If you live in a region where it can get hot in the summer, there have no doubt been a few days where the heat gets extremely unbearable. Here are the best iPhone apps to help you survive the summer heat.
The summertime is the best time to get outside and doing something fun, whether it’s going for a swim, playing at the park, or riding bikes, summer is a time for enjoying the outdoors and soaking in the beautiful weather.
However, sometimes it can get really hot. Just this past weekend in the midwest, it got up into the high 80s with humidity around the 70% mark, which makes it feel even hotter than the official temperature suggests. These are the days where having fun outside is a bit difficult.
However, with the right iPhone apps, you can at least survive these hot days and even thrive during them. There are apps that can teach you how to grill (a perfect summer activity) and eve apps that can show you the nearest park or movie theater if you need to escape the summer heat for a little bit.
If you need something more serious, you can even get an app that tells you how to treat a sunburn, dehydration, or heat exhaustion.
In any case, here are the best iPhone apps to have on your person when you find yourself in the sun during the hot summer months.

This one's a pretty obvious choice -- you'll want some sort of weather iPhone app so that you can check out the temperature and humidity, which are two of the biggest factors when it comes to how hot it gets outside.
Just looking at the temperature can be fine and all, but with 80% or even 70% humidity, that can add another 10 degrees or so to the temperature. It's like a wind chill factor but for the summer time.
While there is a handful of weather apps you can choose from, Yahoo Weather is the best one for most users. It includes all of the details that you'd need without the advanced features that most casual users wouldn't understand.
If you do want something more advanced, NOAA Weather is a good option.
