Fear is the path to the Dark Side

According to Computer Weekly, Brits waste millions on idle mobile phone apps. The report claims that UK smart-phone users spend 747 million on applications that are used once and then forgotten about.

The report quotes Mark Pearson, managing director of MyVoucherCodes, the site that carried out the study that came up with the numbers:

As cool as having an application that turns your handset into a light sabre is, think about whether you are going to be using it beyond the initial download – if not, it is probably money that has not been particularly well spent.

An app that turns your phone into a lightsabre is like insurance. You would hope not to need it, but it would be invaluable if you ever do run into a Sith lord.
