In the words of the classic sung by ‘Ella Fitz Gerald‘: It’s summertime and the living’ is easy.”

Thankfully with the latest new technology, its bound to be even easier. It’s no secret that this year startups, technology trends and game changing apps are launching almost daily to solve the World’s biggest problems, offer unique solutions and act as a method of change from the way we’ve been doing things for the past 100 years.

This Summer while you’re attending events, relaxing, catching up with friends and family, or even working we’ve narrowed down a five great apps that you’ll love this Summer!

1. Snapchat

If you’re still stuck on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, you’ve been living under a rock if you’re not on Snapchat yet. Once you get the hang of it (especially, trying the various fun filters), you’ll be hooked. The platform is catching on rapidly, and is in a lane of its own when it comes to social media – since messages and stories disappear within a matter of seconds (or 24 hours) compared to other apps and social media platforms.

According to the Wall Street Journal, for a while the app was dominated by younger users, and now it’s finally catching on to older users, too.

2. Meal Pass App

You’ll love this app if you’re both: living in a busy city and a foodie. For example: living in a city such as New York or San Francisco, we’ve all had to go through waiting in a long line to grab our lunch, finding it difficult to find something good to eat or just not wanting to spend $15 on lunch.

The newest app, Meal Pass, is hoping to change these experiences for just under $6 per/day. Other awesome Meal Pass perks includes: a variety of the best restaurants to choose from in various major cities, skipping the line and more! Get on the list now.

If this sounds like a common dilemma the GeoZilla app is the solution.

Have you and your friends ever went to an event and it was completely dead? Or, are you seeking new hot spots to hang out at this Summer? Or possibly, you’ve been out in the town when the night is still young, trying to figure out what to do or where to go next?
