      Tech This Out: Cold Weather Apps

      By Molly O'Brien

      UPDATE:

      Upon further review{} I do NOT reccomend the Winter Wake Up app.{} I love the concept. Unfourtunatly I couldn't get the thing to work on my phone. Everytime I went to set the alarm the screen froze. At first it worked fine but I did read mixed reviews online. I suggest avoiding the app, its a waste of space until the fix a few bugs.

      {}

      Here are a few apps for this cold weather "issue" we're having.

      The Winter Survival Kit is a free app for androids and iPhones{} you'll want to have especially if you're planning a trip to the mountains or there's a big storm coming.

      {}{}{}{} You can store emergency contact numbers and incase you get stranded....hit the big red button.

      {}{}{}{} The app will provide survival tips and locate nearby gas stations,

      {}{}{}{} The "gas calculator" will help you estimate how long you can run your engine with remaining fuel.

      {}{}{}{} There's even an alarm reminding you to check the exhaust pipe for snow build up, helping to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.

      {}

      And if you just want to get out of the cold weather all together, take a spur of the moment vacation!

      {}{}{}{} Hotel Tonight is a must have app...and you can use it any time of year.

      Hotel Tonight let's you book same-day hotel rooms for up to 70% off.

      {}{}{}{} You can book in cities across the world.

      The app is free and i haven't read a bad review.

      {}{} Oooh!Oooh! AND Hotel Tonight offers promotional discounts like a $25 credit when you sign up.
