In an apps-rule-everything-around-us world, it’s hard to remember what banking, messaging and traveling, among other daily tasks would be like without your beloved tech tools. (Maybe not everyone, but a large percentage of smartphones users can relate.)

API company Apingee released results from its 2013 Mobile App Behavior survey of smartphone owners, revealing that the majority of respondents (85%) would rather go without water than their mobile apps. The survey also showed that 82% believe there are apps they can’t live without including email (57%), Facebook (41%) and alarm clock apps (31%).

Apingee polled 762 smartphone owners across American, the UK, Germany, Spain and France about their app usage and reliance.
