7 apps and gadgets perfect for long-distance relationships

Love knows no distance with these!

Published

Being in a long distance relationship isn’t easy — I’d know, I’m actually in one. But, despite the miles, the time difference, and the long stretches of time apart, you make it work if you think the relationship is worth it.

Now, before I turn into a big cheeseball professing my undying commitment to my LDR, let me share a big tip: Utilize technology! These days, there are so many apps and gadgets that can help make your love felt, no matter how far away you are.

Dreamdays app

Counting down the days to a date, an anniversary, or even your next trip together can be tough, exciting, and excruciating at the same time. Especially when you’re in an LDR, it takes a big amount of patience. This app allows for a more interactive way of going through the days and hyping up your next meeting!

Download it on Android or iOS.

HEY bracelet

With this bracelet, there is no need to hunger for your lover’s touch on days you two are apart. The HEY Bracelet sends “real human touch” to the other person in spite of the distance between them. Using haptic technology, the matching bracelets mean you can squeeze your boyfriend’s hand wherever both of you are in the world.

Rabbit

“Wouldn’t it be nice if there’s an app that would let us watch our shows together, even when we’re apart?” asked my boyfriend before I left for another stretch of a few months apart. The good news is, that app already exists. Rabbit allows you to watch your favorite shows at the same time, no matter how far apart you are.

Download it on Android or iOS.

Pillow Talk

Because cuddling is everything and it’s also one of the biggest things people in LDRs miss out on! Pillow Talk is a bracelet and speaker combo that will allow you to hear your boyfriends heartbeat in real time, and vice versa. The bracelet tracks and sends your heartbeat to the tiny speaker that can be placed under a pillow. All of a sudden, it’s as if you’re on your lover’s chest falling asleep.

LokLok app

Originally, people in LDRs don’t have the luxury of leaving each other cute notes every day. LokLok is an app that changes that. It allows people to share a phone lock screen that one can doodle on and the other will be able to see it on their own phone. Imagine all the love notes you can send your partner!

Download for Android.

This ring will literally remind you of your significant other by showing you their actual, real-time heartbeat. The HB ring is the best type of personalized jewelry and it will definitely keep your heart closer to your loved one.

LoveNuts

Distance can’t and shouldn’t stop couples from all the fun and lovin’ to be had! LoveNuts is a connected vibrator which allows your partner, no matter how far he is, to remotely control the device. That’s what I call real long-distance relations. 😉

Nomad launches Ultra Orange cases for iPhone 14 Pro

Discount for pre-orders!

Published

on

It’s never too late to accessorize for your new iPhone 14 Pro. With Apple’s price tags still as high as they are, it’s important to protect your investment for the next few years. Unfortunately, a lot of rugged cases don’t prioritize fashion. If you’re looking for the perfect blend of glitz and protection, look no further than Nomad and its new Ultra Orange lineup.

The new lineup of cases — built specifically for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max — are delectably minimalist. The orange polycarbonate frame with a PET backplate can both protect your new phone and dazzle while on the go. Plus, durable TPU bumpers saves your hardware from drops of up to 15 feet.

Meanwhile, dual lanyard slots will add convenience if you need both hands for something else. Also, if you’ve bought into Apple’s wireless charging system, the Nomad case is still compatible with the brand’s MagSafe products.

To complement your phone, the collection also has an Ultra Orange sports band for the 45mm Apple Watch and Watch Ultra. The band is both lightweight and durable to provide comfort and durability throughout the day.

The Nomad Ultra Orange iPhone 14 Pro case will retail for US$ 49.95. Meanwhile, the Ultra Orange Sport Band will retail for US$ 59.95. Both are limited edition and will start shipping in November. Pre-orders will grab an additional percent discount.
