Modern Dating Tech: Top Apps to Make Long-Distance Relationships Easier

Love doesn’t come easy, especially when you and your sweetheart do not live in the same city or country. Yes, long-distance relationships are a real thing, and holding such love isn’t a cakewalk. Thanks to technology, such relationships now have a variety of services and apps that make the journey a little easier.

With the evolution of technology happening at lightning speed, many app-makers have come up with breakthrough ideas that can keep you and your mate connected all the time and in a special way. We have come up with a list of personalized apps that are meant for long-distance lovebirds.


Long distance relationship app - Avocado

Avocado is an app that is made just for the two of you. It tracks your relationship progress. Many of you must be thinking why it is named “Avocado?” The Avocado tree does not bear fruit unless there is another tree beside it. The app archives every moment that you spend with your loved one which in turn helps to track how far you’ve come. It is ideal for maintaining privacy as well as it self cleans the message after it is read, like Snapchat. It is good for the productivity aspect as well, as it syncs events with your Google calendar. You can download it free of cost for iOS and Android.


Long distance relationship app - Couple

The couple is the cutest app that I have come across. One of the major highlights of the app is its “ThumbKiss” feature which enables companions to touch the same spot on the display which makes both phones buzz. The app also has a shared timeline feature that keeps your info together. Another cool feature is LiveSketch which allows both of you to draw together in real-time. The app is free for iOS and Android.

Showgoers for Netflix

Long distance relationship app - Showgoers for Netflix

The Showgoers app is giving a whole new meaning to Netflix and Chill. It is movie dating for long-distance couples. What happens when you aren’t in the same room? Remember when you lied and said you had a girlfriend in another city? Well, now you can actually have one and still watch the same movie at the same time just like you are in the same room. You will need to install the Showgoers Chrome extension.

Once installed, every time you open Netflix in the browser, you will see a 3D image of a glass in the top-right corner. You will get a special URL whenever you click on the icon, and then you can share it with the one you want to watch the movie with. Additionally, if both of you have the extension, you can sync the movie streams. It even syncs the pause and play activity, so whenever one of you pauses the movie, the same action will happen on the other’s screen as well. As of now, the extension is available for the Chrome browser only.
