Beat the Heat!  by jelagasse

jelagasse says: The east coast has felt like the inside of a toaster these past few days. Here are apps to help keep you inside and cool.
jelagasse's picks
  1. Museum Finder
    Museum Finder Now is the perfect time to take a stroll around a museum for several hours while the heat melt everything in sight. If you're an NYC person, I recommend the Met, or the MoMa, which not only feel like the inside of a frigidaire, but are huge enough to allow for hours of browsing in the cool.
  2. Fandango Movies
    Fandango Movies Sometimes it's beautiful and sunny and wonderful, and you can't imagine spending two and a half hours in the dark. Other days, you feel like an ant under a magnifying glass. Fandango can hook you up with showtimes and tix on the go. Beat the heat with everyone's favorite wizard, or watch Justin Timberlake run around in his underwear. It's the perfect way not to melt.
  3. WeatherBug
    WeatherBug Keep an eye on what's going on out there. If your schedule is anything like mine, it involves a lot of bouncing around and running in and out of offices and buildings. Use this app to keep an eye on the temperature, and on that all important heat index.
  4. YORK MY
    YORK MY If you're going to take the plunge and buy an AC, use this app to help calculate the size/BTUs you'll need to cool your room efficiently. Also, as a 5 year owner of one, I can't recommend energy star appliances enough. They do the job while keeping the energy use down!
