(MAY 2012) – Pack your bags and soar into summer with AppCheck’s Summer Travel Week.  Radio’s only daily 15 second app review will feature a variety of unique travel apps for your upcoming summer excursions. This FREE week of content is available for broadcast beginning June 4th, just in time for summer travel and vacation!

Do you dread those long, unbearable airport waits? Hipmunk is a flight search app that sorts by “agony factors,” as in how long you will be traveling, how many stops are involved, and ticket price.

Are you planning a camping trip, but fear those pesky mosquitoes?  Bug Repellent, an app that emits a high frequency tone that insects hate and humans can’t hear, claims to be your solution. AppCheck knows if it actually keeps the pests away!

AppCheck’s Summer Travel Week delivers these app reviews and more beginning June 4th, 2012.  Stations interested in broadcast details should contact Melissa Bachtel at melissab@envisionradio.com or 216-831-3761 for more information.
