Thanks to our phones' built-in Maps applications, most people quit using standalone GPS units — and standalone GPS apps, for that matter — a long time ago. Garmin Viago is hoping to change all that. This premium navigation app offers online access to maps for many destinations around the world, as well as built-in features like current speed and speed limit, lane assist, weather information, in-map traffic display, and photo-realistic junction views. And if that's not enough, a number of add-ons are available for adding offline map access, real-time traffic with automatic rerouting, and even Garmin Real Directions, which gives you turn-by-turn directions by using landmarks, buildings, stop signs, and traffic lights instead of road names or numbers.
Amazon's had a music app for a while, complete with the ability to access any MP3's you've purchased from them, and anything you've uploaded from your own library to their cloud servers. But we get the feeling it's going to get a lot more use now. Thanks to the powers of Prime, Amazon Music now provides Amazon Prime members streaming access to over a million songs and hundreds of pre-made playlists — from the likes of Daft Punk, Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, and many more — all as part of their existing membership. Everything's ad-free, you can download Prime songs to your phone or tablet for offline access, and like we said above, it's free — so go ahead and grab it.
Surfing, sailing, swimming, skiing, snorkeling — no matter what you're doing on the water, you're going to want to check the conditions before you head out. SeaStatus has you covered. This free iPhone app offers you a bevy of information for over 2,000 different seaside locations in the U.S., including things like wind speed and directions, temperature, weather conditions, swell height and direction, water temperature, high/low tide, and even 48-hour forecasts.
