Yesterday summer officially began in North America, so I believe it is a good time to profile 20 free web applications for the iPhone that can be useful this summer season. All links will open the web application on your iPhone if you tap the links provided whilst using Safari.

If traveling you may wish to use to book a holiday using Orbitz, book a room at the Marriott or use Ou Dormir ? to find lodgings in France. To find a holiday on the cheap you might try Vacation Rentals on the Road if your travels are in Europe.

In Britain I have often used the TFA Journey Planner web app on my iPhone to find the best way to travel from Point A to Point B in London. Rounding out travel applications, a web-based World Time Zones app is available to use, a nice travel log web app appropriately named My Travel Log can help record your travels, or if you are hiking and really need to know your location – GPS Coordinates will show you where you are and let you easily copy GPS coordinates into another app.

If interested in wine or in touring a winery, I recommend using the WineWeb e-Marketplace. If you are American and cannot spend your pittance of allotted vacation days to use on a proper beach holiday, you can bring the beach to you using the Ocean View Cam web app.

People are active during the summer — even going to local events can be costly due to petrol prices. These high-octane apps may provide some help finding cheaper petrol: Local Gas, or Gas Prices. Use the Gas-Cash-Ometer to help calculate your fuel use and costs.

Playing sport of all types is a popular summertime activity, but if you can’t get to the track, pitch or field use PennantChase Sim league to join an online baseball team, keep track of your favourite cyclists’ twitter feed using Cycling Tweets, or monitor UFC fighter standings with UFC.

If a more active participant in sport, Cardio Workout for iPhone can help manage your running, or you may prefer using cityRUNNR. You may also wish to check the weather before heading out, so use this clever little web app, and if staying inside on a rainy day, playing Gold Nuggets can help you while away the time.
