Smartphone apps can help keep track of money, schedule meetings and appointments and remind us when we need to buy milk. For many people, mobile phones are even helping them with their love lives.
Obviously, anything that keeps people talking is good for romance — and if it isn’t, that isn’t a promising sign for the relationship anyway — but conversations aren’t the only way that smartphones can foster romance.
Popular location apps such as iOS’s Friends Finder or Google Latitude are good ways of finding out where someone is located.
