Messaging App

    Hey all,

     

    Kind of an odd question that I figured I would ask the group here.  I’m wanting my wife and I to grow in our communication during the new year, as we’re on somewhat different schedules when it comes to our devotional life.  So I was thinking about getting a messaging that would be just for us.  Idea is that it would be somewhat private/protected (so we can be a little more private in our communication), and I would love for there to be some sort of “auto delete” function (basically it deletes the message after a week or so) so that we could send photos of our daily devotion and not have to delete a bunch of photos a few months later.

    Any recommendations?

      First I’d like to say that the type of App you’re looking for is SnapChat…But bear in mind…nothing is ever really gone. Even after you’ve snapped a photo, the server picks it up even though its “deleted” off your phone. Also…I’m not really sure I as a married man would want an app on my phone that auto deletes…it really gives the appearance to my DW that  I have something to hide. Yes, the argument can me made that it’s for “you two”…but it can also be a red flag if not explained properly. My wife and I send things all the time via text and if we don’t want it, I spend 10 minutes going through my gallery and delete them.

        Hi Hubz,

        Thanks for posting…You can check out this thread below which posed the same question:

        Some folks of the thread recommended the app “Couple”. 

        Another option is the app “Viber.”
