Mobile Users Can't Function Without Their Apps

Multitasking  35% of global users access between six and 10 apps on any given day.

How useless would you be without your mobile apps? Would you be able to find your way from home to work? Could you somehow maintain a relationship with your significant other? Would you be able to work at all? Believe it or not, a notable number of smartphone and tablet users confess that they wouldn't be able to do any of these things, according to a recent global survey from Apigee, which produces an application programming interface platform for enterprises and developers. (Makes you wonder how we existed before mobile tech, huh?) How would they manage if they had to live without these apps? Survey participants measure the amount of time they could last in terms of hours, as opposed to days. On a more serious note, the findings reveal that far too many users are connecting to their mobile apps while driving, which traffic-safety experts consider very risky behavior. More than 760 mobile users in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Spain took part in the research. Results in the summary are broken down by country.
