But we’re not just blowing smoke here! If you’d like to view our entire roundup of some of the best Valentine’s Day-themed applications, you need only to slide on down below the break and get cracking. Starting with:
1. Valentine Cam – Free
We’ll swing this free application your way with a few case parameters.

2. Boy Loves Girl – $0.99

3. ScrapPad – Free
This app puts a more traditional spin on Valentine’s Day, allowing you to take those photos that you snap on your iPhone and turn them into some seriously good scrapbooking pages—and all from the same device!

4. Valentine Funny Jokes – $0.99
Let’s face it: First dates on Valentines Day are potentially the worst around. Why? Because with such high expectations for the day itself, it’s easy to disappoint—from both sides of the table. This is why you should always come prepared. Need some help in the jokes department? Then load up this app, learn a few (or have it on hand) and get to cracking! Results not guaranteed.

7. iPropose – $0.99
We have to admit, this is one of those applications that makes us happy to own an iPhone in the first place. It’s simple, it’s basic, and it’s absolutely marvelous. Essentially, the app encourages you to finally buckle down and pop the question to that special someone. Get on one knee, hold out that gorgeous bit of Apple engineering, and ask them to press “yes” or “no.” It’s that simple!
8. Valentine Radio – Free
Need a little bit of smooth music to put on the radio? Not sure what exactly to go with? Why bother picking, when you can just let Valentine RADIO do all of the work for you? This free app makes it quick and easy to get just the right mood going for your holiday. No effort required, and the end results are pitch perfect every time. Sounds like a bargain to us!
9. Fandango – Free
We’ve got a slightly more practical entry here. It’s called Fandango, and we’re almost positive you’ve heard of it. The app allows you to quickly find movie tickets, prices and showtimes all from your iPhone. If that doesn’t sound like a good way to orchestrate a date, then we don’t know what you plan on doing, but we don’t want to.
10. Pocket Booth – $0.99
This is our last one, but it’s a good one! We know we mentioned an app earlier that did similar photo booth style images, but if you’re looking for a more traditional booth experience, there’s really nothing that beats this wonder of an app. It costs a dollar, and yet it has the potential to create so many more memories than that price would suggest.
