Love is lovelier with your apps around

Let your iPhone be your guide for a worry-free Valentine’s Day

Yes, it’s that time of the year again. Roses, chocolates, cuddly stuffed toys, and candle-lit dinners are all over town, blame it to our ancestors who have turned Valentine’s Day into a commercial, and not to mention nationwide, affair that needs to be celebrated. Malls and gift boutiques are starting to entertain more shoppers than usual. Restaurants and hotels are flooded with double the reservations. Movie houses and salons offer special promotions. It’s like Christmas all over again.

Looking for a worry-free Valentine’s date? No problem. Let your iPhone be your guide for a lovelier Valentine’s date minus the hustle and bustle that this brings. All you need is your trusty iPhone and our favorite iOS apps available on the Apple App Store, and you’re off to celebrate that special night without the wrinkles. After all, you deserve to be relaxed and at your best during the big day with the help of your V-Day apps:

Before the Date:

Click the City: The Click the City app gives you easy access to movie schedules, events, and restaurant details. This way, you can plan your Valentine itinerary ahead of time. Find the cinema closest to the restaurant you’re currently having dinner at so you don’t have to travel too far.

Waze: Traffic in the metro, is unpredictable (and more so when everybody’s out dating) and the last thing you want is to upset your date because you missed dinner or a movie date because of it. Waze app will help you check and plan the most traffic-free route to get to your celebration on time.

Groupon: Finding the perfect Valentine gift can be tricky. Avoid the hassle of long lines and gift-wrapping counters with Groupon, which provides daily deals and allows you to shop directly from your smartphone. You can look for something personal, with discounts up to 90% off. Pick from relaxing activities like a spa treat, or something more adventurous like trekking or mountaineering.

Just Wink: Sick of all the generic Hallmark cards at bookstore? No problem. Just Wink has an array of unique, romantic, funny cards for you to personalize. You can e-mail, text, tweet, or upload your Just Wink card on Facebook. After all, everything has gone high-tech and so should you.

Big Oven: During Valentines, dinner reservations are such a chore, and traversing through an overly-booked restaurant with too many couples can be a problem. Big Oven has over 250,000 recipes with grocery planning lists to help you pick the perfect meal, shop for it, and whip it up from scratch as if you were your lover’s ultimate Masterchef. Sweet!

PinoyNews: Avoid awkward pauses during conversations by beefing up on your current affairs. Knowledge is power, and you can be powerful and attractive if you know a little bit of everything that’s happening around you. PinoyNews links you to all the biggest sources of Filipino news so you can quickly and efficiently update yourself with the latest goings-on in the country.

During the Date:

8Tracks: Set the mood, in the car or at home with 8tracks, a free internet radio app. You can customize your playlists to whatever suits your fancy for the evening. Whatever your plan is for that special night, 8tracks will provide you the background music that will make the date even more memorable.

Heartbooth: What’s a great date if you can’t brag about it on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter? Of course you want to share what makes your V-date special with your friends, and yes, the rest of the world. Heartbooth helps you organize your photos and shape them into the ultimate symbol of love – a heart.

After the Date:

Fingle: Looking for an excuse to get “closer” with your date? Try Fingle. According to Touch Arcade, Fingle is a finger-twister game with one purpose: flirtation. A cheesy soundtrack, suggestive backdrops and more than a few double entendres might be enough, but Fingle doesn’t settle for enough. Your fingers will stroke hers, or his.  Your call what comes next.

Mixology Drink & Cocktail Recipes: As the evening winds down you and your date may want a nightcap. Impress your date with your new bartending prowess and use the Mixology Drink & Cocktail recipes. The app has thousands of recipes; broken down into categories. Can’t decide what to make? Try the random drink finder function within the app and let Mixology pick your penchant for the evening.

Now that you have your apps ready for the big V-Day, it’s time to get yourself a mobile internet plan that will give you an equally worry-free access. Stay online longer without having to pay more with Globe PowerSurf, a mobile surfing plan that gives subscribers bulk megabytes (MB) of mobile data, consumable per kilobyte (KB).
