If you’re like most folks, you and your smartphone are glued at the hip. Personally, I use my iPhone for everything. Texting, checking the weather, browsing my Facebook feed, answering emails – you name it. It’s actually hard to remember a time when I didn’t use my iPhone to complete day-to-day tasks. Sad? Maybe. But this is the age we live in, and I know I’m not the only one who’s hooked. Research shows the average user picks up his or her smartphone 1,500 times per week! That’s a lot of screen time.
