Imagine waking up in the morning and being unable to take a step outside, imagine not being able to pop down to your local store or leave the house to visit family and friends. This is reality for those experiencing agoraphobia. The mere thought of leaving an individual's 'safe space' can result in a full blown panic attack.

Apple iPhone users have known for a while that the mobile assistant in their pocket can leave them baffled, insulted, and
Not only are its current users the most brand-loyal, the iPhone is the handset that people are most likely to recommend even if they don't own one. Samsung might have a clear lead over Apple when it comes to ownership, but it's level pegging when it comes to recommendations.
Within the world of mobile, many still see Apple as the leading name; the iPhone remains a synonym for "cool" and new apps are typically developed for its operating system before any other (with some never appearing in Android-compatible form at all).
