Since the world came to a standstill in 2020 and we were encouraged to ‘’come together by staying apart’’ humans opted to rely on their everyday communications through the medium of technology like never before and discovered how to use the technology available to them in a whole new way. Mobile app creation increased significantly across various industries such as healthcare, remote working aids, education, and entertainment. However, due to the open-door policy as seen by both Apple and Google, there was a plethora of very basic apps created which promised big things, however, many of these apps had a high download rate, but little usage due to their basic or unpleasant interface and low levels of usability. One may wonder why these apps were created, and the answer to this is data mining.
When you download an app, you agree to the terms, conditions and permissions of the app, all buttons which we automatically click ‘agree’ to, without knowing the real implications of the acceptance, however, people are now starting to ask this question, and ultimately, the real applicative cost of these ‘free’ apps.
