July is the heart of summer. And nothing says summertime like backyard barbeques and family road trips. July’s apps help smartphone users grill up mouth-watering meals and plan and navigate the ultimate summer road trip.
Weber® Grills: Available on Android and iPhone.
Whether you’re a grilling guru or novice, there’s plenty to know when it comes to the art of barbecue. And if you’re like me, you can use all the help you can get. That’s why I use the Weber® Grills app whenever it’s time to fire up the grill.
Weber® Grills is a comprehensive, easy-to-navigate app that covers all your bases when it comes to grilling. Featuring 75 mouthwatering recipes with full-color photos, detailed ingredients, step-by-step instructions, and user reviews, you won’t have a problem finding something delicious to impress your family and friends with—no matter what type of grill you use. Recipes are divided by food type, so you can choose from red meat, pork, poultry, seafood, or vegetables. There’s even a category for starters and desserts.
One of my favorite features is the grocery list function. Once a recipe is selected, you can tap an icon to have the ingredient list converted to an easy-to-use grocery list format, which makes shopping a breeze! Other fun and helpful features include food prep tips, grilling tutorials, and the ability to share your favorite recipes and grilling stories with other users.
If you love grilling, or you’re looking to perfect your barbecue techniques, Weber® Grills is a great source of inspiration for your next summer meal or backyard party.
Roadtrippers: Available on Android and iPhone.
I love road trips. There’s nothing better than hitting the open road and seeing new sights while spending quality time with the family. Planning the trip can be another story. Mapping out the route while searching for fun and interesting places to see along the way can be difficult and overwhelming. Thanks to Roadtrippers, planning my new adventures is now an enjoyable experience.
Roadtrippers takes the homework out of planning a road trip. You simply plug in where you want your trip to start and finish, and then choose from a list of attractions, historical sites, restaurants, accommodations, and much more along your route. The map will then populate with pins or a list, identifying recommended sights and services for your trip. It’s that easy! The app even estimates how much gas you’ll need for the trip.
When you’re ready to hit the road, you can use the app’s handy turn-by-turn directions feature to keep you on course to your destination. You can also save your desired attractions or favorite places to a bucket list, which will keep their location and information accessible at any time on any device you’ve synced your trip to.
Whether you’re looking for a historical landmark, a bite to eat, or you need some dependable driving directions to your destination, Roadtrippers is a must-have app to make your next highway adventure memorable.
