10 best couples apps for Android
Most app lists are for individual use. Smartphones can be great for couples as well. It’s really just a selection of apps that can be useful for more than one person. In reality, it’s a difficult subject to broach. Couples need different things. They have different styles and do different things together. Thus, we tried to keep a lighter touch with this piece. We’ll also name some alternatives in case the ones we list don’t work. Here are the best couples apps for Android.
Allrecipe Dinner Spinner is probably the most rock solid cooking app available. It’s perfect for date night meals, breakfasts in bed, or whatever you might feel like cooking for your significant other today. It has a great selection of recipes at its core. You can add recipes to favorites, spin the spinner for random ideas, and it even features step-by-step cooking videos. There are tons of cooking videos. However, we always seem to keep coming back to this one. It’s not that it’s overly special. The app just does it right. It’s also free with no in-app purchases. There are ads, though.
Price: Free / $12.99 per month / $99.99 per year
Amazon is a great app for couples. They sell basically everything. The company’s Prime service adds all kinds of extra goodies as well. You can find products for whatever hobby, lifestyle, or kink that you might be into. We’re not here to judge. Additionally, Amazon has a food delivery service available in some areas as well as household products for couples that live together. Prime adds things like video and music streaming to round out the experience. Amazon has something for whatever you want to do. Their music and video streaming services aren’t as good as competitors, though.
Price: Free (food costs money)
Eat24 is a food delivery app. It’s a great way to pick up some decent food without leaving the house. You may find that useful if you’re spending the day in bed for whatever reason. Eat24 is one of several services that delivery food. Grubhub and UberEATS are other popular options. No matter who you go with, these apps can be great for sharing a meal without having to cook it or go get it yourself. It’s perfect for those lazy days at home.
Eventbrite helps people discover local events. This is a great app for couples who want to have a night out on the town and don’t know what to do. It’ll show festivals, concerts, large get togethers of various types, classes, and more. It’ll also show free events for those couples on a budget. There are other apps that can do this as well. Facebook has a fairly robust events platform, for instnace. However you do it, having an app that gives you quick info about events in your area can make planning a date night easier.
Google’s app is a bit of a cheap pick, we know. It can do or find pretty much whatever you want. You can set reminders, find events, look up something to settle an argument, check out movies (and movie times), and a whole lot more. It’s one of the better all-around couples apps. You can use it for reminders to take out the garbage or make sure that latest movie doesn’t have a 0% Rotten Tomatoes rating before going to see it. In some regions, you can even use it to order food.
Note taking apps make for excellent couples apps. Google Keep is probably the best one available. The app syncs between various devices. It’s also completely free. You can also add your significant other to notes for you two to share. It’s useful for things like grocery lists, date night ideas, pros and cons lists, and whatever else. Personally, I use mine to keep track of Christmas gift ideas. Pretty much any note taking app will work. However, Keep strikes a good balance between usefulness and minimalism.
Price: Free / $7.99-$11.99 per month
The inevitable Netflix and chill reference was coming. In reality, any streaming service can be great for couples. You find a few shows you both like. That always gives you something to watch when you’re hanging out. The streaming service depends on your tastes. Those who like current TV may want to go with something like SlingTV while anime and indie fans may want to go with VRV or YouTube. There’s more video stuff out there than you can shake a stick at. It shouldn’t be too hard finding a few shows you both like.
OpenTable is an app for discovering new restaurants. It has a bunch of restaurants that you can find. Additionally, it lets you reserve tables at a good number of them. This is tailor made for a classic date night. You can also send invitations straight through the app if needed. There are lots of apps that can help find restaurants. Google Maps is a good one. However, few have the features that OpenTable does. Plus that reservations feature is awesome.
Pinterest is one of the better free couples apps. It has a variety of ideas for things like DIY projects, fashion, hobbies, ideas, home decoration, and all kinds of other stuff. It’s fun to flip through even if you have no intention of doing any of it. The app lets you save ideas for later, search for stuff by keyword, and save ideas together with friends (or your partner). It’s also a good place to find ideas for new hobbies you can do together. The app is completely free as well.
Price: Free / $27.99 per year
TickTick is one of the best to-do list apps available. It features collaboration features. That means you and your partner can keep track of the same stuff like grocery lists, trash day, etc. Hey, not all couples apps are about fun! Sometimes, it’s good to be responsible too and this app helps with that. It features a simple UI and most of the desirable features (like collaboration and reminders) are on the free version. It can remind you of your upcoming anniversary or date night or just to take the trash out. There is a premium version. However, the vast majority of people don’t need it.
