Dating has been revolutionized, thanks to the Internet.  Smart phones and their growing number of mobile apps are changing the dating game yet again, making it easier to manage your love life and find a potential match while on the go.

Match.com recently created an Android app, ushering in a new era for established dating services with a presence in the Android Marketplace.  While other major dating sites are still lagging behind, there are still plenty of other fish in the Android sea.

Just for dating

Match.com’s free Android app is a slimmed-down version of the Web site. You get to view profiles, send winks and messages, and upload photos to your profile.  Receive alerts for when a new match has been found, and see which matches are nearby.

Dating Tips and Advice is an Android app addressing issues we all face from time to time, making this free app a good one to keep in your back pocket. Somewhat like a blog, the tips offered through this free app come primarily from the female perspective and cover the gamut of dating pitfalls.

Another dating guru, Lana, shares her advice through the Love Android app, where you’ll also get aggregated tips from across the social Web. More interactive than Dating Tips and Advice, Love’s free Android app offers easily accessible filters for getting right to the type of dating help you’re seeking.

Date-planning

Urbanspoon’s free Android app can help you create the perfect atmosphere for date night.  Search for nearby restaurants, taking into consideration the type of cuisine, the desired setting (romantic), and your price point. See restaurant details and reviews, and call from the app to make reservations.

After dinner, you may very well want to take your date to a movie. The Fandango Android app can find nearby theaters, listing their films and show times.  Order tickets through this free app as well, with some location options allowing you to bypass the ticket lines all together.  Now that’s smooth.

Romance-inducing

Poems can be just the thing to either spark a new romance, or simply to keep the flame burning.  The free Love Poems Android app for Android gives you mobile access to a plethora of cheesy pros, which you can rate, save to your favorites or send to that special someone.

If you miss the days of mix tapes and “Midnight Love” CDs, try the Top 100 Love Songs app.  This free Android app has a collection of romantic songs, giving you a playlist on-demand, no matter where you are. Just make sure you have enough battery power to get through all the songs.
