn also driving our lives, making it better and easier. Summer is one of the brightest seasons of the year, yet this season could leave you with a sting if you don’t not take care of yourself properly. What’s more we get summer vacation and need to plan carefully to make most of it.
By the title you have guessed it. We are going to present you some smart phone app that will help you this summer.
Water is precious
The first step to conserving water is understanding how much water you actually use. H2O Tracker (iOS, Android) is a free app that helps you track both your inside and outside water usage. All you have to do is answer questions (there are a few questions that ask about your shower head/faucet output, but the app walks you through finding those numbers) about your household’s water usage, and the app figures out what areas you need to work on. The app also awards points for answering questions and taking steps to conserve water — if you live in the Aurora Water district, you can sign up for an H2O Tracker account and redeem those points for tangible prices, such as wildflower seeds or a shower head.
Dehydration is really common during summers. It can make you tired, sleepy, cause headache or even feel dizzy. This is why it is essential to keep drinking water and other fluids. This app will remind you to take a break from your busy schedule and drink water. Users are required to enter their current weight, and the app helps them determine how much water their body needs. You can also track your water-drinking habit through a weekly, monthly and yearly report provided by the app.

Get Shape this Summer
Exercising is extremely important but you’re not going to get very far if you don’t keep an eye on your diet as well. Calorie Counter by MyFitnessPal is pretty much as good as you can possibly get on Android. It logs your calories and has a database of over four million foods so you can find what you ate and keep an accurate count. There is also a web interface you can use if you need it and a pro version for $0.99 available as in app purchase. We understand that this seems odd on a list of workout apps and fitness apps, but dieting is important.

Google Fit has been around for a while now and has been quietly updated over the last year to give it all kinds of functionality. Now, it’s one of the best fitness apps out there. Its best feature is its complete and total integration with Android Wear which makes this a must-try option for those who rock a smartwatch. On top of that, you’ll get stats to analyze, goals to conquer, and various types of tracking. It’s still a bit more simple than other offerings, but this one is entirely free pretty much forever.

Travel this Summer
One of the best apps on the market that analyze an archive of data, Hopper spots trends in airfare prices and predicts the best time to pounce on low fares. Once you plug in your preferred departure and destination info, Hopper pulls up a color-coded multimonth calendar that presents the best time to fly at the cheapest cost. It also tells you when to expect prices to rise or fall. It will watch a trip for you and send alerts when the price drops. Free.
This concierge app is a handy travel guide with curated suggestions for the best sights, restaurants, and shopping for four types of trips: business, pleasure, romance, or a family visit. It includes self-guided walking tours and mapped routes for a morning run, and themed itineraries feature Woody Allen’s New York City and a gin lover’s tour of London. The downside? It’s available for only 12 cities in the U.S. and Europe—and unfortunately the avatar for Clarice looks nothing like Jodie Foster. Free.
