Popular Social Networking App For Couples Updated With Various Improvements
Couple, the aptly named social networking app for two, has just received another update that brings several noteworthy improvements. One of these improvements is the ability to send videos from your library. Just tap the video icon in the "new item" tray to begin sending a video to your significant other. Of course, you can still shoot a new video to send right within the app. But now you can tap on the library button to load up and send an existing video instead. Another improvement is the addition of a "call" button to ring up your partner right from Couple. Tap the "partner" icon to see the new "call" button right next to the FaceTime button. When tapped, the "call" button automatically dials your partner's phone number. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. The latest update to Couple also adds delay options for the security code. As the team behind the app notes: "it's annoying to be asked every time, so now you can have the security and convenience." Now you can choose to require the security code immediately, or after one minute, five minutes, 15 minutes, one hour, or four hours. The new Couple update also includes faster message loading when you open the app and faster sending of photos. Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of Couple is available now in the App Store for free. Originally known as Pair, the app became Couple after the company behind it purchased Cupple, also a social networking app for couples, last February. A couple of weeks after its name change, Couple gained a feature that lets couples send Snapchat-like "secrets," private photos that can be set to disappear after they are viewed.
