Ladies, football season is over, and it’s time to drag your TV loving, XBOX addicted man out of the house. But until baseball season starts, how do you get him to leave the comfort of his Sunday shorts and oversized couch?

Find Craft Beer ($0.99)

Did you say craft beer? Surely if anything can get your man out for a day of shopping at Home Depot and the like, it’s a frosty, tall draft of craft beer. The Find Craft Beer app will point you in the direction of the closest brew pub. Search by distance, ratings and read reviews to find you and your man’s perfect pint.

Push-Up Wars (Free)

If your man has an enviable pair of pectorals, recruit him to hit the gym with you and then set him free to pump up his “pecs” while you enjoy yoga class. Then, when you are limber and he is tight, record his record setting push-up count with the Push-Up Wars app. His push-up count is sent to Facebook so he can compete against his friends, while working out with you… genius! He can even earn military ranks and represent his country on the leaderboard.

Free Speedometer (Free)

Is your man more of a speed demon than a gym rat? Hit the city streets or park trails with the Free Speedometer app and challenge your man to some friendly sprints on foot or via bike. A little friendly competition in a relationship is good, just at least let him win once.

Amble with Louis Vuitton (Free)

Amp up your weekend explorations and keep track of memories with the free Amble with Louis Vuitton app. Check out the pre-made amble “City Guides” if you are in a big city, or simply create your own amble using this travel app. It is probably one of the only times he will hear “Louis Vuitton” and “free” in the same sentence, so he will be stoked to travel to a new place and check out this savvy app with you.

Rogue Traveler (Free)

Have some airline miles to spare? Grab a couple of last minute flights and hit San Diego for the weekend—it is beautiful there in the spring. Explore the area with the free Rogue Traveler San Diego app, which promises an underground look at local experiences unlike the typical travel app. Then, as Rogue Traveler rolls out iPhone apps for new cities to explore (the developer note teases future apps for New York City and other markets), you can plan weekend getaways with your man.
