Mobile Apps We Can’t Live Without

Are you on the hunt for the best apps for your mobile device? We asked Coolibar’s employees what apps they can’t live without, and here is what they shared. These apps can help you keep your body and mind healthy with a little bit of fun and organization.

 

MyFitnessPal

We love MyFitnessPal to help track your daily calorie intake and exercise. It has one of the largest food databases, which is especially important if you like to eat out. You can look up restaurant menu items in advance to find those that fit your goals and enable you to stay on track. MyFitness Pal is simple to use and connects with other devices. You can also follow your friends to help keep you accountable. It’s completely free and available for iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone.

 

Headsup!

If you’re looking for something fun to do with your friends and family, try playing Heads Up! by Ellen Degeneres. Much like the game charades, the app has multiple categories to choose from, such as superstars, animals gone wild, and accents and impressions. This may be the best 99 cents you spend on an app. After each round you can watch the hilarity of your impressions on video from your iPhone or Anroid.

 

Omvana

Take time to meditate each day with Omvana. Meditation can increase happiness, improve sleep habits, decrease stress, and help you to live an overall healthier lifestyle. Omvana offers a variety of meditations ranging from three to 60 minutes, and it includes a music mixer so you can customize your practice. It also connects with the HealthKit app to help you stay calm throughout the day. Omvana will recommend mediations based on your stress level and state of mind. It’s free, but only available for iOS.

 

Suncreen Reapplying

In addition to wearing Coolibar, one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones from the sun is the Sunscreen Re-applying Reminder App. Whether you work outdoors, are at the beach, or enjoying a day at the pool, it’s important to apply and reapply sunscreen throughout the day. This app will help remind you when to reapply sunscreen for free! It’s available for both iOS and Android.

 

Trivia Crack

Think you know your trivia? Think again with Trivia Crack. Spin Willy the Wheel and challenge your friends in six different categories – science, entertainment, art, geography, sports, and history. Whoever wins all six categories first, wins the game. It’s free and available for iOS and Android.

 

todoist

Stay organized this year with Todoist by carrying your to-do list with you everywhere! It works on 13 platforms including iOS and Android, and syncs across all your devices so you never lose sight of your tasks. Download the app for free to try it out and upgrade to premium once you’re ready to take your productivity to the next level.

 

runkeeper

Whether you walk for fitness, run, jog or hike, Runkeeper is a great way to track your workouts and your routes, and get the motivation you need to hit your fitness goals. The app has more than 30 million people around the world using it to power their active lives, and it uses GPS technology in your device to track your fitness activity. The app syncs with MyFitnessPal, FitBit, LoseIt and more, and you can also link with friends through Facebook and Twitter.

 

timehop

If you’re feeling nostalgic, download Timehop. It syncs with your phone’s camera roll, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Foursquare, and Flickr to highlight moments of your life. It’s like celebrating #TBT everyday. Once you view one of your Timehop’s you’ll be addicted. It’s free and available for iOS and Android. We want to see you in your Coolibar of the past, present and future.

Let us know if you have any apps you can’t live without. Share them with us on our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Inside Coolibar What's Hot

What the Heck is a Rash Guard?

Coolibar Boys Rash Guard

And why should you buy one? If you grew up in Australia, as Coolibar founder John Barrow did, you already know the answers to these questions. If you didn’t, allow us to explain.

A rash guard is almost always a shirt, specifically one that’s worn in or around water. This might seem strange; after all, we have swim shirts and wraps and beach cover ups that do the same thing, right? But the original Australian rash guard was called a rash guard (or “rashie”) for its ability to protect against rashes.

In thCoolibar Rash Guard for Mene beginning, rash guards were almost exclusively for men. Almost all of these men were surfers and most of the rashes came from chafing – against fast-moving water, or against sand caught in waxed surfboards. These rash guards fit very tightly so they didn’t rub against the skin at all; sometimes people even used them underneath wet suits to protect them from neoprene chafing.

Rash guards were normally fashioned from combinations of polyester, nylon, lycra or spandex for stretch, breathability and quick-drying properties.

All of the above is still true today. But nowadays you don’t have to surf to wear a raCoolibar Rash Guards for Womensh guard (in fact there are specialized rash guards for a variety of sports including baseball).

You don’t have to be a guy, either – women’s rash guards are available in a range of colors and styles.

In fact: you don’t even have to be athletic to wear a rash guard. It helps…but it’s no longer necessary.

Much of this is because many of the “rashes” that today’s rash guards prevent are not caused by surfboards or saltwater or too much body motion. Rash guards today actually guard against the sun’s UV rays – good old-fashioned sunburn.

That means UPF 50+ sun protection. And all of a sudden, a rash guard isn’t so strange after all.

Latest Fashion Trend: The Bucket Hat?

Coolibar Bucket Hat

We first started hearing rumblings about his about a year ago, when some of the hip fashion bloggers started saying the bucket hat was a thing again. We love bucket hats; admittedly, we have an extra-large crush on them because they protect your face. But we last saw our friend the bucket hat as a major fashion player in like 1999. We thought these rumblings would go away.

They didn’t. Instead, they got stronger.

And stronger. Rihanna in a bucket hat? That’s a long way from Gilligan, or even LL Cool J. The latest homage comes from Refinery29, and we’re sure there will be more.

Coolibar has always offered bucket hats, but if there’s going to be a trend we’re more than “Happy” to throw our hat into the ring.

Of course, Coolibar bucket hats have an extra bonus: they’re UPF 50+. How much trendier can you get?

July is UV Safety Month!

July - UV Safety Month

It seems there is a month for everything, but this one comes directly from the US Department of Health and Human Services: it’s UV Safety Month!

This makes sense. July is one of the hottest months in the US, and it’s also right in the middle of prime vacation time. As we know, UV rays from the sun are the main cause of skin cancer, which is the nation’s most common type of cancer. And that’s not to mention the painful sunburns, dry skin and wrinkles that UV rays can cause.

Coolibar supports the efforts of the United States HHS department and the Federal Occupational Health agency to raise awareness about skin cancer and the dangers of UV rays. They include encouraging families to adopt good sun safety habits together, to include wearing sunscreen; we would add don’t forget your UPF 50+ sun protective clothing!

Watch for posts throughout July about UV safety for your skin and even for your eyes!
