As you can probably tell from my calendar (pictured in the first photo above), I’m jetting off to Michigan today for a week’s vacation with my family. For me, vacation is a time to put aside my gadgets—or at least, turn off my e-mail—and focus on sun, sailing, and cervezas.
But for everyone who has to work next week, I’ve got a summer treat: a list of smartphone apps that can add some new kick to your routine. From time management to note-taking to after-work relaxation, these apps represent the latest in good design and fun features.
The look and feel of the iPhone will get a major overhaul this fall when Apple releases iOS 7. But my goal with today’s list is to show that you don’t have to wait that long to load up your phone with apps that extend its functions in interesting new ways.
Check out the images above for detailed descriptions of the apps. Here’s a complete list, with prices and links to the iTunes App Store. (Apologies to Android and Windows Phone owners: most of these apps are iOS-only.)
