What Are The Best Apps For Couples?

If you think the quest for ~connectivity~ ends at "I do," you're missing out. All of us could use a bit of extra fire in our relationships, or even just a bit more organization, and there are mobile apps to help. If you've spent too much time on Candy Crush and not enough on your partner, there is still hope — just get your hands on a phone.

Turbocharge your relationship with these 10 couple and relationship apps that help you organize money, plan romantic evenings, and amp up your sex life (well, maybe). They’re worth testing out, at least!

Raft - Best Calendar App

When was the last night you had a date night? Planning around two different schedules can be super aggravating, to say nothing of adding kids into the mix ("I thought you were picking up little River from his panpipe class."). Enter Raft: it’s a calendar app that syncs schedules with your partner — as well as friends, if you choose — and makes it easier to see everyone’s plans in color-coded calendars.

Kindu - Best Sex Life App

Can an app help your sex life? It’s worth a shot. Kindu offers over 1,000 sensual and romantic ideas for couples to try. Your bae can say whether she is into an idea, open to it, or not going to try, not even on your birthday. Even if couples don’t end up taking on any of the challenges (and “beware—nothing is taboo,” according to the app), it can’t help but spur more open communication about desires.

Love Nudge - Best Love Languages App  

In today’s society, couples are all about compatibility and healthy habits, from astrology signs to Myers-Briggs Type and everything in between. Love Nudge, the official app of the 5 Love Languages, puts the concept of the love languages to work to create healthy habits in a relationship. Through exchanging playful nudges, setting goals, and tracking activities, Love Nudge helps couples learn how to cater to each other’s needs to sustain a supportive relationship. Rather than nagging your partner to give you attention or affection, let Love Nudge do the nagging for you.

  Pathshare - Best Location App

If you’re frequently tapping your foot impatiently while texting bae “Where r u??!!??” then Pathshare can put your mind at ease. The app uses a phone’s GPS to share its real-time location with one or more parties and includes a map so you can pinpoint their exact location and scheduled time of arrival. For privacy’s sake, Pathshare also allows you to set a session duration so that you can stop everyone from seeing your location.

Honeydue - Best Couples Budget App

This couples budget app totally lives up to its sweet name. Honeydue is the go-to personal finance app for you and your partner. Track your bank balances, bills, and spending together in one place. Say goodbye to the stress of keeping track of messy papers and confusing spreadsheets. Honeydue keeps everything beautifully organized while even reminding you when it's time to pay your bills. With everything clear and figured out, you and your partner can spend less time arguing and more time... well, we'll leave that up to you.

Venmo - Best Money Transfer App

Some couples join their bank accounts, while others keep things separate. If you’re in the latter category, Venmo makes it easier to pay each other back for anything from groceries to your mortgage. It also keeps track of your payments, so you’ll never have to question whether you really paid your hubby back for those beers. Plus, “hey, could you Venmo me?” is a lot less awkward to ask than “Where’s my money???”

MysteryVibe - Best Do it Yourself App

MysteryVibe is the app that controls the ~Crescendo, the world's first smart sex toy. It's designed to let your partner control things from in the room or further afield (however far your heart and Wifi might roam), and knows to simmer down if you haven't been using it for a period of time. If things get stale, you can always download more vibes to mix it up.

Lasting - Best Relationship Counseling App

Sometimes, official counseling or therapy is not necessary to solve your relationship problems. Lasting is a simple couples tool that creates a program specific to your relationship’s needs. Whether you want to learn how to approach conflict or repair a recurring issue, Lasting can give you the right tools to build a healthier relationship. With just a few minutes a day, you and your partner can be on your way to a lifetime of happiness with each other.

Between - Best Memories App

One of the best parts of being in a couple are the private messages, pics and goofy I-hope-no-one-finds-out-about-this moments that only you two share. The Between app is actually like several apps in one to suit all your schmoopy needs. Between allows you to keep a shared calendar with special dates, send romantic messages to each other, and even store memorable photos and videos. Keep the privacy of your relationship between (pun intended) you and your partner.

Couple Game - Best Relationship Game App

We’ve all read that New York Times article about the 36 questions that, when answered, will supposedly make two strangers fall in love. Couple Game answers the question “How well do you know me,” with the goal of getting to know each other better. With questions ranging from food to hobbies to romance and everything in between, the chat feature allows you to get flirty and spicy with your partner while answering questions.
