Are you both introverted and prefer to ‘Netflix and chill’ or are you two the more outgoing type? Worry not, there is an app for each of you
When it comes to dating, we all have different preferences and approaches to treat our significant other — just like everyone has a different colourful personality. There have been a lot of trendy social networking apps created just for couples recently to meet this need.
Each app carries with it its unique strengths and services that meet specific needs based on a couple’s relationship style. Some couples are very social and outgoing while others may be a bit more serious and best be categorised as devoted love birds.
Now all these couples have the option to choose an app that perfectly matches their style.
For the systematic planners: Couplete
Couples can use this app to plan their next date or upcoming anniversaries in advance. They can also take advantage of the ‘wish box’ feature to share and grow a list of restaurants or movies that they would like to enjoy together. The search function in the app allows them to take a look at other anonymous couples’ dating routine, hence they can also use someone else’s wishes for themselves.
When you fill out a wish list, you can insert a link directly to the box so that you can conveniently make gift purchases by following the link. Interestingly, Couplete’s calendar boasts of a secret feature that allows lovers to share their private schedule without embarrassment. They can check on each other’s schedule such as a girlfriend’s period, thus promoting a safer and more caring relationship.
For couples who want a ‘status report’: Ginger (phonetic translation) for Between
Between is a popular Korean app developed for couples to share each moment only with their special someone. It has attracted a lot of users because it offers an ultra-private and meaningful platform that nurtures intimacy with your significant other.
Ginger for Between (aka Ginger) is a special sub-app that works like an intelligent secretary for a couple. Between leverages Ginger to provide various analytics for users, ranging from analysing text messages exchanged between a couple to issuing a weekly ‘Ginger report’ that highlights the analysis derived from a witty love index.
For example, the app tells the couples the average number of texts exchanged between them in any given week. It also expresses one’s mood as part of the ‘weekly status’ reflected on the weather widget.
An interesting fact about this app is that Between’s user report allows you to check your affinity with each other on the basis of history and can determine how much of the effort you are making to maintain a relationship with your loved one.
Additionally, Ginger also offers dating advice to couples by analysing patterns of conversations between lovers. The logic is simple – the less frequently you use the app to text or share photos, the more alerts you will receive to start contacting your significant other more regularly. The app is playing Cupid with its artificial intelligence, indeed.
For social, extroverted couples: Two people
Unlike other traditional couples’-only apps, Two people is an open platform that works as a couples’ version of Facebook. One couple shares a single account to interact with other couples on the app.
You can share any updates or photos on your timeline and then you can also peek into other couples’ dating lives. One of the app’s popular features is called “Ask more,” where you can ask for some very serious or light love/relationship advice as it relates to a couple’s particular issue. Once the questions are posted, other people can tackle the question by either responding with Yes or No or posting anonymous comments.
After all, people find this useful because they could end up getting some quality advice from other couples that could have gone through similar dating bumps and experiences recently.
So what are you waiting for? Get on one these apps to take your relationship A game to the next level.
