We all know that spending too much time glued to our phones is not good for us, but of course some apps are better for our mood than others. A new study conducted by the website Time Well Spent and the app Movement has attempted to analyse which apps are worst for us in terms of our happiness.

The study surveyed 200,000 iPhone users by tracking their time on screen and then asking them how much of that time spent was happy or unhappy. The data suggested that dating, social-media and gaming apps were those that made people the least happy. Grindr came out on top, with Tinder, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat all featured too.
