Ratings and Reviews
It needs time stamps!
My partner and I have been using the app for a few weeks now, and we already like it for all the advantages others have listed. I especially love how directly I can access him--just open the app & start typing (rather than opening my in-phone texting and then find my conversation with him, sometimes risking error if I'm in a hurry, etc)--and I like having a unique notification tone and a unique digital "space" just for us.
The only thing that makes me hesitate about continuing to use the app is the lack of time stamps for when messages were sent. The app marks how long ago something was sent earlier that day ("30 min ago," etc.), but everything sent yesterday or earlier is only marked "1 day ago," etc. The website time stamps same-day messages, but again they disappear at "1 day ago" and beyond. I communicate with my partner so frequently that I actually use time stamps to remember what time I did something that day before, or earlier in the week. The lack of time stamps here makes texting--and any other messaging I've used--much better. Also, because almost all other messaging services use time stamps rather than time elapsed, I feel like users think in terms of actual time, and could wrap our heads around it better.
I also agree with another reviewer that the emoji could be updated, and there could be a wider selection of free stickers, which would make other messaging services less tempting.
Just the perfect little app
My fiancé and I have been using this app for literally years now and I'm surprised I didn't write a review earlier. I guess that reflects how rarely the app asks for review, which is awesome to not be annoyed frequently.
Since getting couple, we don't even use normal texting anymore at all. I love all the silly stickers included and of course you can buy more (but tons of packs are free) and the little extra options like "thinking of you" and thumb kisses which really distinguish this app from plain texting or other apps. You can also create lists or special calendar events there that are shared between the two of you and it can be very handy. You can send photos like texting but can add filters easily or can sketch things directly into the app. It's also nice having diff alert tones to use vs your phones preset tones so I always know when it's him texting.
It has an easy to use, attractive interface and you can customize with cover photos and profile pictures. The app works perfectly with no crashes basically all the time. I can't imagine why we would ever stop using this app. It has only been easy to use, helpful, and frankly a lot of fun. Highly recommend to any and all couples (not just LDRs) - we live together and still love the app and find it useful.
Couple is in shambles...👎
As others have already stated, Couple used to be a wonderful that was set apart from the other “Couples Chat” apps that are out there in the app store. We only started using this app back in mid ‘17, and already then, it seemed to be a dated app that hadn’t been updated in several years. We had some problems on and off as the year went on, and we treaded all through the year of 2018, until around the Fall months, and especially in December; the app was constantly glitching. The profile photo was blurred on the lock screen as well as it would show my bf as being online, although he was, Couple would glitch whenever I opened the app, it wouldn’t bring up my passcode screen, it opened immediately into the app! Both of us have been pretty frustrated and finally decided a couple of days ago to say goodbye to Couple and to use an encrypted chat app instead. It’s a shame really, because Couple had a lot of features that we both enjoyed as well as the layout looked polished than some other apps out there like “Between” as an example, as well as we shared a lot of wonderful memories on there. Tonight, when I went on to access info as to how to delete my data in the app, I noticed that those pages are gone! So much for that, the company has let Couple go to shambles and has abandoned the app! Goodbye Couple!
