app hit list
Calvin, our app specialist has put together his summer app hitlist. Check out what you'll need for that perfect 5pm patio sesh

In case you didn’t know why everyone is glowing red… summer has finally arrived.  And I know you’re waiting for the clock to strike 5pm so you can hit that sunny patio along the water’s edge. But before that coveted 5pm hits, I also know there are still things to be done, people to snap chat, and plans to be made.

I’ve got three mobile apps to share that will help you be more productive, spend less time staring at a screen, and more time enjoying your Caesar…salad.

Wunderlist : A simple and beautifully designed app that helps you plan anything from your overseas adventure to sharing that shopping list with your loved one.

Why I love it:

  • Collaborate and share lists with friends or colleagues to help everyone stay in the loop.
  • With a mobile, tablet and desktop application that syncs seamlessly across all devices you’re always in the know on what needs to get done!
  • With the pro version, you can assign and delegate tasks to anyone, so nothing gets forgotten for that camping trip or work event.

Now that you’ve got your to-do list under control, how were you planning on getting to that patio? Well you guessed it…there’s an app for that.

Transit takes all that stress away and easily allows you to plan your trip. There is no other transit app that comes close in terms of UI design.

Why I love it:

  • Easily set a time for when you want to leave or when you want to arrive
  • Don’t know the exact street address?  You can simply type in a landmark or restaurant name and Transit will find it.
  • Its available in 39 cities  (most of the major ones) across North America and Europe

You’ve had a blast hashtaging your photos on Instagram, checking in on Foursquare and sharing your emotions on Facebook.  But now you’ve got to choose what beer is going to suit the occasion, and with craft beer being the new trend you need to start getting in the know.

Untappd allows you to socially share the brew you're currently sipping and where you're sipping it.

Why I love it:

  • you receive personalized beer suggestions
  • reviews from other users to help find your favorite new brew
  • the ability to find out which bars are serving your favourite beer and discover which beers are trending

You’re all set. You’ve got a solid to-do list, a way of getting there and back, and an easy way to discover the best beer and bars in your town.
