MANILA - Need help planning this Valentines' Day?

A list of free-to-download apps, curated by phonemaker Nokia, can help you pick a perfect outfit, figure out how to cook a perfect meal, and help you make Valentine's Day more memorable.

Zomato + Waze

Start off your Valentines' Day plan with figuring out where to eat and how to get there. A couple wouldn't want to waste the night stuck in traffic, lost, and bickering over which restaurant to choose.

With the Zomato Restaurant Finder, this first step couldn't be any easier. The app provides hundreds of restaurant recommendations around Metro Manila and allows a look at menus, pictures, as well as a map on how to get there.

Match it with the Waze app, which details the fastest route on how to get to your destination using crowd sourced traffic information, and one has very little to fret about.

Wear It + How to Apply Make Up

Next up is finding the right outfit for this special night. Download the Wear It app and browse through stores and paired outfits posted by professional stylists to inspire one's own style.

Tie your whole look together with How to Apply Make Up, which provides detailed steps, helpful tips and warning, and video demonstrations to help one prepare for the big night.

TuneIn + YumvY

Decided to have dinner at home, instead? Try downloading the cooking companion app, YumvY. It walks you through several recipes, parses it step by step, from start to finish to help you impress your date with a home-cooked romantic dinner for two.

Top it all off with your favorite love songs from TuneIn, which offers over 100,000 stations globally and over 2 million on-demand streams to choose from. Find those songs that speak the words you can't seem to find and play them in the background, while you and your date dine by candlelight.

Instagram + A Beautiful Mess

And last, prolong the night you've prepared weeks for with custom photos that you can post online and share with your friends. Pair up the free to download application A Beautfiful Mess with Instagram to add more custom filters, fonts, and hand-drawn doodles to your photos.
