Apple iPhoneClothing, Accessories, and ShoesServices and ShoppingTelecommunication Service

There's a smartphone app for almost everything, so why not an app to help with prom planning? From picking the perfect dress to editing your pictures, there is an app to help with every aspect of the big dance.

"So many teens have smartphones," said Molly McLaughlin, mobile technology editor at ConsumerSearch.com. "They are already managing their lives with these devices."

Here are her top prom apps.

Prom Hairstyles (free for the iPhone)

The app allows the user to try different hairstyles on a photograph of herself. After finding your favorite style you can save a picture, bring it to your hairdresser and share it on Facebook.

iPromDress: Prom Dress Shopping Assistant ($1.99 for iPhone users)

This personal shopping app allows users to browse styles and save favorites in an alphabetized catalog of dresses by designer, color, neckline or other feature. You can narrow down your selections before you hit the store and share your dress picks on Facebook.

Ask2Dance ($1.99 for iPhone users)

If you find yourself at the prom wanting to ask someone to dance but not sure how to make the approach, Ask2Dance can help. This app acts as an icebreaker tool, offering topics to talk about when you ask that special someone to dance.

Camera360 (Free for iPhone and Android users)

The dance floor may be a little too dark for a photo op, but if you have the Camera360 app you can snap the picture, then brighten it from your phone. This app lets users edit and apply special effects to their photos on the go.
