Couple is an iPhone app designed for couples that stay miles apart from each other to help them keep in touch. It was formerly known as Pair. Naming an app this ways speaks volumes about bridging the intimacy gap between couples.
Couple can only be used between two people obviously. You could hypothetically try it out with a friend, but the features on the app are all about expressing romance and love, so you may not feel totally comfortable with sending a “Thinking of you…” thought bubble to a casual friend or co-worker.
If you’ve tried the Path app before, you’ll probably love the Couple app too. It functions very similarly and the layout is similar. It features a timeline structure of your activity and includes a little plus sign button in the bottom left to choose what action or post you want to make.
How to Use Couple
You can download Couple for free for the Android and iPhone store and create a free account. Before you can start interacting with the app, you have to send an invite to your partner and have them accept their invite. Once your partner has clicked on the confirmation link in the email, you can check out all the features that make the app so special and great for couples.

Why Should You Use Couple?
Sure, there are hundreds of other alternatives to using Couple like Instagram, Facebook, Skype, and so on. But Couple puts everything in one place, just for you two. And you sure won’t find some of the features there on any other apps like Thumbkissing. You will feel closer to your partner through this app.
