How far away is your smartphone from you right now?
Mine is literally about 6 inches to my left. I can count how many times a day I look at my phone. Sometimes I need to know the time or the weather, and I use my phone to gather all this information. It’s so easy to have an entire digital world at your fingertips. Information is always available in a matter of seconds.
It’s funny when you imagine the world 50-75 years ago, the benchmark for the future has always been flying cars. Not phones. Ask anyone what they think the future will bring, the answer always seems to be flying cars. No one ever thought it would be a computer that would fit right in your pocket when you’re done with it.
With the rise of smartphones came apps.
I remember the first app I ever downloaded onto my first iPhone. I downloaded the Zippo app. You opened it and turned your phone over and a virtual Zippo lit up. It was crucial at shows in 2010. Nowadays I have a lot of apps that do all sorts of things for me. I would literally be lost without my cell phone.
But which apps do you hate directly? Apparently acc ElectronicsHub.org, every state has an app they absolutely can’t stand. And because Mainers love to do everything twice as hard, we had a tie for the app we hated the most. One of them was TikTok. That’s not really a surprise to me.
But Maine folks also despise the Amazon Prime Video app.
Not the shopping app, the video app. I personally have never used it on my phone so I don’t know why people hate it so much. Other New England states hate a bunch too. New Hampshire hates Whatsapp, Rhode Island hates Facebook, and Massachusetts hates SnapChat. And don’t bother with Tinder in Vermont.
Anyway, it’s crazy to think there’s enough data to support exactly which states hate which app. It’s crazy. Maybe I’ll just download Amazon Prime Video to see what everyone’s so mad about.
Let’s all cool our hatred of apps and laugh at real, true things about Maine that sound fake…
