The free Pair app will help you create a social network designed for two lovers, a private way to share messages, pictures, maps and other digital material with your husband, wife, girlfriend or boyfriend.
Writers and media professionals spend too much time chasing Facebook readers and Twitter followers. It is easy to forget that these social networks are designed to create a deeper level connection online, rather than more superficial relationships. You can download the app for iOS or Google Play. Check it out:
Pair is the easiest way to stay in touch with the person you love, making it easy to share the little things in life with each other. It creates a timeline just for the two of you, where you can post cute video messages and photos that no one else will see. You can also chat, share sketches, voice messages, your location, and even let your partner know that you’re thinking of them with just the push of a button. If your partner has a Facetime account, you can easily switch from text chat to video chat from inside the app. If you’re both online at the same time, you can sketch together, as well as ThumbKiss – a feature that let’s you see where your partner is touching their screen so you can touch the same spot and make both phones vibrate simultaneously. Set reminders for your anniversary or your partners birthday, and share a to-do list to make sure your partner doesn’t forget the milk!
United Talent Agency head of social media Eric Kuhn introduced us to the app, and pointed out this is a growing segment in the app world. He wrote in the UTA Digital Media Team’s “Startup Sunday” newsletter: “There are a growing number of ‘private social networks.’ These networks for couples only include Between, Cupple, and Avocado. Private social networks specifically for family members include FamilyLeaf, Rootsy, Origami, and JustFamily.”
