Some Great Apps For Couples That You Should Try!
Looking for the best apps for couples in 2020? So were we – until we realized that almost every article on the topic included out-dated apps from years ago.
Popular couple apps like Avocado, Couple, and others that USED to be great have since been abandoned by their developers. We’d suggest not downloading them because you never know what security issues you might face with your personal information!
As for apps that are still very much up and running, there are loads of different apps from game apps to play together to apps for keeping in touch over long distance. There are even great apps for married couples that can make life more organized or fun! So, here’s our list of a few different couple apps for different categories!
Calendar Apps For Couples
Having a good calendar app can be a great tool for busy couples with loads of “things” going on. Calendar apps are tricky business, however, because there already exist programs with integrated calendars in our devices.
Depending on the device you use, you might already have access to iCloud calendar, Google calendar, or Outlook/Microsoft calendars. So if you use one type of device at home or personally, chances are you can collaborate on the same calendar that you already have access to!
That said, if you use multiple devices and brands then this can be confusing and a good app can be useful. Here are two that work well for couples and families!
Team up is free and easy to use. There are multiple calendar views to suit your personal preference – and you can share availability, schedules, even track progress on tasks and other things!
Cozi Family Organizer
If you want a bit more of an integrated app with loads of functions (including a calendar), you should check out Cozi Family Organizer. There are also built-in lists, the ability to add and tag family members to tasks and events, and share a timeline across devices so no one misses a beat!
Budget Apps For Couples
Budgeting is super important – that’s why we wrote a whole article on budgeting. That said, there are some great money management apps out there for keeping couples on track and transparent with your spending and saving.
We like to use a monthly expanse tracker that we created ourselves online but there are apps to help you with the numbers, too!
You Need a Budget (YNAB)
One of the most popular budgeting apps out there is You Need a Budget. YNAB, as it’s called, is a good tool for allocating where you money is going – and being accountable for each cent of it.
Their software is good for different platforms and devices – but the app is useful for on-the-go people and couples looking to get a handle on their finances!
Another good for budgeting and managing money is Goodbudget. Don’t let the cute little icon fool you – this app means business when it comes to tracking your finances.
As you input your data, you can share it across different phones or devices to that your partner is updated in real-time, too. Spending and saving can be tracked in different views which are handy for understanding your money!
Relationship/Long Distance Apps
As for apps that help you stay in touch when you aren’t around or dating long distances, there are loads of them!
So, it’s best not to download it and provide information to an unstable/not up-to-date app! Here are a few updated ones that you can check out.
Between is likely one of the most popular apps out there for couples, period. It’s also one that they kept on updating so that helped a bit! Between is made for couples who want to have a private means of communication, share schedules, send GIFS, remember dates, share photos, and more!
Kindu is more of a communicator app that allows you to create dialogue and share ideas between you both. It’s done in a fun way through “matching” date ideas and other topics – and you only see the ones that you both agree on.
This is more of a long distance communicator app with a timeline you can curate yourself privately. With lots of stickers, photos, and other shareable, it’s a messaging app that you can basically make your own and personalize so that it’s “your space” when you are apart.
Game Apps For Couples
Happy Couple is all about getting to know your partner. The app has been around for some time now and remained as one of the most popular. Once you download, there are quizzes and challenges you get to complete with the intention of strengthening your relationship through communication and fun sharing.
Having played Spaceteam before, we can vouch for how ridiculous this game is. As a couple – and up to 8 people, actually – you get to play together on your devices as you “fly” a spaceship.
There are tasks to be completed and it’s full of silly stress, shouting, and nonsense – so check it out and let us know what you think!
List Apps For Couples
Always writing down the grocery list? Always forgetting that list at home? You will have this experience no-more with a great list app on your phone!
We actually have a whole article on great list apps if you want to stay organized. However, not all of them are great for collaborating with another person so here are two that are specifically good for couples!
Any.do is a very clean list app that actually does a whole lot more. You can sync across devices and it comes with a calendar function, reminder tool, and more. Look into Any.do if you want a list app with a bit more function to it (mainly the calendar and the fact that it works on MANY devices).
Wunderlist is a simplified and clean app for creating tasks, lists, and checking them off as you go. The best part about it (for couples) is that you can share tasks with one another. It’s also free but there is a paid version to unlock more tools so check it out and see what you think!
And there you have it – some of the best apps for couples out there! There are obviously more – but it can be hard to sort through the outdated ones. If you have some that you like, please let us know! We’d love to grow and expand this list so it’s useful and up-to-date!
As always, Stay Curious,
