Warmer weather makes us want to get out and dine with friends, visit family, take some fun day trips. But where to start? Here are four hot apps that go beyond Yelp-like reviews and make meet-ups more fun and interesting.

Superb, an intent-based social networking app from the team of Grubwithus, who know all about getting people to connect offline. Easily upload your recommendations with left swipes and discover what friends and people with similar interests are passionate about. Superb also lets you chat with them to organize a get-together at a hidden gem of a restaurant, plan a hiking trip, explore a little-known spot.

Sosh is a curated list of what to do nearby. Users can now learn about and buy tickets to events from vendors, merchants and artisans.

Find out what's hot in the dining scene with Chefs Feed, which lets you browse reviews written by chefs about great signature dishes by their colleagues as well as learn where chefs prefer to eat.

Timbre helps you locate venues with the best live performances in any city. Sample an audio of the performer's hits and buy tickets via the app if you like the sound.
