Hi I have a few questions wasn't sure where to post it but it's related to market research for a side project I am doing for a course I am on:

Can you answer a few questions please?

1. Do you use phone APPS? Which are your top 3 and how often do you use each one?

2. When you're out and about and you need a breather/to rest what do you usually do?

3. Do you ever go to the park? What do you do in the park? Why do you go?

4. (For those who work full-time 9-5) What do you do at Lunch times? Where do you go? Where do you eat?

5. (For those who don't work) What do you do when you want to get out the house but you don't want to spend any money?

6. Do you use map-finder functionalities to look for where you go? Which one do you use if you use it?

7. Those who don't use APPS. Do you use your internet browser to go online for anything whilst you're out? What do you go online on your phone for?

Thanks!

        l use my phone as a watch, well have to since my real watch is broken, and apart from the headphones not working, (sound comes out of one ear, since the connector isn't touching correctly) it is in perfect working order.

        Fits in my pocket also, not like the oversized smart phones, l would snap those things in two, or monkey grip them all day til l drop it, (probably explains why people aimlessly stare into it while walking, at least til they run into something.

              any reason the cops can extract revenue from people for non violent or non criminal activities they will ..

              have to make the general population look as stupid as possible so you can fine them any way you can to keep them safe from themselves ..

              easier solution is to install apps on the phone that warn you when you are about to walk into stuff.. but then again.. tens of millions of people or hundreds of millions around the world.. its easy to pick out the extreme cases of accidents ..

              and it only speeds the need to develop autonomous vehicles of any size

              and to clue you in on what i meant .. is people who start out talking about everyone being zombies staring int their phone screen.. will usually then shift into some conspiracy based topics .. or go on and on like the world is getting worse and somehow it was better 40 or 50 years ago.. when people /kid had more respect and used their imaginations ..

              I usually have an Oh really for that .. as most people who complain like that also started drinking and doing drugs when they where 12..

              anyway.. understanding how human filtering systems work.. you probably look around and only notice the people when they are looking down at their cellphones when you are out in the real world .. or those rare times you are out.. now in a owrld where people have the choice where they can sit their bored or wait for some stranger to come up so they can talk about sports they don't really care about..

    Maybe there should be some kind of integrated phone application that detects motion and stops working when it knows you're walking or driving. That might save lives
