Addictive yet productive summer apps to download

(WBTV) - No matter what your plans are for the summer, these mobile apps will make it a fabulous, wherever you are.

Thankfully, we live in the age of technology that makes it easy to be on-the-go.

If you are planning to use this time to get in shape, lace up your sneakers and download Nexercise.

It's a great app if you need extra motivation. Nexercise rewards you for physical activity with points that are redeemable for gift cards, with little freebies that pop up along the way.

You also can compete against friends.

Meetup is a social app that will get you out of the house and face-to-face with people in your area who share your interests. If there isn't a group that interests you, you can create your own.

If you need some inspiration this summer then TED is your fix.The brief talks are given by some of the brightest and most innovative thinkers in the world.

Listen to one on the way to work or while at the pool and you'll feel smarter by the minute.

Odd chores and errands stack up surprisingly fast. I've tried many to-do apps, and Astrid Tasks & To-do List comes out on top as my favorite. It's simple, easy to use and an adorable octopus cheers you on to finish your next task.

You can also share your lists with friends and family.

So whether you're taking a road trip, making memories, or eating out you can just take life as it goes with a Smartphone.

The best feature about these apps is they're all available on Android and iOS. And all are free.

CamScanner lets you take photos of paper documents, then crops and adjusts them to look like they're scanned. You can sync your notes, save them as PDFs and organize them by date

With Goodreads you can see what your friends are reading, read reviews or check out pleasingly specific categories.
