The App generation

The App generation

No matter what we pretend we like (yoga, Whole Foods, academia, Bjork) when it comes down to it, what most of us really like, is apps. Depressing as this factoid is, we each spend over 3000 hours a week on apps. That is unconfirmed, we pulled that figure out of thin air. But it’s probably true.

For example, Childline recently disclosed that they had received a record number of calls, around 8 a day, from children about gender dysmorphia and transgender issues. Switchboard still answers around 20,000 calls a year.
