I’ve been seeing their commercials on TV for weeks — this 100+-year-old company is officially on my radar — and probably that of everyone else in the NY area. Helzberg Diamonds has made their presence known just in time for Valentine’s Day, the helpful holiday that reminds men to be romantic (and maybe some women too!).
In the romance reminder category, Helzberg also created a FREE iPhone app the “Proposal Pro” to help plan the perfect proposal. Being a newlywed, I decided to test this out to see how it compared to my now husband’s proposal.
The app stacks up pretty well from a female’s perspective. It includes a timeline for choosing the date, the ring (I’ll take one of each, thanks!), getting the blessing of the parents, finding the right location (powered by Yelp), a proposal generator and the ability to share the news by connecting with Facebook (because of course she’ll say yes after you did all of this work).
This little helper also features a learning section to understand more about different ring types, the 4c’s of diamonds, starting prices, and a store locator.
This app is straightforward, easy to use, provides great information and a cool integration with Yelp — the use of Facebookconnect is also a nice touch because it makes sense! I was also surprised because the proposal generator came up with some short and sweet proposals that I think any gal would be happy to hear.
While I thought my husband’s proposal to me was perfect, if he used this app to do plan it, I would have never been the wiser!
