The winter chill is starting to break, and beach bodies are coming out of hibernation, ready or not. Your pre-summer vacation is the perfect time to hang out with friends, take a road trip and escape the cold (unless you’re heading to Vail this year). From travel search to managing money across friends, Android’s got you covered.

Lightbox Photos (Free)

For all that fun you’re having, you’ll want to take and share photos on the fly. While Android users can’t yet enjoy Instagram, there is the Lightbox Photos app to offer a great alternative. With an eye for design, this app is easy to use and makes photo-sharing an easy affair. Enhance your photos right after taking them, with retro effects and color tweaks. You can make photos public or private, and create your own Lightbox photo blog for a spring break collective. You can also share photos across top networks including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr and Foursquare.
