The social landscape of the 3rd millennium can be extremely confusing. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, texting, IM...it can all be a bit much. Sometimes you just want to get away from it all, go to a nice quiet place with someone you care about, curl up together and enjoy some nice alone time. Now, thanks to Pair, you can do that on the go! Pair is a social app that allows you to stay in contact with your significant other and no one else. Sorry, polygamists.
The app is actually packed with plenty of useful features. A shared to-do list lets you and your partner keep up with household-y things. You can let your partner see your location without the fuss of a public social network. And then there's the incredibly useful and not at all sappy-to-the-point-of-inducing-nausea ThumbKiss. This innovative feature will show you where on their screen your life buddy is placing their thumb. Then, you touch your thumb to that spot. Congratulations! You have now ThumbKissed™!
Now, let's be real. Romantic relationships are a unique and complex beast. It's a special relationship between two people and only those two people get to define how it works. It's beautiful. It can be cheesy, or sappy, or weird. This app gives couples the freedom to express affection or just manage life in a variety of ways. You want to play tic tac toe or doodle with your lover? You've got it! It's actually a really neat idea and some couples should absolutely go for it.
However, as beautiful as your love may be, if any of you publicly acknowledges that you ThumbKiss your Snuggle Bunny Boo, you may open yourself up to the same type of teasing and ridicule that you would receive if anyone found out you call your significant other, "Snuggle Bunny Boo."
The app is available in the Play Store for free, requires two phones that love each other very much.
