Best prom apps for iPhone: OpenTable

When it comes to booking a restaurant reservation right from your iPhone, it doesn't get any easier than OpenTable. Actually, if you've got an iPhone 4s or above, you can just ask Siri to find restaurants around you. As long as you've got OpenTable installed, you can use Siri to make a reservation in a few short taps.

The last thing you want is to not have a place to eat before heading to the prom. For that, there's OpenTable.


Best prom apps for iPhone: ASOS

One of the first things most people do, particularly the ladies, is look for the perfect prom dress. ASOS is a great shopping app that not only gives you competitive prices on your favorite designers, it lets you view each outfit right on the runway so you know exactly what you're getting. You can even complete you purchase right inside the ASOS app if you want. Guys aren't left out too, as there's an entire section just for them too. Simply fire up ASOS and search for suits, prom dresses, shoes, or any other accessory you want.

ASOS can have you on your way to finding the perfect outfit for prom in no time.


Best prom apps for iPhone: ProFlowers

No guy can head off to pick up his date without flowers or a corsage in hand. ProFlowers saves you the hassle of having to order from a local shop and having to go pick it up. Simply place an order, select the date you'd like the flowers to arrive at your doorstep, and pay through the app. That's it. As long as you place your order a few days ahead of time, you should be good. I've used ProFlowers numerous times and the results have always been fantastic. They're also a lot more reasonable than other online flower order services.

If you want great service and gorgeous flowers for your date delivered right to your doorstep, ProFlowers is the way to go.

Best prom apps for iPhone: Snatchat

While a lot of photos will be looked at years from now as great memories, there may be some you don't want making the rounds at school on Monday, or showing up on your Facebook profile when next you interview for a job. (Hey, we don't judge!) For times like that, there's Snapchat. Take a photo, set a timer, and send it off. The person on the receiving end can only view it for the allotted amount of time you specified and then it self destructs leaving no evidence of it to be found.

When it comes to selectively sharing silly or embarrassing pics that you don't want to haunt you forever, there's Snapchat


Best prom apps for iPhone: Songza

For most prom goers, the party is far from over after the dance ends. If you plan on having people over after prom, heading out for a drive with your date, or anything else, music is always a must. Songza is one of the best radio streaming services available that's not only free, but guaranteed to have a playlist or genre your date will approve of. If you need to play music for long periods of time to keep the party going, Songza won't disappoint there either.

If you need music to carry on the party after the dance, Songza will mix up something great that everybody loves.
