The summer season is just about to be upon us, and this week came bearing a whole slew of apps ready to make sure you're having maximum fun while maintaining maximum responsibility. We hope.
Festival Ready: Summer approacheth, and with summer comes festivals—all sorts of festivals! Whether you're a music buff, renaissance enthusiast, or food and wine connoisseur there's a festival out there somewhere waiting for you. Now an actual Swiss Army knife is handy to have, but probably won't do you too much good at any of the above. A festival-specific Swiss Army app though? Just what ye olde doctor ordered. [Free]
Beer Beer Hunt: Just like Untappd, Beer Hunt for iOS combines the best parts of a night out drinking beer with the best parts of Foursquare. The difference here, though, is that Beer Hunt turns all into one colossal social, brew-drinking, liver-killing experience. [Free]
Pay.Me: Most people have sold at least something online at this point in their lives. It's an easy way to get rid of crap you don't need and make a little cash in the process. But there's inevitably a dip in the joy of your newfound wealth when you realize that your chosen platform has taken their fair share of your reward. Pay.me for iOS wants to make sure you receive the exact amount you're after. [$1]
Thinglist: Apple's proprietary note-taking app is mediocre at best. You can make new notes, write things on them, and that's about it. So if you're one of those people who uses his or her phone to jot down pretty much anything that strikes your fancy, you're going to need something a little different. Thinglist carries the same minimalist looks as the stock note-taking app but packs way more of a punch. [$2]
