SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 -- Right on time for Valentine's Day, Life of Two, Inc., today announced the release of Twyxt, an app for couples to capture memories while they share, have fun and get things done. The free iPhone app, which includes a direct messenger, a shared calendar and shared lists, is available now on the iTunes App Store at this link.

Twyxt provides a private space for couples on iPhones to focus on their most important relationship. Couples can use Twyxt wherever they are to overcome distractions from their career and personal commitments to share whatever is on their minds, including their mood, photos, lists and more.

One of Twyxt's key features is its powerful shared calendar. Entering photos and messages automatically creates a distinctive journal of a couple's life together, making it easy to capture and look back on special times and fleeting memories.

Other Twyxt features bring a romantic touch to mobile communications, including:

Private Messaging: An uncluttered space for couples to keep their dialogue and private notes separate from all the other distractions on their iPhone. Special messaging modes include Urgent and Freeze for moments when couples need a playful time out. •Mood Sharing: Twyxt's specially designed emoticons put a personal spin on your emotional state. •Shared Calendar: A private appointment center for making plans between the two of you. Photos and text messages are automatically added to create a shared diary of your relationship. •Shared Lists: Create, Add and Complete lists together in real time. Now you can get things done together.

Twyxt was conceived by Life Of Two co-Founder Roman Weishäupl when he noticed that his girlfriend was keeping a journal of their text messages. Roman's experience inspired the company to develop a dedicated digital space where couples could focus on their personal story using smartphone technology.

"Twyxt is a private, intimate and useful app for capturing and celebrating a couples shared life together," said Tyson Verstraete, Life Of Two Co-Founder and CEO. "Twyxt cuts through the social noise so couples can focus on the story they are writing together every day about their most important relationship."

Life of Two is composed of a strong international business and engineering team, and works with a team of well-known mentors and advisors that includes thought leader Chairman of Federated Media John Battelle and Jeffrey Hayzlett, Global Business Celebrity and bestselling author of Running The Gauntlet.

"When you travel as much as I do, the peace of mind that your online conversations with your loved one are private is invaluable," said Jeffrey Hayzlett. "My schedule has me on the road over 250 days a year, and Twyxt allows me to stay in touch with my wife over long distances in a unique, fun and personal way."
