Washington, Feb 12 (ANI): Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and thanks to the advent of the iPhone and other smart phone technology, finding and staying in love has become easier.

“Never before in the history of humanity has it been this easy to connect with people live,” Discovery News quoted Alan Warms, the CEO of Appolicious., a Chicago, IL-based firm that reviews and rates iPhone applications, as saying.

“It’s the opposite of a lot of the early criticism about the Internet. People aren’t holing up inside their bedrooms with pajamas. The iPhone turns that on its head. For the first time, you can meet people easier than ever before in the real world, which is exciting and great,” he added.

Warms, along with Appolicious managing editor Brad Spirrison and Best iPhone Apps author Josh Clark, has picked their favourite iPhone apps to create the perfect Valentine’s Day.

Top 5 Valentine’s Day iPhone Apps

1. Foursquare

“Few current applications have the same buzz attached to foursquare. Available in iPhone, Blackberry, Palm and Android versions, this app promises to help you discover new people and places in your city.

The app uses smart phones’ location detection technology to “check in” at certain places — bars, coffee shops, restaurants parks, etc. — and connect with other app users in these locations.”

2. Epicurious

“Some say the way to a person’s heart is through his or her stomach. The tasty recipes of Conde Nast publications including Gourmet and Bon Appetit are easily accessible with the Epicurious app, a mobile version of the Web site of the same name.

Users can search through more than 30,000 food and drink recipes, sorting by main ingredient and type of dish (party snacks, healthy options, etc.). From there, they’re able to create grocery lists, e-mail recipes and lists to friends and use it as a read-along companion in the kitchen.”

3. Black Book

“Black books aren’t a thing of the past. They’ve just become sleeker, digital-based and password-protected. Vurgood Applications developed the Black Book app, which launched in Fall 2008 and boasts more than 250,000 users.

The app allows users to add names, addresses, phone numbers and even photos for past and future dates, and they can tag the best dates for future reference and easy sorting.”

4. Sweethearts

“New England Confectionery Company’s Sweethearts app lets users send sugary gifts to their significant other. Simply type a message onto the screen, and it appears on the candy heart. Users can then send the creation through e-mail or upload it through Twitter to share their message with that special someone.”

5. Someecards

“Perhaps best recognized as a notable Facebook trend, Someecards are a less-traditional way to show that special someone you care.

A companion to the popular Web site, the Someecards app launched in late 2009, and offers more than 3,000 cards for every occasion and holiday.

Boasting phrases like “I’m so grateful Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday so I don’t have to watch everyone’s flowers being delivered at work” and “You make me feel like a pudgy, naked, winged child has shot an arrow into my chest cavity,” these Valentine’s snarky e-cards are sure to produce a smile and a laugh. Users are able to then send the cards through e-mail to anyone in their phone’s address book.” (ANI)
