There are those that live for Valentine’s Day, and those that dread the 44 days of the year leading up to it. Whichever way you lean, there are many romantic and love-themed iPhone apps to help you get through the sweetest day of the year. Here are some lovely games and apps to profess your admiration for this year’s day of love.
Lovely games for Valentine’s Day enjoyment
Are you a sucker for an old black-and-white romance film or do you totally swoon for a Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy? Then check out the Scene It? Romance app ($1.99) for hours of dreamy trivia to keep you busy long past Valentine’s Day. Play against your friend or significant other in the funny “Lover’s Quarrel” multiplayer mode.
If you are alone for Valentine’s Day and have a thing for vampires, check out the A Vampire Romance app ($2.99). You will trek across Paris as an art student playing find-the-object games and pursuing forbidden love with a hot Parisian vampire at the same time. It is kind of corny, but perfect to celebrate a lonely day of love. If you love the Twilight movies, you will love this romantic app.
It’s like Twister for your fingers and it’s free. The FingerMingle Valentine’s Edition app is a fun way to break the ice on a Valentine’s Day blind date. You and your date must connect the hearts with twists and bends of your fingers complete with background music.
"Show them you love them" apps
Paper cards are so over. Demonstrate your love online for all to see with the Build-a-Card: Cupid Edition app (99 cents). Build a customized Valentine’s Day card with personal photos and share it with family, friends or your sweetie on Facebook, Twitter and via email.
The other day at work my colleagues and I were having a spirited conversation about the difference between girls who want a compliment, and girls who would rather you give them a cookie. Needless to say, I’m a cookie kind of gal. If you have a cookie gal (bonus if she was a former Girl Scout), use the free Girl Scout Cookie Locator app and present her with a clever package of Thin Mints instead of the typical Valentine’s Day chocolate box.
Profess your love with the help of Shakespeare. Simply download the free Shakespeare in Bits: Romeo & Juliet LITE app and brush up on your love lines. Why not text her some sweet little Shakespearean nothings throughout the day, after all, Valentine’s Day is on a working Monday this year. If you don’t like to read, never fear, the app includes accompanying video.
Need to set the mood on the go? The free Set the Mood: A toolkit for love birds app helps you create a romantic atmosphere with a mobile fire complete with wine glasses, personal photo and custom song selection. This app is perfect for cuddling in the car at your favorite spot. Warning: If your date isn’t a digital boy or girl, this might be super cheesy to them
