By , Feb 12, 2011

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and hopefully you’ve thought of how you’re going to make your significant other feel special.

There are some great apps on the iPhone that can help you navigate through a successful Valentine’s Day. V-day can be especially stressful for us guys, but the iPhone is always there for moral support.

Here are 5 awesome iPhones apps for Valentine’s Day

1. Urbanspoon

Urbanspoon has been one of the most popular restaurant apps in the App Store for a long time. It’s a classic, and well deserving of its success.

Urbanspoon makes finding a place to eat a straightforward and simple process. What neighborhood, type of cuisine and price do you want? If you can’t make up your mind, a random selection will be made when you shake your iPhone.

You can also view reviews and share information with friends in the app. Picking a place to eat doesn’t have to be difficult anymore.

Urbanspoon is available for free in the App Store.

2. OpenTable

So, you’ve decided where you want to go eat, but you waited till the last minute and you’re not sure if you need a reservation or not. OpenTable allows you to easily reserve a table so that you and your date don’t end up sitting at the bar all night.

Set your day, time, and party size for an instant reservation at the establishment of your choice. Sometimes the restaurant’s menu is even available in the app so that you can get an idea of what you want to order. Just like Urbanspoon, you can filter by type of cuisine, etc. and read customer reviews.

Reservations can be the last thing a guy thinks about when planning a date. This handy iPhone app will make sure you’ve got reservations when you need them.

OpenTable is available for free in the App Store.

3, Fandango

Fandango is one of the premiere movie listing apps in the App Store. It’s my personal favorite for finding the movie I want to watch and seeing when and where it’s playing.

Fandango lets you sort titles with different qualifiers, like ‘Coming Soon,” “Top Box Office,” etc. You can read a movie’s description, see reviews, and watch the trailer inside the app.

Some cinemas even support mobile purchasing of tickets through Fandango. The app uses GPS to find the closest theatre and show you descending results for where and when a movie is showing.

Deciding on which movie to watch is a breeze with Fandango. The app is available for free in the App Store.

4. Pocketbooth

Nothing says romance like a photo booth. While it may sound cheesy to us guys, many girls love the concept of a photo booth session. On a date night, the photo booth experience can win you some major points with your girl.

There are some great apps for a photo booth experience on the iPhone. Thanks to the front-facing camera on the iPhone 4, photo booth-style photography is easier than ever.

Pocketbooth is one of the better photo booth-like apps in the App Store. You have a nice array of settings to tinker with, and your sharing options are quite robust.

If used properly, Pocketbooth should help you capture some great moments with your loved one. Pocketbooth is available for $0.99 in the App Store.

5. OkCupid

For those of you that don’t have a Valentine this year, OkCupid is a popular dating site with a nice iPhone app. People can have strong opinions about online dating, but people have had amazing success stories about meeting their significant other online.

If you’re alone this Valentine’s Day, cheer up! It’s ok to be single. But if you want to get back out there, the online dating scene is always waiting.

Don’t knock online dating till you’ve tried it. OkCupid is available for free in the App Store.

That was my list of “5 Awesome iPhone Apps for Valentine’s Day.” Hopefully you are prepared for a successful date night this V-day.
