According to the Pew Research Center, “nearly two-thirds of Americans are now smartphone owners.” The society in which we live in is becoming more and more mobile each day. Throughout the past several years, countless smartphone applications have been introduced to the marketplace. These apps serve all different functions and many make our daily life much easier.
