Long distance relationships are certainly not easy but with the use of a range of apps you can still feel close to your partner even when they are not there. Long gone are the days of letter writing and pricey phone calls to stay in touch or to carry out important tasks, and so many couples around the world are better off for it. Whether you are going to be away from each other for a long or short time, these are the apps which you should be looking to use in order to stay close.
There will often be things to take care of whilst you are apart such as paying bills and covering rent, so you will need finance apps which will make this easy. Most banks have very good apps which you can use abroad to manage your money and joint accounts, be sure to download before you leave however as it will be difficult when you are abroad. Additionally an app to send money online is critical, and Ria Money Transfer is the best in the business. This app allows you to quickly change and send foreign currency back to your partner at home, offering great conversion rates and low fees.
Staying in touch is easier than ever before thanks to the wide range of video calling and instant messaging apps available. There is plenty to choose from here such as WhatsApp, Skype and even Facebook messenger. If privacy is important to you then also consider an instant messaging app like Signal.
Sharing a digital notebook is the ideal way for you and your partner to make plans together, set reminders and even share digital postcards with each other. Again there are plenty to choose from here, each offering you the chance to create notes using text, images, videos and other resources. Whether you are trying to plan a vacation together or setting reminders for things to do at home, this is the ideal way to go about it.
Whilst you can call your partner when you are missing them, an even better option is to use apps which allow you to share moments together. For example the Rave app is great for linking you both together as you watch video streaming services online. This novel app means that you and your partner can share in a movie or video on YouTube, and it will almost be like you are snuggled up on the sofa together. Additionally you can look to play games which allow for multi-player features, so that you can wile away the time together no matter where you each happen to be in the world.
Using these apps may not make up for you and your partner not being together, but you most certainly will feel closer to one another when you do. At the very least, you will have less time to miss your partner given the range of ways in which you will both be able to connect.
