We often find ourselves asking what women really want from their man, but deep down inside we know it's real simple. Aside from a great personality, an awesome butt sense of humor, a good balance of manners and pilyo (well...maginoo pero medyo bastos always works), and the utmost respect for people regardless of their station in life, you know what they really find appealing?
In-demand ka pag may brains ka
So how can you feed your brain—and up your game? Again, it's simple. Get your smartphone or tablet, and start downloading any of these essential apps. We know na gasgas na ang “there's an app for everything,” but hey, it remains oh-so-true!
ALL ABOUT NEWS
The FHM Nation gets its daily dose of news and juicy tidbits online from FHM.com.ph (duh!), but we do know you fine fellas have other news sources. Use apps like Feedly, Flipboard, and Zite to corral all your everyday reads into one customizable feed. If you prefer magazines, get your monthly subscriptions of foreign and local titles (including FHM!) through Buqo!

- Zite: Free for iOS and Android
- Buqo: Free for iOS and will soon be available for Android
ALL ABOUT FASHION
Tees, jeans, and kicks are all good, but you gotta snazz it up even more for those extra-special occasions. And while we've given you plenty of tips on fashion and grooming, having a few more fallbacks won't hurt. Among the apps that caught our eye are Gilt and Valet Magazine.
ALL ABOUT FOOD AND DRINKS
We can't overemphasize the importance of knowing exactly where to get the best tummy-fillers and liver-busters. Seriously. Apps like looloo, foursquare, and Zomato will come in handy when your date asks you where you two are going for Date Night, and is in no mood to do the thinking for you.
Then again...you know what would be a great change of pace? A nice home-cooked meal for your lady love. Give your wallet a break, have a long conversation with your date in a quiet place, and add a few more digits to your pogi points. Plus, men who cook really well are deemed as sexy. Check out Epicurious; Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything; and Julia Child, Simone Beck, and Louisette Bertholie's famous cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking: Selected Recipes.
Knowing how to make her favorite drinks and cocktails will make Date Night even more kick-ass. Download Cocktail Flow, Mixology Drink Recipes, and Cocktails Made Easy for boozy concoctions to make at your place, or hers. Cheers!
