I have an app for that!
“I have an app for that!” I think we’ve been over-reliant on app these days. Tell me how many days you can go without checking your phone for any social networking update or opening an app?
Go to restaurants, cafe’s and wherever else and you’ll find a group of people sharing the same table and not talking to each other because they’re both busy with their phones! Once, I was even greeted on Twitter first before that someone actually recognized my presence at an event. So I told the person, “Hello! I’m here! Hope you can greet me live in the flesh too!” Don’t get me wrong though. I AM thankful for apps. If not for them, I’d have to open my laptop each time I have to check something or I won’t be able to talk to my friends and relatives in other countries as much as I want to. (Oh, the phone bill!) But there’s a danger point: the illusion of having an active social life, the the sense of entitlement one gets from all those statistics & numbers and of course, wasting one’s productive years in front of a bright screen.
I should definitely spend more time away from my phone these days.
