6 apps for keeping your summer memories

The epic fort made in the backyard, the song sang in the car on the way to the cottage, the crazy s’more concoction invented by the campfire – make sure none of that goes undocumented. Equip yourself with the right tools so you can simply bust out your iPhone and snap, record, or post right in the moment.
