The question is, can you create a successful user centric product without it being addicting?
The only “non addicting” apps on my phone are those which provide a service (banking, setting, camera, etc). Everything else is only there because it has a value to me in one way or another. Most of which is entertainment/procrastination.
Exactly, That's one should aim for. But as you said it hard as hell.
if there is any legislation regarding app addiction etc, it will have to be softly worded, there is not quantifiable measure for it.
Soft words and no quantifiable measures is a recipe for terrible laws. Law is a sledgehammer and will be used as such.
