PAIRS DTR App Keeps Couples, Families, and Friends Connected through iPhone and Facebook

Weston, FL (February 24, 2010) — PAIRS Foundation today released a new iPhone® app that helps couples, parents, families, and friends stay connected — to each other — through their iPhone® or iPod touch and Facebook.

The app, called PAIRS DTR®, guides users through five steps that strengthen love relationships, from sharing appreciations to wishes, hopes and dreams.

“Confiding is the lifeblood of intimacy,” said Seth Eisenberg, President of the nonprofit PAIRS Foundation in Weston, Florida. “With our lives busier than ever, it’s important to stay actively connected to the people we love.”

PAIRS DTR App

PAIRS DTR for iPhone offers a five-step exercise to help couples, families, and friends stay connected.

PAIRS DTR, which stands for “Daily Temperature Reading,” guides users through a practical, step-by-step communication exercise to express appreciations, keep loved ones up-to-date, ask questions, confide concerns, and share wishes, hopes and dreams. Once users tap out their text in each area, they can post a DTR to a Facebook page or by e-mail and watch their relationship temperature rise.

Eisenberg said 30 years of research shows that communication is key to strong marriages and families. “We all need to know we’re appreciated and valued by the people we love,” he said. “PAIRS DTR for iPhone will help people who love technology and gadgets remember to stay connected with the people they love too.”

PAIRS DTR is currently available for free on iTunes.

    Especially since i’ve moved across the country for my job, I’ve very thankful for cell phones so I can call my family any time I want.
