How Technology Can Save Your Valentine's Day


Running Low on Date Ideas?

February 14For those looking for a great Valentine’s for their significant other, why not let technology lend you a helping hand. One of the best brainstorming platforms is Pinterest. Here, people from all over the world post ideas for topics such as Valentine’s Day date ideas as well as gifts. For those people who “just aren’t that creative,” you no longer have an excuse.  You can now gather ideas from all over the world, filter, and choose which you like best. With something like Pinterest, you can have the best Valentine’s Day possible.

For those who love taking photos, Instagram is a well-known application that allows you to post and share photos to your profile for others to see.  However, as of last year, Instagram has a sister application called Lovestagram. Lovestagram creates a slideshow of all Instagram photos shared between you and your special someone. All you do is sign in through your Instagram account and enter the username of your significant other. Two of the frames place your photos in a still frame you can click through and one places all photos in one frame. For now, all of the frames are love themed.


Are You a Last Minute Person?

NewspaperFor those who let the holiday sneak up on them, don’t worry. There is a way to help prepare for the eleventh hour. With these tools at your disposal, you’ll look like a Valentine’s Day genius.

If you forget to check the movies beforehand, download the Movies by Flixter (or something similar) app to your smart phone. Apps such as Flixter will check local theatres for movie times thus making you seem that much smoother.

Do you need to make a last minute reservation? While this is not recommended since it is so difficult to find an open table on Valentine’s Day, there is an app that can help. With OpenTable, you can make reservations right from your phone. You can even sort through cuisines as well as price ranges.

For desert, check out Find Chocolate. This little app helps you find the nearest chocolate shop for that special someone.
