8 Last-Minute Digital Must Haves For An Amazing Valentine’s Day

Posted 13 February 2015 12:00 AM by Eric Payne

If you’ve got a Valentine this year but haven’t made any plans, you’re about three days away from having a very bad Saturday. Fortunately for you, we live in an on-demand, mobile-driven world where everything we need is within reach, and if it isn’t, it will be soon. Check out Moxie’s Future Experience’s short list of eight apps and sites that will keep you from going down in flames — or maybe spare you considerable drama this Valentine’s Day.

1. How can you have Valentine’s Day without the Big Kahuna of on-demand services —Ubër. With three different tiers of service, a parking-free, drink-limit free night out on the town is par for the course for you and your special someone.

2. If your Day of Love quickly spirals into a Date From Hell, get a quick, authentic out sent directly to your phone from KnockToCall.This iOS-only app saves you from a bad date by sending a fake emergency call directly to your iPhone after you knock it. Hopefully, you’ll be able to do it without your date noticing.

3. On-demand flowers, beginning at $35, are available seven days a week and can be delivered within 90 minutes of your order from your phone. Impossible?Bloom that!

4. Dinner, flowers and a movie are so cliché, you say? Then try Spinlister, an Airbnb for bicycles, and hit the road wherever you two are. It’s a global service that won’t leave you cash-light, the way purchasing a bike will.

5. Who still calls to make reservations at restaurants? With OpenTable you’ll avoid the noisy backgrounds, the impatient maître d’s, and most importantly, the busy signals. Take it even further and get to your next destination faster by paying for dinner in advance. Just be sure to explain to your date that you aren’t skipping out on the check at dinner so that she won’t start knocking on her phone.

6. We would never advise you to go out on a first date on Valentine’s Day, but if so possessed by some cavalier desire to test the fates, why not give Hinge a try? This dating app allows you to “vet” potential candidates through friends on your social networks. Hinge removes the creep factor from stalking your friends’ friends on social media.

7. If all else fails and you simply don’t have a clue as to where to take your date — or should all your best laid plans go up in smoke — you can always check out Waze, the world's largest community-based traffic and navigation app. If you check your inbox, you’ll find a message allowing you to “Search Love” — crowdsourced suggestions from users on where to take your date, conveniently mapped out via cuddly red pins. As much as this makes perfect sense, and as much as we use Waze, we sincerely hope you won’t have to resort to a talking map for ideas for Valentine’s Day.

8. Should Valentine’s Day come and go and you’re just as single the day after as you were the day before, get the jump on next year with tried and true, where you can find a group and get social IRL with like-minded individuals in virtually any category. On the slim chance you don’t see anything you like, you can always start your own.
