Mobile apps are all the rage. If you’re anything like me, you even have an app for when Aunt Flow comes to visit.
I can’t live without my iPhone, and not just because of my Candy Crush addiction (soon to be replaced by a Flappy Bird one). With my downloaded apps, I create checklists, video chat with my sister and niece that live in Charlotte, and even wink and email men from online dating websites.
The HowAboutWe app is truly rocking my world right now.
With our dependency on apps, it makes sense that developers have created apps just for Valentine’s Day, and added features to existing apps due to Cupid. Here are the seven best phone apps that I found to ease you into Valentine’s Day.
Cupid’s Day Just Got Techy 1 of 8
What else will they think of? From dinner reservations to snapping photos with picturesque settings, here are the best apps for Valentine's Day.

What it does do is act like reverse karaoke, using its techy powers to spruce up your singing. Don't want to seduce your sweetie with a ballad? You can also rap.

Fingle 4 of 8
After your Valentine's serenade, you and your love may want to play. Try Fingle, a sexy game that will spice up your boudoir and then some. The goal of Fingle is to explore your partner by using your hands. It requires two players to drag up to five buttons to match targets ... and then, your fingers intertwine when you connect. Fingle is about building intimacy on the national holiday of love, or any day for that matter.
