The Apple App Store is right up there next to Sephora and Andrew William Grade as a contender for the love of my life 😉

I can’t go a day without stopping by to check for updates or to see what new Apps are being featured for the week. It’s fun, it’s easy and  it truly does feel like shopping….but you can do it from your bed and you’re not likely to spend more than $4.99; Sephora and Andrew cost me WAY more than that! 😉

It is my belief that a truly well made and useful app can change your life. I’m not talking about Angry Birds time wasting kind of change your life, but a make your life easier, more productive, etc. kind of change your life. That is why…when I came across a cute little App called “Couple“…I was intrigued. It is (a little too) well known that I am one half of a couple so obviously I had to download it, it’s free!!

Essentially, the app allows you to “pair up” with your significant other and suddenly, the two of you have an entire private timeline dedicated to your love. Adorable right? It really is. In addition to the basic texting function….pictures, videos, sound recordings and sketches are built right into the app and easy to send. In addition to that you can “live sketch” a masterpiece together, simultaneously…which is so fricken adorable, I don’t care who you are! You can even send your exact location…which comes in handy when your significant other is as directionally challenged as yours truly. Calendar events, specific dates (anniversaries, birthdays, etc.) can all be shared. And if you’re ever feeling nostalgic all of your “moments” can be viewed in one easy to scroll through space.

Andrew and I have been “coupled” for four days and we love it! I just had to share some of the fun….

Love being able to hit one button to send a quick “thinking of you…” And the location, just in case he forgets how to get to my work!

Sending him goofy pictures because he just loves looking at my face so much 😉

I mean what other app can you simultaneously profess your love via a poorly drawn sketch AND discuss important matters?? 🙂

Basically….the app is just fun and it makes the daily monotony of communicating just a little bit more exciting, different and unique. I really can’t wait to share a timeline for a year and be able to look back on all of our “moments”, especially those as a newly married couple!! 🙂 So, if you’re curious about it…give it a shot and definitely let me know if you like it!
