I will be the first to tell you and my husband would agree that as a mother I have so much going on, so many things to organize that often the person left behind in the dust is my husband. Often my husband has to reel me back in so I focus not only on work, blogging, and kids but on our relationship. I just posted the other day about my lack of romance, and how my husband is the romantic one, so sometimes it is hard for me to breathe and just enjoy my hubby.
Twyxt realizes that sometimes couple just need a special “us” place. I place or space where the only important thing is you and your significant other. I recently downloaded the Twyxt app from the iTunes store. This is an app for two, a place where you and one other can share all kinds of things but it is only between the two of you. Your own calendar, text messaging, photos, and more.
I absolutely LOVE the idea of this app. One thing my husband and I do often is text. We use that mode of communication usually throughout the day. Sometimes we may need to ask each other a favor, find out the plan for the evening, or send a sweet message. I especially love the last one. It is amazing how things have changed over the years, from letters to phone calls and email to text.
While my husband and I definitely compliment each other I have to admit if I feel off the face of the earth, or maybe just left unexpectedly for a work function, he would have no idea if there was appointments or activities to go to with the kids. I usually handle all of the planning myself. With the Twyxt app there is one calendar that the both of you can access. I love that I can add all the appointments onto the calendar in Twyxt and my husband can access it right from his own phone.
I can put in when it is, if I want a reminder and notes. The notes are important because I can leave the doctors name and number in case my husband needed to unexpectedly deal with this appointment on his own. We can also put in our calendar things we may schedule without each other. For example if my husband decides to go golfing with a co-worker he can put it in the calendar and send it to me and I will then know not to make any plans for the both of us.
One problem my husband and I have with photos is for some reason when I send a photo via text message he gets a tiny little square and can’t see the photo. I love sending photos as a way of communicating. The other day I bought us a big piece of carrot cake so I sent him a photo with the caption “Dessert”. Often in the morning my daughter and I will snap a photo and tell him to have a great day, like this one I sent the other day.
You can also create list, you know like a “honey-do” list. However this list you can share with each other and both of you can complete the list together. You can create several different list. Creating a grocery list would be a great list to start and both of us could add too so when we do our weekly grocery shopping on Sunday we won’t forget a thing!
In addition to being able to text message each other the Twyxt app is just fun. I noticed after sending a photo when I went back into calendar mode the calendar displayed the photo I sent for the day. I can see this calendar will fill up fast!
You can set your mood, send an urgent message, or if both are getting into a heated discussion or need a break you can “freeze” or call a time out.
What is Twyxt?
The word “Twyxt” (a shortening of the old English “Betwixt” meaning between two) is an ode to the days of pen & ink; when letters were sealed with a kiss and delivered by hand to a delighted lover. These letters were cherished and kept safely in boxes, and would later serve to comprise the story of a meaningful love. Twyxt aims to carry this tactile experience of love into the digital age, and create new ways for that story to be written.
Currently Twyxt is available to download on the iPhone and will be coming to Android soon. You can
