Are you "addicted" to any apps? If yes, which, and what do you make of that.

I'm wondering what this community thinks about apps which make you addicted to them. Do you consider this to be a beneficial feature or should apps refrain from navigating these waters?

I'll start! I consider myself to be addicted to TikTok, I wake up every day to see it, and go late into the night just stuck watching my screen. I do this because I love the app and the content, but is this actually a good thing? I constantly tell people "I really love TikTok and that's the reason why I wouldn't recommend it".

Definitely Spotify - now I cannot imagine how I was living without it. I don't have to think about the next song - just start the dedicated playlist. It's really useful during work when I need music as a background. Right now, I don't see any disadvantage in this addiction.

@asia_jachula I agree with you! Spotify doesn't require you to be watching your screen all the time, which makes the addiction a positive thing imo :D

I jump around from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Linkedin, each for a different purpose. I also use Duolingo on a daily basis, and play around with Nonogram.

Youtube is very distracting. You constantly open and scroll through the tape in search of new videos. I periodically delete the application

I recently discovered CARROT Weather . Never been more interested in atmospheric pressure and UV indices in my life. Wouldn't say I'm addicted, but it's the first thing I open when I pick up my phone now. Weather with a personality is how I'd describe it :P
