Top 5 Apps for Valentines Day
Love is in the app…at least if you have the right ones to work with. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and your phone or tablet is one of the best ways to make it a memorable one thanks to the top five apps we’ve collected here.
One of the best (and most rewarding) ways to make sure you and your sweetie will have a place to dine on Valentine’s is through the original table-booking social network, Open Table. This app, available for iOS and Android, allows you to set your location, the time of your reservation, your budget, and the type of food you’re looking for. You can set the number of people you need a reservation for, but more than two might be a bit racy for Valentines Day.
As you book tables with Open Table you’ll earn points which can be exchanged for gift certificates – that’s a great way to make your date a success even after the fact.
We all want a peek at the future, and knowing what love holds for us could mean for a more romantic evening and a more romantic year. This app gives you the inside scoop on your loved one’s thoughts by reading their path in the stars. Either that or it’ll give you something funny to talk about over dinner with how way off it is. Enter your birthday and get a customized love horoscope that will tell you if your chances are good. Just don’t blame us if it’s contradicted by your fortune cookie.
Finding a fun way to connect with the people you love is easy when you have the right app, and it’s a whole lot less in the way of calories than candy. The Valentine’s Day Photo Frame app lets you shoot a selfie or take your favourite photo and add a beautiful themed frame around it, before sending or sharing it via text, iMessage, or social media. It’s a wonderful way to say “I love you” without breaking the bank or giving anyone sugar shock.
This one’s for the Android lovers out there: Couple is an app that lets you share all of those amazing, tender, lovey-dovey moments like photos of dates, and tender poems to each other…all without clogging up your friend’s Facebook feeds. This exclusive mini social network is just for two, allowing you to post ’til your heart’s content without making enemies of your friends.
Available for iOS and Android, Tinder’s the app that might make dinner for one into dinner for two on Valentine’s. Connect it with your Facebook profile or log in with your own account, then get to finding a match. With Tinder you can swipe right if you like the profile you’re viewing, left to pass, and up to “Super Match” if you think you’ve found true love. If they like you back you’ll get a chance to chat and see if romance is in the cards. And when you’ve got your date booked, go find a table with OpenTable – everything’s coming full circle!
