85% of Smartphone Users Would Rather Give up Water Than Mobile Apps
How addicted have you become to your mobile apps? Do you use one to wake you up in the morning — map your route to work or plan your day? Worse, do you think you wouldn't be able to do these things without using an app? Remember, there still are old-fashioned computers that help with some of these tasks.
In a survey on mobile app behavior, 82% of those who responded said there are critical apps they can’t go without — not even for one day. Those include email (57%), Facebook (41%) and alarm clock apps (31%).
Apigee, the API company, released the results of its 2013 Mobile App Behavior survey of smartphone owners. They asked 762 smartphone owners across the U.S., UK, Germany, France and Spain about their app usage and dependence.
