When you first start living with your SO, it can take some time to get used to each other and to get into a rhythm with your lives. Luckily, technology is here to help. There are many apps on the market that help couples organize their lives together and many do so with some romantic or cutesy features thrown in.
What Are the Best Apps to Help Couples Organize Their Lives?
Whether you need help with shopping lists, keeping tabs on where each other are, private chats, or a wake up alarm buddy, you will find an app that will make coupledom easier. With an app to help couples organize their lives, you can spend more time enjoying each other’s company instead of trying to make things work.
Here are the 7 best apps to help couples organize their lives:
This is the ultimate but also simple app for keeping organized. It lets you and your SO sync your main apps on your phones through the Simply Us app. You can then add an important date to the Simply Us app and it will automatically appear on your SO’s main calendar app so they don’t have to load up Simply Us to see new calendar additions. It also syncs lists so both you and your SO will see the list and can add or remove items as you go along. This is great for to-do, grocery, and project lists.
This international app has features that you wouldn’t expect to find in a traditional couple app and that’s what makes it worth the download. It lets you keep in touch with each other and sync lists just like Simply Us, but it’s the extra features that make it stand out. For one, you can set the app to tell your SO when “Aunt Flo” has come to visit and avoid having that awkward conversation. You can also use the app to send a wake up alarm to your SO in case they took a nap without setting an alarm.
2Life is also similar to Simply Us but with a few extra features you might enjoy. You can message each other privately and sync up with the device calendar to save important dates. The app also has a neat profile section where you can input need to know information such as clothing sizes, favorite colors, or even medication information. This way you and your SO never forget anything important. One really neat feature of 2Life is that you can save links within the in-app browser and your SO can look at them, too. It’s a great way to share gift ideas or other fun information.
Our Groceries is simple a grocery list app for the whole family. That’s it. It doesn’t have any other features or cutesy extras that you might not ever use. It lets you create a list that everyone can see. When someone buys something on the list, they can cross it off and it will also cross off the list on your device. When you add something, it will appear on everyone else’s device, too. While it is designed for groceries, you can add any item to the list to make sure the house is always stocked and you won’t have to run extra errands all the time.
While this app isn’t for organizing your life really, it does make things easier in your coupledom. It is especially useful if you and your SO meet up regularly and someone might be running late or even lost. The person you want to find doesn’t even need to have the app installed on their device. Only you need it. You use the app to send a text to the person you want to find (in this case, your lost SO). Your SO receives a text asking for permission to share your location. Once accepted, you will receive an alert with your SO’s location. No need to text and call and bug your SO. If your SO is super lost then call and help out a little.
LokLok is a cute app that lets you send messages on the lock screen. How does this help with organizing your coupledom? While it is designed for cutesy messages, you can actually use it to send short messages about running late from work, picking up milk on the way home, or running errands. The message pops up on the lock screen so you or your SO don’t have to unlock the phone, open text app, and open text to see the message. They get it immediately. It makes sending quick messages a snap.
Cozi Family Organizer
Your family might be small right now with just two people but this app will still help out a lot. It is similar to Simply Us but without all the cutesy, lovey-dovey features. It is all about getting things done and keeping each other up-to-date. You can create lists and share them with each other while also adding or removing items from the list. You can keep track of schedules on a synced calendar. The great thing about this app is that is also works with tablets and computers so if you aren’t on your phone you can still check the app for changes or add new information.
If you and your SO struggle to keep life organized then these apps will help. Try them all out until you find the one that fits your needs and works best for your relationship and life. Enjoy each other and stop stressing about getting things done.
