Five apps for fantastic fun of the fall season

For many people here in the US, summer is quickly coming to a close. School is back in session, summer vacations are done and the temperatures are getting a bit cooler. It can be hard to leave behind the fun of summer, so we’ve put together a list that’ll help you say goodbye to the warm, sunny weather and hello to fall.

Foliage Leaf Peepr (Free)

Fall means foliage and Yankee Magazine’s Leaf Peepr is one of the best iPhone apps for tracking foliage changes, especially in the Northeast. Yankee Magazine’s Leaf Peepr app helps fall foliage fans find and report on the best and brightest colors in the United States. Make foliage reports (called Peeps) by posting photos, writing comments and rating foliage status for your location.

Ski Safari (US$0.99)

For some people, fall is the season between water skiing and snow skiing. Yeah, we realize Ski Safari is not a ski simulation, but the iPhone and iPad game will entertain you with its winter-themed fun until the real snow starts hitting the ground.

Lego Halloween Creationary (Free)

Fall means foliage, apples, pumpkins and Halloween. Get ready for some spooky fun with this build-and-guess game from Lego. Each round starts with creepy Lego object and you have to guess what’s being built. The faster you guess, the more points your earn.

Photo Wall Pro ($2.99)

Now that summer is over, you are likely have a phone filled with photos. Don’t let those precious memories just sit there; make them into a collage with an app like Photo Wall Pro. The collage maker allows you to send your creation off as a postcard or share it with family and friends.

NFL Fantasy Football (Free)

Last, but far from least, is football, which kicked off earlier this week. If you haven’t started yet, now is the time to download this Fantasy Football app from the NFL and start managing your virtual team.
