eBay asked two hundred people to live without apps for four days and then asked them to report on the quality of their lives four days after their app-using rights had been restored. The results, represented in the infographic below, show that smartphone owners absolutely love their apps.
According to the experiment results, one-third of all participants gave up and could not make it four days without their apps. Those that made it through the trial felt “powerless and uninformed,” “naked and unprotected.” Across the board, a large number of participants were happier, more productive and calmer when they got their apps back. You can check out all the details in the infographic below.
