After a few days of testing apps, this is what I have to share out. Some apps are organizers, some silly, some are just because we can make an app. But whatever the app, I had fun exploring how each app made my dating life exciting.
During this very scientific study, I researched each app thoroughly in hopes to discover how each app can better dating, couples, and relationships and after a few days, I have my results.
Even though this post seems somewhat silly, I really invested a lot of time and energy to understand each app for you.
This list is in no particular order but more just a random order that made sense to me. Have fun reading, clicking, and downloading.
This app promises that on the other end there is someone from Nepal answering your questions. I don’t really know but okay. The app states that the astrologers are described by the app as genuine professionals trained in astrology. You can read more when you download the app. Personally, I am not sure but I completed my profile and asked a question. The next message told me to wait like an hour for a response. Waiting. Note: You get one question for free and then after that, you pay per question. So make sure you free question is worth it. Especially the first one. About an hour and a half later, I received a message asking for more information. I sent it. About a day later, I received this long message about this current year, my relationship, and a description about me. Supposely, I will have great fortune in the Fall and in December. Nice. I will take it.
Couple is an app for two. One signs up and then the other is asked to join. And then the other joins, you must wait. After a little bit of back and forth, you are ‘paired’. The app lets two people connect with special dates, lists, moments, photos. you can purchase stickers, too. In the app, you can call, FaceTime and message. You can add personal photos to your profile to personalize this messenger app.
This app is great to keep your messages organized between the two of you. I love the cute puppy, too. I definitely can see the benefit of using this app as I receive text messages all day and it was nice to keep our messages separated from the rest.
3. Happy Couple
First, I love the bird image. Super cute. This is a ‘Getting to Know You’ app. Every day you will receive a quiz which will ask you 5 questions. 3 that are the same and 2 different. Hmmm. I am writing this as I read the slideshow at the beginning of the app. When one signs up, the partner is asked to sign up as well. You have the choice to sign up via text or email. I decide text was easier.
Happy Couple quizzes are fun, silly, and interesting. It is sort of like that old show where couples would answer questions and they would match you up based on responses. What’s that called? Yes, the Match Game. Yes, this app is like that show. This app has some pop ads.
Who knew there were so many apps to make couples feel special as they chat? Between is another chat app that assists couples to keep their messaging in a separate space. You know out of the normal messages that fly through texting. This app also tracks days to special days and offers cute stickers for a cost. I think the hardest part is signing in on two devices. It’s not terrible but it is a pain to get both accounts connected. You can also upgrade Between to access more lovely features for two.
Again if you need to keep your messages in their own category this app will help with that. I did enjoy the story section where you can upload photos and make a storybook with moments. That was cool. You can also add videos and notes to the story section.
This app is FUN! Yes, fun. After you sync the app between the two of you, have fun sending each other dares. Yes, dares. It is sort of like spin the bottle but there is no closet. You send a dare worth a certain amount of points then your partner accepts the dare. Your partner has a time limit to complete the dare or they lose points. Yes, there are points involved. Each dare is worth a value. you can either write in a dare, select a dare, or collect a dare from the community. I will say the dares increase from mild, spicy, and hot. You can choose how far you want to go and your partner can control if they wish to take the challenge.
My suggestion: Start out slow and work your way up. You know your partner best so go with your intuition. If you are not the daring type, read the suggestions and add some spice to your date life. This app is a MUST download.
If you are not the daring type, read the suggestions and add some spice to your date life. This app is a MUST download.
Honi is similar to Desire with the challenges and the send back and forth. Instead of mild, spicy, and hot, Honi has levels. I completed a challenge and made my husband a handmade gift. This app works with points as well. So play the dare game. Personally, this app seems a little more on the mild side so if you are not into all the spicy dares on Desire, try Honi first and work up to Desire. The language is a little more gentle. If you download both apps, you will know what I mean.
7. Time Tree
Time Tree is an organizational app that helps connect couples through shared calendars. This app allows you to customize with photos, color settings, and naming. The app is super easy to setup and the layout is really pretty.
I decided to start the login on the computer then log into the app on my phone. You can do what you wish. I also created dates on the laptop because it was just easier to see and manipulate.
When I shared the app with an another, we were able to connect through the shared calendar. Because of the apps’ shared features, we were able to both be notified about the same events. This is super helpful when we run all the time! I loved the personal touch with photos. I was a little disappointed that Google Calendar couldn’t be imported. I love my Google Calendar and even thinking of trying something new is scary but I willing.

If you are looking for something new for just the two of you, this app is perfect. But sadly after three days, I went back to the Google Calendar.
This one is simple but it can delete the uncomfortable moment of how much to tip or how do we split the bill. Thank goodness no login for this one. And you don’t have to share this one with your partner. YES! This app is straight forward and makes paying any bill easy.
I was able to use this app several times as I date my area and found it very convenient but I didn’t like the popup ads. 😦
9. Honey Due
Honey Due is a linked bank account app for couples to visually see what is happening in their accounts.
After signing in from two devices, your accounts are linked. Again both devices must be activated to use this app.
Honey Due also tracks spending and will split bills. This app made me giggle with the emoji add on to the bills. You can also comment on purchases. I can think of some good comments for some purchases! Hmmm…let me think. “WHAT!”
If you are concerned with finances, you can track your spending in the budget
section as well. There is a circle graph illustrating your spending.
Honey Due will display what area you are spending your money in as well if you care to know. I am Miss Forgetful so this feature of adding in bill reminders seems attractive and a great reminder for those like me who forget.
After using this app, my husband and I both decided that this app was a keeper based on its quick check display, easy to read layout, and the bill reminder.
Again, I am not an app girl but I loved testing these apps out. I have to thank Carvaka for this awesome infographic that started it all!
After a few days, I have decided to keep Desire, Tip Calculator, Honey Due, and Couple.
