Similar to New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays where people want everything to be perfect. However, putting so much pressure on perfection can lead to some major let downs, making it a memorable night for all the wrong reasons. Fortunately, there are a ton of apps available to make February 14 as stress-free — and bearable — as possible.
Helpful Romantic – The Romantic Idea App
While the Helpful Romantic app isn’t specific to Valentine’s Day, it’s a great source of information for lovers looking for romantic ideas specific to their partners. Users create a profile for their significant other, detailing his or her favorite hobbies, foods, shops, songs and more. Once the profile is complete, the app generates a list of ideas based on the given information. It includes helpful symbols that indicate the amount of effort needed to complete each task, as well as how much it will cost. Users are able to browse more than 100 ideas to find the perfect plan that won’t break the bank.
