Mobile Apps Are As Important As Breathing, Eating And Drinking

According to research, we Britons are dependent on our smartphones and apps - but also demonstrate careless mobile behaviour - much more so than our European neighbours.

The research, in fact, suggests that we are so addicted to and dependent upon our smartphones and applications that a quarter believe our mobile apps are equally as important as a basic human resources - such as eating, breathing and drinking.

Carried out my A10 AIR, the research found that Britons stood out over other countries in a number of ways:
“• Brits had the largest percentage of employees (41%) who use non-sanctioned apps at work. • Over half (55%) of Britons would rather lose their trousers than their smartphone. Germans were the opposite, displaying a much greater attachment to their trousers than their smartphone. 22% more Germans were prepared to lose their smartphone rather than their trousers.• More Britons claim to have had their mobile devices hacked - one in four (24%) - than any almost any other country globally - and more than any other European country.
• UK participants lose their mobile devices more frequently (24%) - or have them stolen (19%) - than the global average, and more than the rest of Europe.
• Nearly one in three (32%) of UK participants said cyber-attacks are something they just try not to think about - more so than the global or European average.
• Brits don’t think about security when downloading apps. The countries that think least about security risks are the UK and Japan." - Mobile App Development

When it comes to what we’d grab in an emergency, Britons showed an almost equal preference for their smartphone (38%) or a safe with important documents (37%), far higher than the number who would save family photos (19%). Only 6% of Britons would save a computer in the event of an emergency.

When compared to the rest of the world, Britons lagged far behind China in their attachment to their smartphone. 74% of Chinese people stated that they would save their smartphone in an emergency as compared to 38% of Britons and only 31% of Americans.
