Best Valentine's Day apps for couples: OpenTable, Avocado, ProFlowers, and more!

From finding the perfect flowers to dinner plans to the bedroom: The best iPhone apps to make Valentine's Day 2014 the best one ever!

Valentine's Day is almost upon us and for those out there with significant others, it's a time to enjoy each other and remember what brought you together in the first place. There are lots of apps to help you make this Valentine's Day the best one yet. Here are my favorites for Valentine's Day 2014!


Best Valentine's Day apps for couples: Avocado

Avocado is a social network for couples that's completely private and viewable by only the two of you. Invite your partner and then enjoy a digital place to share notes, photos, and more. Avocado comes standard with a calendar to help you remember important dates for the two of you while the list feature lets you create checklists of anything you want. Use them for vacation getaway ideas, date nights, and more.

If you want a private place to share thoughts and memories with your significant other, Avocado tops the list.


Best Valentine's Day apps for couples: Couple

Couple and Avocado are similar but unique by design. Both carry similar feature sets and give you a private place to communicate with your significant other through messages, photos, and videos. Avocado does planning and calendar views better while Couple does media streams and real time chat better. Both are great options so just choose the one that best suits you and your partner's style.

If you're looking for a private place to chat regularly with your partner, check out Couple.


Best Valentine's Day apps for couples: ProFlowers

ProFlowers is one of the easiest ways to send flowers to loved ones and comes from the same makers of Ink Cards. Just select from one of the beautiful arrangements they have available and enter in your info. Some orders even come with teddy bears, chocolates, and other items. Upon checkout you can set the delivery date as well so your flowers arrive just when you want them to. In comparison to other services, I've found ProFlowers to be extremely reasonable in price. They guarantee all flowers for seven days.

If flowers are on your Valentine's Day checklist this year, ProFlowers is the easiest way to acquire them.

Not all of us are great in the kitchen and if you're heading out for Valentine's Day, OpenTable can help you find the perfect spot. Not only that, most restaurants also let you book the table right through the app. Some of them even have viewable menus.

If you need to book a table for Valentine's Day dinner, get OpenTable.

  • @Ally Me and the misses have been using the Couple app regularly for about 7 months now. It has definitely added a "spice" to our relationship for sure. Its like a private getaway for us to discuss and share things that we never used to through iMessage. I reccomend it to all. :)

  • I think the app "Amare a couples game" deserves to be mentioned in this article.
