7 Valentine's Day Apps You Need To Know About

Valentine’s Day is on the horizon as well as all the romance, fun and money making that goes with it. Frankly, we’ve come a long way from the simple days of a card and some flowers and it seems that a lot of our romantic inclinations and wishes have taken a digital turn. 

There are all sorts of apps and tech out there nowadays for Valentines and we thought it would be only right to shed light on this with the big day coming up.


For the true romantics among us, Couple may seem like the digital equivalent of a warm hug. For others, let’s just be polite and say maybe not. The app, allows you to share messages and video with your partner alone in an intimate manner whether they’re in the living room or Lebanon. There is even the option to touch thump prints on the same part of the screen, known as a ‘Thumbkiss’.

Fix a Fight

Of course, a relationship can’t be all ‘thumbkisses’ there has to be some friction and this app is a pragmatic one. Fix a Fight does exactly as it suggests and provides couples with free therapy in a step by step manner. It even uses the voice of a marital therapist to calm couples down. 


Avocado allows you to have a shared place for all your shared images, videos and messages. It permits couples the ability to hug via holding their handset up to their chests. In addition, there’s even an option to receive notifications when your partner’s battery is dying. They’ll never have an excuse for not writing back again. 

Simply Us

There’s nothing as annoying as being double booked because your partner has pencilled you in for something, while you have done the same for another. Simply Us allows couples to sync calendars and shopping lists, as well as message privately. It’s a great app for the organised couples among us and one we can certainly see appealing to the practical.


It’s always nice going to the cinema with someone else. This app doesn’t completely make that a reality, but it will sync two people’s videos when watching a funny clip or show via laptop or phone allowing them to synchronise. No more worries about someone getting to the funny bit of the video first again.


It seems that the gamification of love has begun and Kouply is right at the centre of it. The app turns your relationship into a game of sorts by sending your significant other points every time they do something you appreciate. The member of the couple who gets the most points wins, of course. It’s a weird way to encourage kindness but we can certainly see it working for some. 


Simply, add your significant other’s phone number into the app and then when you press the icon it’ll call them straight away. It means there’ll never be need again to navigate the screen with three button presses to call your wife, girlfriend or lover. You can now with one click of a little red heart shaped icon. We live in wonderful times.

These are just some of the apps for download that could make your Valentines that little bit more special.

The Smartphone Sins Everyone Commits

Smartphones, smartphones, smartphones; they’re everywhere and though many of us claim to be smartphone experts with great mobile phone etiquette, there are some smartphone sins everyone commits. 

Smartphone sins are the little behaviours that many of us are guilty of and though they are things we all know we shouldn’t do, does that stop us? No. Unfortunately the majority of us commit smartphone sins on a daily basis and often we don’t even realise we are doing it until someone points it out.

We’ve compiled some of the top smartphone sins that everyone commits, see how many you are guilty of.

Smartphone Sins: Are You Guilty?

  1. Forgetting to charge your smartphone - Ironically, smartphone batteries are one of the top complaints made by users and yet we have all been caught with a battery nearing the dreaded 5%. Forgetting to charge your smartphone is not only annoying to you, but also to those trying to get hold of you. The key benefit of a mobile phone is that people can be contacted in an emergency though, with a dead battery, that isn’t possible. Remember to charge your smartphone or invest in a portable charger for emergencies.
  2. Spending too much time on your smartphone – Often associated with being addicted to your smartphone. This occurs when you are paying attention to your phone instead of those around you, even when you’re out to dinner it is not uncommon to see a table full of people, who are meant to be socialising, all staring at their mobile phones. Putting your smartphone down won’t be the end of the world and it will allow you to pay attention to others without distractions.
  3. Constantly updating social media and WhatsApp - With social media and instant messaging having a new lease of life over recent years - say goodbye to MSN messenger and MySpace and hello to WhatsApp and Facebook - many of us are guilty of updating people throughout the day of everything we are up to. Save updates and messages for important purposes and things you are excited to share, and stay away from telling everyone what you had for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  4. Ignoring calls and texts - Mobile phones began as a way to call and message others whilst on the move, however, it seems many people have forgotten that. We are all guilty of reading a message or a call and ignoring them, planning to get back to them at a later date. Then, we forget. Staying on top of messages and call is one of the pillars of smartphone etiquette and replying to people is key.  
  5. Always looking for an upgrade - It seems that every other week someone is mentioning the brand new, must-have smartphone and without fail we look at our own models and wish it was time to upgrade. Upgrades come around quicker than you expect and owning the next big smartphone is unlikely to give you many more features than you already have. Technology has come a long way since mobile phones began, so use the model you have to its optimum.

The smartphone sins everyone commits are never going to go away, but by taking a little time to try to avoid them you may find you get the most out of your smartphone and are able to really appreciate it’s features.
