One app in particular, Couples Counseling, seems to be the leader of the pack. It allows you to communicate directly with a therapist and ask questions. You can also instant message your partner through the app to help create topics of conversation. This is supposed to improve communication, but we're pretty sure it will also serve as a referee in the classic "he said/she said" arena.
Couples Counseling also allows you to browse general relationship tips, keep a notebook on the state of your relationship, and send predefined messages to your partner. That last one is super important, because we don't always choose the right words when we're in the thick of things.
What's so interesting about this app is that it means you don't have to be in the same room as your partner to get help. You can quite literally do it on your own time. It also means that couples counseling is now free — as an app, at least. This will definitely help some people through tough times in their love lives. But, we don't think it will eliminate fighting altogether — Dirty Dancing is that good a movie. (The New York Times)
