Hallmark holiday or not, Valentine’s Day carries joy, expectations, sadness, and more than its share of tired tropes for just about everyone. What, we wondered, signals love in the age of digital-era dating? Synching calendars on Outlook? Downloading a marriage counselor app on your smart-phone? To find out how far app developers will go to romance your smartphone this Valentine’s Day, I spoke with Brenna Ehrlich, co-founder of the blog and book Stuff Hipsters Hate and Netiquette columnistfor CNN, where she and Andrea Bartz recently wrote about three of the weirdest Valentines Day apps.
