According to a 2015 Gallup poll, 71 percent of smartphone users look at their phone on an hourly basis. Within that number 41 percent looked at their phone a few times an hour and 11 percent check their phone every few minutes. There is no denying that we are all addicted to our phones. Between social media, texts, and emails we literally always have a reason to have our phone in our hand. Why not throw some beauty apps into the mix?
