The quotes are also broken up into categories such as Cartoon, Cute, Engagement, Devotion, etc so you can find the quote that best applies to your situation or style. It’s definitely cheesy but it gets the job done and a few of them are pretty clever.

OpenTable is a fun application that allows you to book tables at various restaurants.

In most cases, OpenTable will work but if you’re planning something a little more ridiculous then you might need an application that covers more than just dinner plans. TripAdvisor has a ton of information on restaurants, hotels, flights, and all kinds of other accommodations, travel, and entertainment information. Maybe you’re popping into the big city for the weekend or taking a weekend trip somewhere else. In either case, having this app around can help you find where the good stuff is.

Last on our list this year is Valentines Day Special. This is kind of a one-stop-shop for Valentine’s Day themed stuff if you don’t feel like downloading individual apps to do it. There’s a love tester, romantic SMS messages you can copy/paste, recipes, horoscopes, activities, and there are even tips for single people. Given that this event is but one day a year, it makes sense to put all of this information in one place so you can easily find it which is why this is such a fun little app. It’s also entirely free.
