A private line to your loved one is what everyone wants. Pair for iPhone and Android takes that wish and turns it into reality by establishing a private connection between two people that can be used to send messages, pictures, videos, your current location and even a gesture of affection. Furthermore, no accounts other than the “paired” ones can be used to access the data shared between you two, so you can be as affectionate as you want without being embarrassed. You can even work on an image together to compose handwritten messages and pictures that can be modified and added to by your partner. No more cold factory-font text messaging. Feel the warmth of your loved one’s writing, and you can also have fun playing tic-tac-toe with them using the same feature.
After installation, you can open the app and sign up for a new account for free, or log in if you already have one.
Once the signup or login is done, simply enter your partner’s email address to invite them. You can even choose to send an introductory video if you want when you tap Send invite.
Tapping the ‘+’ button in the bottom-left corner will open the options bar (the button will transform into an ‘x’ and a bar will appear above the textbox). Here you can choose to send a photo, a video, paint a pic (also for handwritten messages), send an emoticon, send a thumbkiss, send your location and finally, draw with your partner on a shared canvas (you can also play tic-tac-toe in real-time with this).
Note: When you receive an image or video, open it by double-tapping and close the opened file by triple-tapping it. The Thumbkiss is a gesture of love exclusive to Pair users. Love and feel loved by using it without others noticing. For all these options, see left to right across the two pictures above, you’ll have to slide the bar to see the second portion.
Tap the more/menu icon at the top-left of the screen to open the settings menu. Here you can set important dates (like anniversaries, birthdays, etc), schedule shared tasks and even go over all the previous files shared in Moments. You can also change your settings, get help for the app, suggest the app to other couples and finally, logout.
In the iOS version, if your email address is the same as the one you use for FaceTime, then you can tap the circle at the top-right to place a video call. Unfortunately, If you register with an address different from your FaceTime one, then this feature will not work.
In the settings tab, you can change your profile, security and notification settings. Finally, you can choose to unpair your devices in case of a breakup, in order to make sure your ex doesn’t keep bothering you.
