Back in the day, love was such a simple concept. A love note passed in class, those silly little paper fortune teller games or the name of your one true love written on the side of your sneakers.
Now here we are in the future (holy crap) where flying cars and robotic companions, while not entirely mainstream just yet, are a total reality. And love? Well, it’s so much more complicated than just checking yes or no in a box.
When I first started LDR Magazine in 2010, there wasn’t much available to us long distance lovers in the way of tools and resources that we could use to help us out. It was as if our relationships were leaps and bounds ahead of the world around us & finding USEFUL tools & ideas was like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
Fast forward just 8 years later and technology (and the world) have finally caught up. Everyday we’re inundated with thousands of apps, hundreds of tools, software & websites all ready and waiting for us to reach out and touch them. And honestly, if you’re anything like me, it can be SO incredibly overwhelming.
That’s why I’m so in love with this app called Pixelboard.
Pixelboard is simple; it is a whiteboard app that allows two people to write, doodle, draw and interact together in real-time.
There are so many great uses for this app, but what I love most about it is the fact that it provides a simple and easy way to interact together while you’re apart:
1. You can create a giant message board together with messages, thoughts and notes that accumulate over time. The app will save those messages & you can even share them on social media.
2. You can play old-school paper and pen games together in real time like xox, tic-tac-toe, hangman or pictionary. You can do it while you G-hangout or Skype & it can become one of those simple joys of just being together.
3. You can draw together, especially if you and your s/o are artistically inclined. Then, save them to your photos for viewing later.
Pixelboard is available for free on the Apple Store, for iOS devices. Click here to grab it for yourself!
