These days, more than 50 billion apps have been downloaded off just the Apple iTunes store alone. Though smartphones and tablets have only come into being in the last decade, users have fully taken advantage of the endless entertainment opportunities. There is truly an app for everything.

When it comes to relationships, there are dozens and dozens of apps meant to connect strangers, rekindle romance, or help maintain marital bliss.

Read on for three must-have apps for your smartphone or tablet to rev up the romance in your life!


Tinder is the hot new app du jour. It’s essentially real life “hot or not” for people located in your area. If you think someone is cute and they think you’re cute, it’s a match! From there, the two of you can message back and forth within the Tinder interface or exchange numbers for a real world meet up.

A few great things about Tinder. 1) It connects to your Facebook account so you can see if you and a potential date have mutual friends. This considerably reduces the scariness factor. And don’t worry, it doesn’t show up on Facebook that you joined Tinder or downloaded the app on your phone. 2) You can see if you have any shared interests. 3) You can see between 1 and 5 pictures of each person. Unlike some dating sites that require just a single profile picture, Tinder let’s you look at a few photos to judge if the person is actually who they say they are. It’s fun, it’s casual, and it’s a great way to keep your social schedule packed with dates.


Snapchat is the perfect app for sending naughty texts to your beau. The application lets you send and receive pictures that last for only eight seconds before being deleted for good. Send teasing photos with sweet messages to stay on each other’s minds throughout the day. Snapchat is a fun app for couples that are just getting to know each other or for more established partners who want to spice things up.


Kahnoodle is a relationship app meant for long term couples. It provides tips for favors and date nights and lets you send IOUs to your partner with offers to do something new, naughty, or nice. Kahnoodle also links to daily date night deals so you two can grab a discounted dinner after a long day at work, and it lets you create a wishlist of things you’d like to do together. It’s a sweet way to stay connected and keep the romance alive no matter how long you’ve been together.

These apps are fun, but they won’t replace a therapist or trained professional if that’s what the relationship really needs. Though some couples’ counselors will argue that there are relationships beyond repair, experts like Mort Fertel feel otherwise. For couples who need help that can’t be solved with a cutesy app on a smartphone, there are more in-depth programs like Marriage Fitness that can help individuals work through rough times.
