The Best Communication and Connection Apps for Couples

  • Between – We had a lot of you recommend this is a great app for special texts and a place to store memories that is just between you and your love.

  • Lasting – Did you know that counseling apps existed? Lasting bills itself as a couple’s counseling app that personalizes your relationship roadmap based on you and your spouse’s feedback.

  • Couple Diary – You and your partner get one question every day and you each answer it to build up your very own Couple’s Diary!

  • Kik – A phone number-less messaging service used to connect easily with friends and loved ones.

  • Everflect – A relationship inventory that will help you and your spouse understand each others’ goals and get on the same page.
  • Marco Polo – We LOVE Marco Polo! Being able to see the face you love is so important in any relationship, but especially when you are working a Long-Distance relationship. It also allows you to watch, pause, fast forward, rewind, anything you need to make it easy to hear and share together.
  • Tango – A free messaging application that also has video calls!
