SUPER INTERESTING DATES INSPIRED BY APPS
November 16, 2017
There are many places to seek inspiration for date night, but have you ever thought about using an app?! We recently happened upon the idea when we heard about BetterHalf
, a fun application that allows couples to compete against each other by collecting points doing everyday chores, which can then be used to ‘purchase’ favours from one another. Go have a look, it looks like tons of fun!
This got us thinking – an app doesn’t necessarily have to be about dating to actually inspire a date. So, we challenged ourselves to find a few interesting local mobile applications that could be used to facilitate a cool date right here in good old RS of A.
Here are our top picks:
GO ON A NATURE-INSPIRED TREASURE HUNT
If you and your partner like the outdoors, but don’t know too much about South Africa’s indigenous foliage, you’re in for a treat! Some clever folks just developed The Tree App
This smart-device application lets you identify and learn a great deal about our 980 larger indigenous tree species, as well as 135 alien invasive trees. Download it, pack a backpack and head to your closest green space to enjoy an eco-friendly geek-o-thon.
EXPLORE LIKE A PRO WITH VOICE TOURS
is another local app that is set to change the digital tourism landscape. This innovative application lets you listen to self-guided voice tours of landmarks and places of interest all around the world.
This includes everything from wine farms and small towns like Matjiesfontein, to graffiti tours in Johannesburg and Kirstenbosch hikes. In short, you can have a look at what’s on offer in your region, plug in your headphones and enjoy a fully narrated tour at your own pace. How awesome?
These are just a two of the apps you can use to inspire date ideas for couples in South Africa. Do you use apps to spice up your date life? Share the love! We’d love to know how you keep things interesting around the house.
