Since it's summer, let's hope you're not sitting around the house, watching TV all day and night. If you're out and about, however, it's easy to miss your favorite shows--particularly sporting events you want to see live, such as Major League Baseball games as the pennant races heat up, and the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

The solution is SlingPlayer for iPad, a $30 app that works in conjunction with Sling Media's Slingbox (Solo or Pro-HD) device to play your favorite live and recorded TV shows on your slate. SlingPlayer works with cable and satellite set-top boxes, Tivo and Apple TV devices, and even home security cameras.

re: 10 Great Summer iPad Apps
Another thing to remember when you are using your iPad for summer activities is that when the heat is out and you are being more active, that protecting your device is really quite important as well. I cannot even tell you how many times I have felt like my device was in danger either because the kids were going wild, the weather changed, or some other unforeseen circumstance arose. All of these apps are great, but I would also enjoy having a device that works. There a few options that I like including a company called Maroo that is all about protecting the device from bumps and bruises. Feel free to check out what I am talking about....
