But the feeling of app dependency varies globally. Fully 18 percent of the French say they could not order dinner without an app, while people in America (16 percent) and the UK (8 percent) feel more app independent in that area. Twenty-three percent in Spain say they couldn’t find a date without apps, but only five percent of Americans believe they would lose this ability. On giving up apps forever, 85 percent admit they would actually rather give up drinking water than delete all of their apps, while a further nine percent say it would be easier for them to invent a new source of energy than delete all of the apps on their smartphones.

Apigee, the API company, recently announced the findings of its 2013 Mobile App Behavior survey of over 760 smartphone owners across France, Germany, Spain, the UK and U.S., conducted online in February by uSamp. “The findings of the study show that people all over the world are becoming increasingly intertwined with their mobile apps and are demanding more from them," said Chet Kapoor, Apigee CEO.
