1A10 Networks Report Shows How Dependent People Are on Mobile Apps
It’s no surprise that the use of smartphones and the applications that run on them have become pervasive in modern society. The A10 Networks Application Intelligence Report (AIR) released May 23 provides some interesting insights into how deeply dependent people have become on constant access to mobile devices. The report found that 42 percent of respondents indicated that they can’t live without their mobile apps. Going a step further 46 percent of people said that they would rather lose their pants than their smartphones.
