Sharing is caring!

Bumble – Summer fun app lists can never be complete without a great dating app. Bumble – created by an excommunicated member of the Tinder team, has a different approach to swipe dating. The concept is simple. Rather than the male/female waiting to message first, this app puts the onus on the ladies to make the first move. It’s a fun app to experiment with, and summertime always has love in the air – so you never know if you may just swipe right to the love of your life! (Free)

Enlight – The season of sun always makes life and the world around us seem much brighter and full of beauty. The Enlight app is a perfect companion when taking a great photo, but wanting to creatively enhance it before sharing with friends, family and the social universe. The app can easily complete simple tasks such as highlight the color of a pretty flower, or manipulating the beauty of a sunset, to super imposing and layering images to create beautiful pieces of digital art. No matter your requirements, Enlight is easy to use, yet a sophisticated photo editing app. ($3.99)

VIA –  An excellent ride sharing app, giving the usual suspects a run for their money (cough, Uber, cough, Lyft).

The app has a user friendly and familiar interface, making it simple to get from A to B with ease. Not only does it get you to your destination at a lower cost, but you get a chance to meet people at the same time.  (Free)

Splitwise – Every group of friends has that one person that is a stickler with money. Either they spend too much or too little – Splitwise may be the solution your crew needs this summer. Who bought the BBQ meat? Who paid last night’s drinking tab? Splitwise lets app users input, track and manage all the different expenses for camping trips or wild nights out. Users can log in to the same “tab” to add new expenses, include random IOU’s and monitor the current balance so friends can focus on fun and not finances.(Free)

Skyview – There is something soothing and beautiful about laying down in a field and staring up a sky full of stars.
