6 Messaging Apps for Couples



By Robyn Wright

This Friday is Valentine’s Day, and while texting is a great way to stay in touch with friends and family, it’s sometimes nice to have a special way to communicate with your partner.

Here are some great apps that can help you do just that. A few are specifically made for couples and a few are more general, but all of them will help make those loving words sound a little bit more personal!

Avocado

With Avocado, you create an account for you and your special someone and then you can both log in using your own devices. Your information is only shared between the two of you. You can send private messages, mobile hugs and kisses, calendar reminders, custom sounds, video clips, photos, and much more. One of the best apps for couples!

Cost: Free and paid versions
Platform: Android, iOS, Web, *Windows Phone

*For Windows Phone users, there is an unofficial app called Lovocado which works well with Avocado.



Between

Between is great for long-distance relationships. You share the location of the cities you both live in, so you can get automatic weather updates and more. You can also share private texts, voice mails, photos, and memories, and count down the dates to meetings and other events via your shared calendar.

Cost: Free
Platform: Android, iOS



Verizon Messages

Verizon Messages effectively replaces the standard messaging app on your smartphone or tablet, while adding a host of new features. Verizon Messages automatically sync texts between all your devices, including your desktop and laptop computers. Along with sending regular text messages, you can also send voice messages, songs, photos, and videos. You can also draw on your photos, and even share your location with the integrated Glympse feature.

Cost: Free
Platform: Android, iOS, Web



101 Love Msgs

Need a little help sending love notes to your Valentine? With 101 Love Msgs, you just scroll through dozens of different phrases and expressions, pick the one that you like, and instantly share it via text message. A simple but effective app if you are struggling to find the right words.

Cost: Free
Platform: Windows Phone



Couple

Couple is another option for couples to have a private place to share texts, voicemails, photos, and videos. You can even share cute thumb kisses. If you break up, your information is still retained in case you get back together. However, you can request a permanent removal of data if you are sure it is over :-(

Cost: Free, with in-app purchases
Platform: iOS, Android, Web



Messages

If you are a regular user of Apple products, then the iOS-based Messages is another great option. Messages lets you text over Wi-Fi rather than SMS and it includes photos, videos, location mapping and contact information. Messages also keeps everything synced across all of your devices, so you can pick up the conversation from anywhere.

Cost: Free
Platform: iOS

As you may have guessed, it is made of titanium and some stainless steel¡ªthe case is titanium and the rolex replica sale is stainless steel. The dial is brown, the watch hands are silver-toned, and there is a date window at the four o¡¯clock position. The sapphire case protects the breitling replica sale from water damage up to 30 meters. Synergy means cooperative action. This replica watches uk combines the best of the old and the new to deliver something uniquely modern. All of the classic elements are there. It has the sleek and stylish dial of the replica watches uk, the concave dot at the 12 o¡¯clock hour, and the Swiss quartz movement. But the Sapphire Synergy has something few breitling replica sale offer, a rubber wristband. Why rubber? Well, it¡¯s not a sport rolex replica sale, so using it outdoors is out of the question. But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
