In a Long-distance Relationship? The Right App for You

By Internationalcouples @icouples

PairA constant factor for the vast majority of international couples is distance, in many forms. It might be distance from our families, from our friends, from our country, from the place where we grew up. Distance represents one of the fear factors for international couples. Luckily, nowadays the fear factor can be mitigated by technology (by the way, did  you read This Is A Must Read Article: How To Save on International Calls!?). Many of the communication and messaging software and smart phone Apps are available for free or their cost is relatively low in price.

At some stage, an international relationship involves a long-distance phase. The existing Apps and Skype-like software provide an interface that can connect you with your partner, a number of friends, family and so on.

Pair, on the other hand, revolutionizes this concept.

The guys behind Pair had just moved to California but their girlfriends were still in Canada so they thought up of a convenient way of messaging with them, sharing pictures, videos, sharing their locations and even sketches.

Forget a list of friends to browse through, Pair needs you to pair with someone, to choose your partner. Once you have done that, you basically establish a private network for the two of you!

Real-time features also play a strong part in Pair. With ThumbKiss you can see where your partner's finger is on the screen and if you touch it both phones vibrate. You can also share a to-do list or let your partner know when you safely got  home.

The team behind the App is also working on an Android version. Since it is not available yet, you may join the Pair waiting list here.

By the way, did I mention that Pair is free?
