(We love apps. We make them, after all! Our Favorite Apps is a series where we briefly take a look at an app that we really like.)
Overwhelmed by your Facebook friends? Flooded by a constant stream of tweets? Think Path’s 150 friend limit is still too much? Then try out Pair an iPhone and Android app that is meant for just you and your significant other. Dubbed Super SMS by the developers, the app allows both users to text each other, share photos and videos, and also allows you to sketch pictures. You can even send your current location for impromptu rendezvous.
The most unique feature of Pair is the thumbkiss. Either user can initiate a thumbkiss by pressing their thumb against the screen and waiting for the other lover to press their thumb in the same spot. Once both thumbprints have touched both devices will vibrate at the same time. Pretty romantic, huh?
The app has a very familiar interface similar to Path and Facebook, including a hideaway menu. The app also allows you to create shared tasks and remember birthdays and anniversaries.
