Modern LDRs: There's an App for That

Pair is an app that lets you and your significant other “be together, when you're apart”. Currently available on iOS, though an Android version is in the works, Pair was created by Oleg Kostour and four other developers when they moved from Canada to Mountain View, leaving their girlfriends behind.

“We were trying to stay connected with them using Skype, SMS, Facebook, and email. The communication was scattered across many products, and we always felt like there was something missing,” Kostour says.

And thus, Pair came to be. You can use the app to send text messages, photos, and videos that only you and your significant other can see – sort of like a mini Facebook for two. You can also share your location, doodle together in real time, save important dates such as birthdays and anniversaries, and “thumbkiss” – that's when you and your partner touch the same spot on the screen.

Single hearts are now probably groaning at the cheesiness of it all. But don't dismiss Pair just yet, because when you find that special someone, this could very well be the one app that you won't be without.
