Savage Love is the companion app to the popular syndicated sex-advice column of the same name, providing easy access to Dan Savage's columns, podcasts (aka Lovecasts), video clips, and a regularly updated Question of the Day.

The app has a clean, easy-to-read interface, opening on the current Question of the Day ("QotD") above separate tabs for previous QotDs, a search tool (letting you search through hundreds of old Savage Love columns), a list of Lovecasts (with every Lovecast ever), and a big set of browsable tags--everything from Boobs and Bonobos to Sexual Compatibility and Snowballing. You can also easily share questions with friends via e-mail, or add them to your personal favorites. A secondary menu lets you ask Dan a question (via e-mail or voice mail, for either his column or podcast), watch short videos, buy Savage Love merchandise, read Dan's bio, or--hilariously--just gaze at a picture of Dan (under the "Ohhh... DAN!" option).

Much of this content is available elsewhere for free, but not in a format that's easy to search and navigate. The only serious shortcoming is the lack of good playback controls for Lovecasts, which the developers plan to address in an update. If you're not familiar with Savage Love, you might find even the app's start-up screen NSFW ("Rimming... Initializing golden showers... Getting a tissue..."), but this app is a good value for serious Savage Love fans.
