Apps built for two provide private spaces for couples to share messages, photos and videos — without bombarding friends' walls or news feeds.
Karen Ruskin, a licensed marriage and family therapist, tells Mashable."A couples app provides an opportunity to use technology to the couple's advantage, rather than playing a role in the potential harm of the couple." These apps are extremely advantageous to modern-day couples."It is common for a spouse to travel for work and get lost in the relationships developed while away from one's spouse," says Ruskin."To have a couples app that provides for real-time connection creates a presence to help save the couple from disconnection." The apps are also beneficial to those in long-distance relationships.Apps such as Pair, Avocado and Feel Me add "touch" to mobile messaging — mobile "hand holding" or "kissing" then reinforces asynchronous messages with a live connection.
