So it is true. There are gremlins on my smartphone slowly draining it of life. According to Samuel Gibbs from The Guardian the Facebook app is draining your phone of life, well power anyway. He documents a short at home test that shows that the Facebook app is zapping life from his iphone, whereas the Facebook mobile site, accessed via Safari is both user friendly and not has demanding on your phone battery.
This news may not have made your day, as no lives were saved. But I am thankful that there are other interested people dedicating time to improving the tech tools we use and take for granted each day.
