With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, the stress can begin to add up. If you’re in a relationship, there’s pressure to have the perfect day, and if you’re single, well, there’s pressure to not be. What should you do for a date? Where should you drown your dating sorrows? How do you find the perfect match?

But have no fear! Whether you’re married, single, or somewhere in between, there’s an app for that. Here are the top 5 apps to help you have a successful Valentine’s Day.


iPad / $1.99

A two-player puzzle game that involves dragging colors onto a target, Fingle “makes it impossible to avoid contact, creating intimate moments with intertwined hands.” It’s like Twister for the iPad, which you can play anytime, anywhere. Bust this app out to start your romantic evening or with friends at a Valentine’s Day gathering.

Helpful Romantic

iPhone, iPod touch, iPad / $0.99

If you’re looking for something original and fun to do with your partner on Valentine’s Day, then look no further than this app. It generates romantic ideas that are uniquely curated, based on your significant other’s personality. It also generates gift ideas and lets you record list of traits, such as clothing size, that are useful when choosing gifts.

Kiss ‘N Booth

Android 1.6 and up / Free

Have you ever wondered how your kissing skills rank? With this app, all you have to do is smooch the screen for a kiss rating. Then you can get ready to pucker up for Valentine’s Day.

Love Poem Generator

Android 2.2 and up / Free

Not much of a wordsmith? Get this app, and harness the power of Shakespeare. Input some starting information (like your parnter’s name and gender), and the poem generator creates “silly and beautiful poems” that will be sure to woo your valentine. Or at least, be good for a laugh.

Girlfriend Keeper

iPhone / 0.99

If you have a habit of forgetting your girlfriend’s birthday, your anniversary, or not texting enough, then this app just might save your relationship. It allows you to set up automated text messages or emails to your girlfriend with customizable input like her name, birthday, and “relationship seriousness.” Then it’ll send charming messages like, “Diana, your birthday is in 136 days. Maybe I will get you something green like your eyes. –Evan”
