Adding on anxiety with technology

Bus apps on the mobile, great idea ? Maybe, sometimes.
Mine is the for-android version..... am not an IPhone fan.

On the one hand, it helps pick which route to take or which alternative is faster, on the other it can be stressful.

Once upon a time, we were able to take our time,  wait patiently, because we did not have expectations of  the bus arrival. But today with the bus app, before you reach the stop, you can check on the arrival. And so you time yourself and get ready to meet that time or fret you might miss it or curse that you have missed it.

Did we just add a pile of anxiety to our plate ? Seems like everything we do gets put on the clock and we help ourselves to it. Download any more 'helpful' apps lately?
