Woman Holding SmartphoneWhat’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning? Brush your teeth? Take a shower?

According to mobile testing firm SOASTA, it’s none of these. A new 10-city survey of the mobile phone habits of smartphone owners has revealed that 84% of us check an app the first thing in the morning.

The study shows that New Yorkers are especially tech addicted – 92% of city residents start their day by firing up a smartphone. Los Angeles found itself at the bottom of the list, with only 75% of smartphone owners checking an app first thing.

What exactly are most of us doing with our phones so early? Checking email is the most popular morning activity (67%), followed by checking the weather (45%) and signing on to social media accounts like Facebook (40%). At the bottom of the list: Only 3% of us check our online dating profiles. Love makes the world go round, sure, but it can wait until after that first cup of coffee.
