It’s almost 2016 and with the over-saturation of apps, creating a completely new idea in this market can seem tough. From apps that allow you to have a home control panel on your iPhone to apps giving you the ability to set a chain of location-based rules to improve the efficacy of social media platforms for your company, the options seem endless.
Many of these apps make life easier for us, allow for us to communicate with people located nearly anywhere in the world, allow interpersonal desires to be projected in (for the most part) socially acceptable ways, and help us efficiently capture life’s most exciting moments so we can, ideally, enjoy living life to the fullest — not always the case. Few apps out there allow you to learn about a loved one. Even fewer apps out there are focused on building one of the most important relationships many people will have with another person. This is where Happy Couple App steps in.
This week’s episode of TheHumanBluPrint Radio explores the Happy Couple App that Dr. Barbach and her team created. The Happy Couple App allows two people to explore their relationship by way of short daily quizzes that cover topics including: sex, responsibility, information, emotion, recreation and communication. Listen to Marc and Dr. Barbach discuss the app, it’s 1000+ questions, Marc’s experience with it since late September 2015 and what it means to use technology to maintain the connection amongst loved ones that many people believe we are losing.
