        You can have a lot of fun with an app called Roadtrippers. Search along your route or plan a road trip with their free online trip planner. Sync it with your smartphone for turn-by-turn navigation. Roadtrippers is a powerful route planner, perfect as a RV or family trip planner. It lists all the cool, offbeat and major tourist events for you to visit on your road trip.
        I talk a lot about weather apps, that's because new and improved ones keep coming out. The new NOAA app for Android and Apple is high res and one of the better I've seen for storm alerts. It provides fast and easy to figure weather info needed to plan your summer fun.
        Finally, if your summer travel plans are abroad, you need Word Lens. Point your camera's video camera at any text and it translates it into the language of your choice. Google recently purchased this company for it's Google Glass, so it's going to be big. Right now, all language packs are free for Android and Apple devices.
        For local weather, check out the NBC 2 app for Android and Apple.
