They’re Designed To Be Addictive

Feedback Loops: Games often provide immediate rewards for accomplishments, which can stimulate the brain's reward centers and create a desire to continue playing. 

Daily Rewards: Some games have systems that reward users for logging in daily, encouraging habitual use.

Social Features: Many games have social components like leaderboards, multiplayer modes, or the ability to share achievements, which can create a sense of competition and community.

How Gaming Becomes Addictive

How Gaming Becomes Addictive

In-app Purchases: Many mobile games are free to download but offer in-app purchases that can enhance gameplay or speed up progress. These mechanics can create a sense of investment, making users more likely to continue playing and spending.

Endless Content: Games with continuous updates or "endless" mechanics, like infinite runners or match-three games, can keep users engaged for long periods.

Variable Rewards: Some games employ a system where rewards are unpredictable (similar to slot machines). This unpredictability can make the gaming experience more addictive.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
