Essential Valentine's apps for your Note II

Everyone knows that the secret of a strong relationship is communication. So it should be no surprise to find a smartphone has all the answers when it comes to love.

Whether you’re single or a smug married, the GALAXY Note II will be your wingman as you woo you way through Valentine’s Day. Here’s how…

Looking for love: five great dating apps to try

Zoosk

Free

Describing itself as “the romantic social network”, Zoosk’s Android app lets you sign-in with a Facebook account or create a new ID in a few seconds.

Once in, you can add testimonials from your Facebook friends and progress up the site’s popularity rankings by playing games. Instant chat and sending initial emails is only available if you pay for a subscription, but replying to received messages is free to everyone.

Plenty Of Fish

Free

If the biggest problem with your love life is the lack of fish, this could be the site for you. Its 55 million members are packed in like sardines, so you’re bound to swim into someone good, and it’s entirely free with no subscription charges.

The ‘Locals’ section lets you see who’s nearby, and includes details of events in your area. A great entry-level option if you’re new to online dating.

OkCupid

Free

When even Cupid swaps his arrows for an app, it has to be time to get online. Packed full of personality tests and quirky questions set by other members, OKCupid is sure to keep you entertained as it seeks to pair you off with likeminded people.

Most basic features are free, including messaging, but paying members are rewarded with an ad-free experience, a bigger inbox and handy advanced search options.

Lovestruck

Free

Taking a professional approach to the no-nonsense business of dating, Lovestruck bases its matches around your workplace and boasts of its “selective” attitude to members.

Setting your status to “Free for lunch” or “Free tonight” gives proceedings a spontaneity suited to an app, and is well-suited to anyone who wants to date, but doesn’t want it to dictate their diary. Subscription fees unlock messaging functionality, and access to singles events.

BeNaughty

Free

Where other apps have options for finding everything from “friends” to “marriage”, BeNaughty sets its sights firmly on fun.

With the chance to flirt with people from around the world in cheeky chat rooms, or to find naughtiness nearer to home, this is not an app for the faint-hearted or – obviously – under-18s. Subscription rates include automatic rebilling, so be sure to cancel when you’ve had your fill.

 

All loved up: five essential apps for Valentines 

Interflora

Free

Promising same-day delivery “almost anywhere in the UK” for orders placed before 3pm, Interflora’s Android app is packed full of hi-res images so you can pick the perfect flowers for your Valentine without having to leave home in a blind, last-minute panic.

Whether you do that to up the element of surprise, or because you’re incredibly lazy is, of course, entirely a matter of debate for you and your partner.

Bookatable

Free

There’s no point trying to stroll into a restaurant without a reservation on Valentine’s Day, so check out this app to avoid spending the big day with a Coke and a KFC bucket.

Search by name or location to get star ratings, reviews and price info, and to make reservations online or over the phone. The free app also includes top offers near you, making it ideal for cheapskates, too!

Expedia Hotels & Flights

Free

Treat your loved one to a romantic break at home or abroad with this handy app combining hotel and flight booking.

Exclusive deals make glamorous getaways a realistic possibility, and you can book last-minute to escape that freezing February feeling, or way in advance, to extend your Valentine’s Day into a perfect summer holiday. Even if you’ve broken up by then, it might be worth it just to escape the country.

Moonpig

Free

If you make just one Valentine’s gesture, make it a Valentine’s card. If you make several… Well, try not to make them all cards to different people.

Like its parent website, the Moonpig app lets you make personalised cards using your own text, photos and even videos filmed using your Note II. Cards are sent by first class post or special delivery, and are guaranteed to raise a smile.

Kindle

Free

Is that the complete works of Jane Austen in your pocket, or…? Fan the flames of romance with the huge range of free classics available for the Kindle Android app.

From Pride and Prejudice to Shakespeare’s sonnets, nothing beats a well-chosen word on Valentine’s Day. Serenade your partner with love poems, or simply memorise a few choice quotes when no one’s looking to melt the heart of your literary love.
