It's that time of year again, when love gets an official holiday for couples to shower each other with gifts in the form of chocolates in heart-shaped boxes, sappy and cliché greeting cards and overpriced meals at dimly-lit restaurants, among other things.
Valentine's Day can be a lot of fun, but it can also be a lot of work, especially for those who bear the bulk of Cupid's burden. Here are 5 Android apps that ought to make things easier, whether you're male or female; madly in love or deeply in like; part of a couple or single.
1. Love Poems for Android
Are you full of love and adoration for your girlfriend or boyfriend, husband or wife, but can't quite put those feelings into words? No worries, the Love Poems for Android app has you covered with more than 600 poems from "famous" poets. The poems' text can be customized with different fonts and colors. With a little help from Love Poems for Android you'll be reciting the perfect verse to your Sweetheart on Valentine's Day (you can also e-mail or text that perfect prose).
2. Valentine's Day Fun Facts for Android
Valentine's Day is all about surprising and impressing your loved one. Sure, that often means springing flowers or a surprise dinner on him or her, but why not try something a little less traditional this year? The Valentine's Day Fun Facts for Android app is packed with interesting facts and amusing tidbits about Valentine's Day and its history. And you're guaranteed to learn something about the romantic holiday that you can then share with your significant other, to spark a fresh conversation or just get a laugh.
3. Love Frames for Valentine for Android
Nothin' says lovin' like a corny…I mean romantic, Valentine's-Day-themed photo frame! Snap a bunch of images while you're at dinner, the movies or on a moon-lit stroll through the park. Then import them into the Love Frames for Valentine app, and let the good times roll. The software lets you pick from a variety of amusing, Valentine's-Day-themed photo frames and helps create images you won't soon forget -- or likely share with anyone other than your Valentine.
4. Find Chocolate! for Android
Valentine's Day and chocolate go together like Christmas and gifts, Halloween and costumes. But running to the drug store to pick up one of those heart-shaped, cardboard boxes of candy just doesn't cut it in anymore -- Sorry, Mr. Stover. Thanks to the Find Chocolate! Android app, locating the best gourmet chocolates and chocolatiers in your area is as easy as firing up the app and letting it find your location. The software then delivers a list of the best nearby chocolate shops, along with addresses, Websites and other contact information. You can also find user ratings and photos to help you make the best possible choice. Mmmmm. Gourmet chocolate.
5. Valentine's Scanner
The least useful of the applications included in this post, Valentine's Scanner for Android, may also be the most fun. You and your loved one simply place an index finger on the app's designated "scanner spots," wait for it to "analyze" the reading, and then you receive a compatibility ranking and description. I tried this app with a few different people and got different results each time, though our compatibility was always relatively high. Something tells me the app doesn't deliver too many low ratings, either. But that's okay with me. The scanner is rather entertaining. But be forewarned: Those who blatantly seek trouble very often find it.
