It may seem like autumn is inching closer as kids go back to school and the September issues start to appear on store shelves, but let's be honest. It's still 93° outside, and we'd all rather be hanging out by the pool. So I couldn't resist sneaking in just one more summer-y download for your desktop and phone.
