My husband and I love to go out and do fun things. It is rare that we have a date night that isn't in some way associated with something we needed to do that week, but it's also because we live in such a rural area that we try to plan our trips to the cities near us. When we do, we always pull out my iPhone 7 Plus from U.S. Cellular and plan the evening.
When we were dating, we did a lot of texting as phone plans were different back then. Did you know that 61% of people texted a potential love interest within the first few weeks following a first date. (Funny but true, by the time my husband and I had a real date we were already married. Everything we tried to plan fell through, including a trip to the Smithsonian -- that was when the government was shut down! Perhaps my husband should have used these apps!)
What are some apps that are helpful when planning a date night?
OpenTable allows you to book reservations at many restaurants. It also provides reviews and important information as to how you should dress for dinner. If you use Apple Pay, you can use your iPhone to pay for the evening!
Poynt can help you find a place to go for drinks after dinner based on your location.
Bouqs allows you to buy flowers and have them delivered the same day. This app also allows you to set up automatic flower delivery for your anniversary or birthdays. That way, you won't forget your anniversary next year!
Vivino allows you to snap a photo of a wine label for information on food paring, pricng, ratings, and reviews of that wine.
Date Night by Care.com is a way to find a babysitter in your area if you are a mom and dad in need of an evening out. Once you book your child care, the app has links to OpenTable and Fandango to make it a one stop shop for planning for a dinner and a movie.
