So here are 10 particularly hot apps during the summer of 2013.

The app version of the popular website, IFTTT (If This, Then That) automates your Internet experience by creating “recipes” for activity. For example, you can set it up like so: If THIS (you are tagged in a Facebook photo) then THAT(send the photo to your Dropbox file).

2. Vine
