The Top 5

Without a shared calendar app, our relationships usually end up being the first casualties of a packed calendar, with misaligned diaries and conflicting appointments forming some sizable barriers to spending quality time with our partners. 

There’s an easy way to make sure your relationship stays top of the agenda – and it’s through your calendar. No, not the one that’s been hanging on your wall for 6 months too long, the one on your phone. 

We don’t usually look at our calendar apps as relationship apps, but they are. Yes, the best shared calendar apps make it easy to share schedules, but the most important thing they do is keep you connected to the people that matter most.

We’re going to shine a light on the muddy world of shared app calendars for couples. Here are some of the best apps to help you get on the same page with your partner.

1. Cupla

If the foundation of love still rests on a framework of connection and time, then making time for your partner is pretty big business. The trouble is, time is a tricky beast and has a habit of getting away from us. Good thing, Cupla has you covered.

Cupla is a shared calendar app made specifically for couples, a quality that makes it one of the strongest apps on the market. With some pretty impressive features and an ultra-sleek, polished design, it promises to help you get the most out of your relationship by making it easier to find the time to be with your partner.  How? By syncing both you and your partner’s multiple calendars and putting them all in one place so you get a single view of your partner’s schedule alongside your own. 

Now, for the app’s pièce de résistance. Cupla goes one step further than other shared calendar apps. It analyses your shared calendar and suggests prime times for dates and shared events between you and your partner’s busy schedules. It’s a great way to avoid those pesky scheduling conflicts and stay in sync with your partner, as well as all the other things you have going on.

The app also helps you out with anniversary and birthday reminders, so you never miss an important date ever again. It’s shared calendar sits amongst an incredible suite of features to help you manage your relationship, meaning it’s a one-stop shop for all of your needs as a couple.

The Final Verdict

One of the app’s most refreshing qualities is that unlike some of the other shared calendars on the market, it doesn’t try to be all things to all people. It is built and designed specifically for couples, by couples. This allows the app to do the best job it can to create a rich and effective experience for you and your partner. The app’s design, user experience and features are well refined and a joy to use. 

Not only that but there’s a lot to look forward to with Cupla. The team is working on even more relationship enhancement features like date suggestions, gift hints and to even being able to book dates straight through the app adding to its already epic feature list. Convinced? Download it here.

Stand Out Features

  • Compatible with all the calendars on your device – plus Google and Outlook
  • Schedule quality time together and see shared events in Cupla and your regular calendar
  • Choose what you do and don’t want to share with your partner
  • Get reminders about important dates like birthdays and anniversaries
  • Use the To-Do feature to link To-Do lists with your calendar to keep track and organise your life as a couple
  • Get helpful date hints and reminders
  • Set a cadence around date night and set date goals to help you spend more time together
  • Compatible with Android devices and Apple devices
  • Cupla day view is absolutely the best of any of the apps we reviewed
  • Writes any shared events back to your device calendar (no others do that)
  • Clean, easy to use design and user experience
  • Add unlimited 3rd party calendars where other apps either offer a limited number or don’t offer this at all

2. TimeTree

timetree

Time tree is one of the most comprehensive shared calendar apps on the market. Whether you’re a new couple or on your fourth kid and counting, TimeTree is an app that makes organising your life – and the other lives most closely connected to it a lot easier. 

Time tree isn’t just built for couples but for friends, families, and even colleagues in small teams who need to stay organized. It’s like having your living room calendar, work calendar and social calendar in the palm of your hand, with features that allow you to share and leave notes and comments to chat about upcoming events. 

The Final Verdict

While TimeTree might have a long feature list they don’t exactly execute them all very well. It’s a clear case of quality over quantity. In trying to please the masses the app ends up not doing a great job refining its offering leading to a complicated user experience and messy interface.

Stand Out Features

  • The “Full Month” view shows upcoming events at-a-glance and by the month.
  • You can create shared notes and lists around a specific event.
  • It lets you share any events on WhatsApp or any other chat app easily.
  • It also works as a great To-Do list app as well
  • Additional features like feeds and memos.
  • Create multiple shared calendars in one app

3. Between

Between

According to the New Yorker, “If Facebook is a high-school reunion and Twitter is a cocktail party, Between is staying home with a boxed set and ordering pizza.”This is the one Calendar app whose animated heart wielding bunnies are just as strong as its more practical features. 

Between is a Korean app that allows couples to track anniversaries and plan schedules together. The app acts as a social media platform solely for you and your partner, allowing you to exchange voice, video and text messages, share photo albums and post notes on a memo board.

Between’s stand out feature is its Memory Box, an online keepsake depository for photos, notes and the kind of sweet nothings we used to send our partners before things like texts and Facebook Messenger. 

The Final Verdict

With perhaps too much focus on cutesy graphics, the app feels somewhat immature for more serious couples feeling more at home on a 15 year old’s mobile phone than couples on the older end of the spectrum. For anyone who just wants a shared calendar they can use with their partner, the rest of the clutter can feel a little too overwhelming.

Stand Out Features

  • Memory box feature acts as a personalised keepsake box for your relationship memories
  • Sending video, text and voice messages to your partner
  • More personalised features like stickers and gifs
  • Leave notes and messages for your partner

4. Couplete

couplete

If you couldn’t guess from the name, Couplete is a shared calendar app made for couples on the younger side of the spectrum. Characterised by its anime-style cutesy imagery, its defining feature is a timeline that keeps track of top memories through photos.

Couplete also has a few features thrown in to help build your relationship too, particularly for couples who are in long-distance relationships. The app also allows you to private message your partner, create bucket lists, and send romantic love letters. Who says romance is dead?

As well as features like private messages, shared to-do lists and relationship reminders, it also has tools like quizzes that help you learn more about your partner to help you connect on a deeper level. 

The Final Verdict

While the app has some interesting features, it feels more like a messaging app than a shared calendar app. With more than its fair share of cheesy stock photos and poor font colour choices on busy backgrounds, the app becomes a little too much of an assault on the senses giving a poor user experience. 

Stand Out Features

  • Private instant messaging between you and your partner
  • A Wishlist to create join bucket lists
  • “Love letters”
  • A daily counter that reminds you how long you’ve been together.

5. Raft

raft

Raft is the shared calendar app for couples whose social lives are just as important as their relationships, describing itself as the Calendar app for couples and close friends. It goes a touch further than just allowing you to connect your calendar to your partner’s by allowing you to extend it to your close friends too.

The app also makes it easy to personalise the calendar by adding images and GIFs to whatever you’re planning, so you can make it abundantly clear that a crying cat emoji is a perfect response to a calendar update. One thing that stands out about this app is the social element. Similar to Facebook and Instagram, you can get comments and likes from your followers.

The Final Verdict

Raft is less a shared calendar app for couples and more a social calendar for people that spend a lot of time with their friends. While that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it can get a little overwhelming for couples who just want an app to help them get their diaries in sync. Where apps like Cupla do well in creating a rich experience for couples, the couples aspect of the app gets lost in the noise.

Stand Out Features

  • Events from other calendars are visible in Raft
  • Share events with your friends and family
  • Chat within calendar events, so you don’t have to dig through Facebook feeds
  • Importing and sharing events from Facebook, Apple, Calendar Google Calendar and outlook.

So there you have it. Your comprehensive guide to the best shared calendar apps on the market.
