Planning Ahead for Fun in the Sun on Labor Day Weekend

The dog days of summer are coming to an end, and while the record breaking temperatures may be fleeting, there’s still time for fun and sun at the beach this Labor Day.

Get the most out of your three-day weekend by planning ahead with the help of your smartphone.

Find the best beaches in your area with U.S. Beach Finder, which helps you locate nearby beaches and monitor weather, moon phases, tides and more for any beach in the country.

Protect yourself and your loved ones from overexposure to the sun with MyUV Alert. Use the app to monitor local UV index forecasts, receive custom sunscreen reapplication reminders, get coupons, sun protection tips and more.

For surf-loving beach bums, a live streaming wave watcher called SurfLine shows you real time video at more than 100 breaks in the U.S., including Hawaii.

And finally, keep your smartphone sand-free and charged all day with accessories like the HTC Wireless Charging Cover.

Grab your sun block and your smartphone and don’t let the last days of summer get away from you.
