Whether you are skiing the slopes or tanning on the beach this spring break, don’t be caught without a fully loaded iPhone. Every awesome spring break destination in the world has a plethora of travel guide iPhone apps, but here is a six-pack of outside-the-box iPhone apps to ensure a satisfying 2010 spring break.
iPhone apps for boarding and more
If you are snowboarding or skateboarding through your spring break, check out the free Boarder Lounge iPhone app and start chatting away with fellow boarders near you. Browse fellow members to find like-minded boarder friends, join an active group of boarders, hang out in the virtual lounge or look up local boarding spots close to you all with this free iPhone app.
If you are stuck in the Midwest this spring break, check out the free Perfect North Slopes iPhone app and plan a road trip to this affordable ski haven in southern Indiana. I may be a bit biased since I’m from this small Indiana town, but trust me, the people are sweet as can be, dining and hotel prices are cheap, you can buy beer at a drive-thru liquor store, and there is a casino in town if you want to go gambling after you tucker yourself out from skiing and snow tubing fun at the slopes. View live Web cams, get snow reports and driving directions straight from this free iPhone app.
iPhone apps for the beach and beyond
Of course, almost everyone heads to Florida for spring break at one time or another. My first high school spring break trip was to Fort Lauderdale, complete with the requisite trip to the Elbo Room. If you are headed that way, check out the free World Famous Elbo Room iPhone app, in which you can view live Web cam footage of the legendary bar and the beach walk outside. The iPhone app also gives you current weather stats, lists current area events and shares photos from recent patrons.
And right down the A1A from the Elbo Room and Fort Lauderdale is the always super hot and fresh off this year’s Super Bowl madness Miami. Check out the Sexy Miami iPhone app ($1.99) to find out where to dine tantric, get a tattoo, sunbathe nude, share a hookah or even swim with the dolphins.
iPhone apps for the budget traveler
With traveling usually comes a budget, especially when it’s jobless teens or hardworking college students counting their pennies to get to Florida. So make your mother proud and download the TravelTab app (99 cents) and keep track of your vacation budget. It’s easy -- just enter expenses by type and day so you know right where your money is going (even if the majority of your money is going to a bar tab).
Finally, don’t leave mom and dad behind pacing the halls at night. Let them know what you are up to with the SodaSnap+ iPhone app ($1.99). With this iPhone app, you can create a virtual postcard using your spring break photos and customize it to email mom, complete with a link to a Google map of your current location. You can even share them via Facebook and Twitter. Just remember, sending mom a snapshot of you sharing a hookah on a nude beach in Miami with the Kardashian sisters will probably give her a heart attack.
