Summer will be here soon and whether you plan to travel, stay right in your own backyard, or barely leave the house, there are lots of apps and websites that can make life better. Here are a few of our favorites.

AllTrails

AllTrails has the largest collection of detailed, hand-curated trail maps so you can hit the trail with confidence. Anytime. Anywhere.

LeafSnap

When you discover a beautiful wildflower or unusual looking shrub, and you struggle to discern its genus. Instead of wasting time trawling through websites or asking your gardener friends, why not simply take a snap and have an app do the work for you?

Night Sky

Quickly identify stars, planets, constellations and satellites above by simply holding your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch to the Night Sky!

Spotify

Spotify lets you search for any track, artist, album, or playlist and listen for free. Create and share playlists and get personal recommendations.
