So ‘APP’-y Together!By Tatin Yang
Philippine Daily Inquirer
These cute (and sappy) apps will help celebrate your awesome twosome in time for Valentine’s Day.
Kakao Talk (Free, iOS/Android)
Exchange sweet nothings with your significant other using cutesy animation and add-on emoticon packs. The messenger app also includes voice messaging and enables Internet calls as well.
LoveByte (Free, iOS)
This app wants to provide couples with a private space for sharing, communicating and remembering relationship milestones. It comes with nice touches like the ability to send scratch cards which one can use to send a virtual surprise or invitation, and of course, cutesy boy-girl emoticons.
SoulMate (Couple Solo Essential App) (Free, iOS)
This app aims to strengthen the relationship between couples through “synchronized activities,” shared albums, diary and mini games. The app protects your data with advanced encryption. But even single folks can download this app to help them find their nearest soulmate (you already have one thing in common: the app!) Cynical? Download the app if only to appreciate the wonderful graphics.
ValentineApp (Free, iOS)
This handy helper contains multiple mini apps: a love camera to document your night in or out with cheesy heart frames, a romantic playlist to set the mood through music, romantic movie suggestions, love poems, activity suggestions and a flower guide complete with each flower’s secret meaning, so you don’t accidentally send her an “I’m sorry you’re dead” bouquet.
Epicurious (Free, iOS)
If you’re planning to DIY your Valentine’s dinner, make sure to download this app which contains thousands of recipes. It’s got you covered from appetizer to dessert. And cocktails, too.
Love Measurement Camera (Free, iOS)
Your smartphone is probably your best friend, so why not give it the privilege of judging your current relationship? The app measures your compatibility and “love measurement score” by taking your photos and measuring your love via your looks.
301 Date Ideas (Free, iOS)
Looking for something creative to do? Download this app for 301 ideas. You can even try out all 301 ideas this year just for fun! And not all of the dates cost money, so your wallet can breathe a sigh of relief.
Partner Quiz (Free, iOS)
Find out just how well you know each other with this partner quiz. Make sure to study in advance so the game ends up being fun and not the precursor to a major fight.
Truth or Dare Party (Free, iOS)
Planning to stay in to avoid bad traffic and cheesy prix fixe menus? Spice up your stay-in date by downloading this truth or dare app (Or try something racier; the AppStore’s got plenty of apps that’ll make “Fifty Shades of Grey” look like a badly-written textbook).
Couple Wallpaper (Free, iOS)
Turn your smartphones into the ultimate declaration of your coupledom by creating complementary wallpapers of each other. It’s the 21st century equivalent of wearing matching T-shirts while out at the mall!
