Man, I really have to argue the other side of the coin on this one. Whether it’s an iPhone, an Android device, or any other smartphone, everyone gets out of it a different experience. There is no reason to have Facebook installed on your phone. Why not leave that for when you get to your computer?
I personally have notifications turned off for every single app on my phone except text messages. My phone never gets in the way of my productivity. If anything, it is an extension of my workflow, as it allows me to scan documents quickly, type up reminders or notes, and access files from anywhere.
If I’m in class and the guy next to me has a Surface and he’s on reddit while the professor is lecturing, it’s not the device’s fault; the guy behind me could be using an iPad and taking notes. From smartphones to tablets or any other gadgets, it comes down to our own use.
It is very irresponsible to blame a device for our own bad habits.
