The Shack Hearts Apps

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so I went on the hunt for some apps I hope you’ll love as much as I do. There’s a mix of entertainment and utility, plus a giant helping of tiny, cartoon hearts. The takeaway? Love can be fun, and it can be serious. The trick is finding someone with whom you can have serious fun. (Cheesy, but true.)  

wikiHow’s Love Survival Kit

 

Platform: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad

Price: Free


When you need reliable relationship advice, where do most people go? That’s right, the Internet. This app has all the suggestions and tips you need to deal with almost every situation, from breaking up over IM to proposing. It promises to be a great help on V-Day, and it might deserve a permanent place on your phone long after that.

 

Lovetricity (Pictured Above)

Platform: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad

Price: 99¢


I’ve got a thumb, you’ve got a thumb, this must be love! Maybe, but only Lovetricity can tell for sure. Just put your thumb on the screen, then convince someone else to put their thumb on the screen, and the rest is faux science. I tried it out on myself by using my own two thumbs and the response was, “devilish.” So it might be pretty accurate.

 

GO SMS – Valentine’s Theme

 

Platform: Android

Price: Free


GO SMS is a cool SMS/MMS alternative to the default Android SMS app. The interface is nice, intuitive and customizable. Plus, it has some fun themes, including one that will help get you in the mood for some romantic texting. Just let your fingers do the talking.

Spin the Coke

Platform: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad

Price: Free


The name of the app pretty much says it all. A flick of your finger will send the bottle spinning and the rest is up to you. The newest version includes options to access photos and Facebook Connect. Those features could come in handy when arguing over exactly whom the bottle landed on.

Love Poems

Platform: Android

Price: Free


I almost wrote a poem for this review, but didn’t. You’re welcome. This app includes thousands of poems and quotes that will yank at your heartstrings and make you yearn for the presence of your +1. You can rate, fav, share and even post your own. It doesn’t get much more romantic than that.
