Did you know that St Valentine’s Day dates back to the Roman fertility festival of Lupercalia in which young men competed in a lottery of sorts for the affections of a young woman? Now it’s all Hallmark cards and chocolates…how times have changed. Deciding which iPhone apps to go for on Valentine’s Day can be just as random a picking, so that’s why we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 iPhone apps for Valentine’s Day; this is definitely one for the lovebirds!
Finding out what women want can be tough; even Mel Gibson struggled and he seems to think of himself as ‘God’s Gift’ (literally at times!). This cutesy little platform game follows a boy who wants to prove that girls can be happy provided that they get the perfect gift, which occasionally includes carrying the moon on a stick. We’ve all been there…

The irony of having to buy an iPhone app in order for it to tell you a ‘creative idea’ is not wasted on me, however, when it’s this close to Valentine’s Day originality goes out of the window. From showing you how to personalize M&Ms to creating a romantic crossword, this cheesy app can get the tardy present buyer out of a lot of trouble.
3. Valentine’s Day Mail Cards for Love Greetings and Invitations
As they say, you can’t re-read a phone call, so use you iPhone for something with a little more longevity and send a special love postcard to your sweetheart without having to bother schlepping all the way to the Post Office.
Wherever you are in the world, it’s always good to know of a decent place to eat; this is never truer than on February 14th, when your date will be expecting something sublime and will be fairly justifiably disappointed with a KFC bucket and an apologetic grin. Use Urbanspoon to discover and compare local eateries in your area, using its reviews to see where the best place is to treat your loved one.
Not all of us can celebrate on Valentine’s Day; a large proportion of the population will see the day as a cruel invention devised by those in happy relationships to make them feel even lonelier. Well good news! You don’t need a real-life girlfriend in order to take part in Valentine’s Day, just download My Virtual Girlfriend and have a fun relationship without all the hassle! And before you cry “sexism” girls, there’s My Virtual Boyfriend for any techie spinsters out there. If only the users of both apps could be introduced to each other somehow…is anyone else thinking of an iPhoneAppCafe ‘Love Forum’?!
As the ‘Walrus of Love’ Barry White proved, getting the right mood for love can be as easy as flicking on the stereo; if you want to get it on then you’ll need the right kind of music and this can be found by tuning into Valentine RADIO, where you’ll find 40 radio stations that will pump out sweet, soulful grooves all night long.
Well, there we have it my lovely lovebirds; we wish you all a lovely Valentine’s Day and for anybody who doesn’t have that special somebody to share your innermost feelings with…well, let’s hope that the video below cheers you up.
