Smartphone apps take over my life.

Smartphones are all the rage nowadays. It is hard to escape the lure of phones that do EVERYTHING. Most new phones that are released have features that mimic that of a laptop. For example, sending and receiving emails, browsing the web, playing games and writing notes.

The most annoying, yet addictive feature of smartphones is gaming applications. Man, these apps are so bad for you, but oh so good. I have the iPhone 6 plus after upgrading my previous device, and I have to confess, the vast majority of my applications are games.

From casual games like Candy Crush Saga and Bingo Blitz, to time management games like Restaurant Story and everything in between. It is super easy to get sucked in to them.

I think I need rehab....

Do you play games on your phone too? Or am I just a big kid? LOL

I got an LG F60. It's not bad and has 4G so it's nice and fast. (But I really got it because I got a free 43" plasma TV as part of the contract deal)

For the longest time the only game I had on my phone was solitaire. Then I discovered Word Chums. When my wife saw me playing Word Chums she asked me how to get games on her phone. I showed her. Now she has four or five games while I still have my two.

I don't play games, usually because I know I can addicted to them but never, ever get good at them, so many hours wasted on nothing at all!

I used to play Candy crush a lot but I try and avoid them now, I was finding them a huge time waster!
