Summer is coming to a screeching end, and nobody can figure out how to stop it from happening. Can’t we just rewind the clock to June and forget that jackets exist for another three months? Maybe that’s not realistic, but these five free apps will help you make the most out of what’s left of summer before it’s gone for another year.
Get a room with HotelTonight
Find a last minute summer hotel room with HotelTonight. It doesn’t matter if you’re hitting the beach or going to visit family, you can find a great deal on lodging. In fact, the more last minute you plan, the more money you can save. Find your perfect vacation spot, book your flight, and then grab your room before summer ends completely.
Find some two-wheeled fun on Spinlister
This app lets you find a bicycle to rent at an affordable price from someone in the neighborhood. Forget those expensive rental services, and hit the road with someone else’s bicycle for a few hours with the help of Spinlister. Let the wind blow through your hair and enjoy the weather before autumn is over, too. As an added bonus, strap a GoPro onto your helmet and record your ride for your enjoyment when the ground is suddenly covered with snow.
Manage those tasks efficiently with 30/30
Set up your list of tasks, schedule a length of time for each one, and let 30/30 tell you when to move onto the next one. Whether it’s for work, that summer project you haven’t completed yet, or just getting back into school mode before the semester hits, 30/30 can help you plan your day out. The faster you get your work done, the sooner you can enjoy a few more beach days or weeks.
Why do all of the work yourself, when you can get someone else to do it for you? It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to get your lawn mowed or have the walls painted, you can find someone on TaskRabbit to do it for you. Don’t waste the last few days of summer toiling on those projects you can’t get to. Outsource them with TaskRabbit, and enjoy all that summer still has to offer you.
Summer has finally come to an end, and you have hours of summer videos to work through. For an extra special way to relive your summer, turn those videos into a montage or highlights reel with Splice. This app lets you trim, crop, and add effects like a Ken Burns filter. You can even add in your favorite summer song, either from your own iTunes account or Splice’s library of tracks. Take your on-the-go casual clips to professional grade, then share them with friends and family on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Vine.
Enjoy all that summer can offer you
Just because the summer months are waning, it doesn’t mean you have to give up all hope of some fun before autumn hits. Let these apps help you make the most of the last few weeks of summer, and then relive those memories when you need a reminder of what hot weather looks like.
