5 Ways Your Mobile Phone Can Make You A Better Lover

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, surely love is in the air and we are all getting in touch with our inner cupid.  While we may not be wandering around equipped with a sling full of heart tipped arrows, we do have another tool in hand that can be used to spread the love – our mobile phones! You may already think your smartphone is smart, but did you know it can work wonders on your relationship with that significant other?

Here are 5 Ways Your Mobile Phone Can Make You A Better Lover:

5. Text Sweet Nothings in His/Her Ear – Text messages are a great way to let your love know you are thinking of them, anytime, and by definition, an SMS message has to be short and sweet.  There are few easier ways to bring a smile to that someone special’s face than to send them an unexpected “I <3 U!” or “U R Beautiful” or a simple “Thinking of you… right now…

4. Send A  Wallpaper or Ringtone – We love to personalize our phones with images and sounds that mean something special to us, so why not share the love by sending your sweetheart a Romantic Ringtone or Whimsical Wallpaper that will make them think of you every time they look at their phone or get a call or message.  Myxer makes it easy to find just the right mobile content and use “Send to Friend” to share it with the one(s) you love.

3. Use “Vibrate” For A Neck Massage – We all enjoy a good neck massage from our partner.  Next time you are offering up a bit of manual stress relief, surprise them with some added good vibrations from your phone.

2. Send A Video Or Image Of Yourself – Sometimes we forget that we are almost always walking around with a camera and camcorder in our pockets.  It takes just a moment to snap a picture or record a video message and send it to the object of your affection.  Be creative.  Hold up a piece of paper with a handwritten sign saying “I Love You.”  Sing a few bars of his/her favorite song in a video.  Send a picture of flowers, or a place you pass that means something special to you both.  (FRIENDLY WARNING: Don’t abuse the ease of sending images and video by sharing something inappropriate or that you will likely one day regret…)

1. And, of course, the number one way your mobile phone can make you a better lover…. TURN IT OFF when you are with your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse and make them, not your phone, the object of both your attention and your affection!

Do you have more tips on how you use your phone for romance?  Please share them in the comments!  And with or without your phone, have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

And you can start using your phone to be a better lover by sending this to someone special:

BoomBox Report 2010 Year In Review: Invasion of the Androids!

The latest edition of Myxer’s BoomBox Report takes a look back at the trends of 2010 and comes away with with a clear winner: Google’s Android OS. As Myxer’s traffic from smartphone users continues to grow, the most dramatic increases were from Android devices. Last year Myxer published a map of the U.S. showing which states were dominated by the  iPhone versus those states dominated by Android phones based on Myxer’s database of registered users, and 2010 saw a clear shift of many states from the iPhone to the Android camp.  According to BoomBox,

“During 2010 Myxer saw visits from the Android OS grow from 12% in December 2009 to a massive 40% by December 2010. As to the State of Affairs for 2010, Android spread to dominance in 26 States by December 2010, knocking the iPhone down to just 17 States from 37 the year before. Apple wasn’t the only one to be pushed back by the Android invasion. In December 2010 Android surpassed BlackBerry as the leading smartphone in terms of visits to Myxer’s mobile site, with visits from Android devices growing an impressive 243% over the course of 2010, while visits from BlackBerry handsets declined by 23%.”

Android States versus iPhone States

Perhaps the most notable shift affecting the rapid growth of the Android OS was the sheer number of types of Android phones in the marketplace.  As BoomBox reports,

“With manufacturers large and small leaping onto the Android bandwagon, many with multiple flavors of Android handsets, we saw an army like influx of Android phones in the marketplace.  At the end of 2009, we counted only 10 Android handsets visiting Myxer.  By the end of 2010 the Android troops had grown to 101 different Android OS devices visiting Myxer, with 80 different Android devices downloading content from Myxer in December 2010 alone.”

Android Hanset Mix
