Summer's coming, which means you have to get your beach bod ready to go. Use this running app to track your distance, push yourself farther and melt off those hibernation layers.
Memorial Day is right around the corner, which means that summer is finally here. With the warm breezes and lighter, longer days comes the perfect opportunity to load up your iPhone—and possibly your iPad—with some fresh new apps to embrace the summer weather. From flashlights to organizers, GPS mapping systems and fitness apps, the Apple App Store has everything you need to maximize your summer plans, be they in the office (ugh) or at the beach (yay). Best of all, most of these apps cost less than a dollar, and some are free, so whether you're making last-minute travel plans, checking in on the Olympic Summer Games in London (USA! USA!), or just checking the weather to see whether your mobile office is moving to the balcony tomorrow, this list should get you primed for sunning in shorts and working in shirtsleeves—just the way we know you like it.
