It's the weekend!
We’ve made it through another week, and now it’s time to think about what to do with the next 48 hours of free time. I know I’ve spent plenty of weekends trying to figure out what to do when I could have just pulled out one of these 10 apps.
Take a look–you may just discover something right around the corner that you never knew existed.
Flinder is a really simple app that suggests things to do based on your location, the time of day, and the weather. It will suggest all sorts of activities, and if you tap “Sounds Good” it will bring up a list of the closest options in that category.
Flinder is an iOS exclusive.
If you have kids you know how difficult it can be to find weekend activities to keep everyone interested. Yuggler has you covered.
This mobile app is designed for parents and has incredibly robust search features. You’re sure to be able to find an activity or two to please even the pickiest of kids!
Yuggler is available on iOS.
Gravy helps you find events based on how you’re feeling. Want something intellectual? It can sort by that. How about lively? It’ll do that too. It also has a page for trending events so you can see what’s popular in your area.
Weekends–they used to be about relaxing. Now it’s all about getting stuff done around the house, right? If you’re fortunate enough to live in one of TaskRabbit’s pilot cities you can find someone else to do all those pesky little things you needed to do this weekend, giving you more free time to use the other apps in this gallery to enjoy yourself.
If outdoor adventures are more your style Bivy can help you choose the right one. It gives you a listing of trails in your area, information about them, user ratings, and maps. You can also track your activity on a trail to see elevation changes and other stats about your hike/bike/etc.
Bivy is available on iOS.
If you don’t live in the northern LA area you’re out of luck, because Joymode is an awesome way to customize a weekend experience. Joymode has a bunch of curated experience packages that contain everything you need to do something awesome this weekend. You just reserve the package and Joymode delivers the equipment so you can have a blast!
Hopefully they expand to other locations soon.
Joymode is available on iOS.
You won’t get much more from this app than a snarky suggestion, but it could be the final push you need to do something. Tap New Suggestion and it will provide a new possibility.
Sure, it’s basic, but sometimes that’s all you need.
WKND is available on iOS.
Songkick is for the person who can’t get enough of live music. The app will scan your iTunes media and Spotify library to build a customized list of shows in your area that it things you may be interested in. It also provides links out to ticket purchasing websites so you can save a spot the moment you decide you want to go.
Events from Facebook
I don’t know about you, but I use Facebook for event scheduling pretty regularly. If you’re like me you might wish there was a centralized, easy-to-use events function in the Facebook app, to which Facebook responded by creating a whole separate one.
Events from Facebook compiles your events, ones your friends are going to, ones near you, and some search capabilities into one convenient app. It’s sure to be a good download if you use Facebook for event scheduling.
