The‌ ‌Five‌ ‌Best‌ ‌Apps‌ ‌For‌ ‌Your‌ ‌Commute


For many of us, the next few months will see us pick up our commute once again for the first time in many months. It will likely come as a bit of a culture shock, with the early rises and battles across town.


In the past, it's often been a case of getting your head down and sticking your head into a newspaper, a book, or, naturally, your mobile device. That's certainly going to be the case again, but things have moved on over the past 12 months, so what are the apps you should be using on your train ride into the office when you return?



There are tons of great games and trends that have come into play in recent months from the likes of bingo to top games such as Crossy Road and 80 Days, a puzzle in which you must follow the footsteps of Phileas Fogg and send him around the world in, you guessed it, 80 days.


Bingo has been a big hit in the last 12 months and the beauty of the rules associated with bingo is that there are different variants to suit different time periods, meaning you can enjoy the game if you have an hour's ride into town, or a quick 10 minute journey. Variants such as slingo bingo are great for the commute in as the timings are predetermined with players having a set number of spins, meaning you can even plan in how many games you will play.


Brain Training

Brain training apps have always been a hit with the commuter and that's going to continue, particularly as people look to pick up routines once again. Brain training offers a good way to increase your alert levels ahead of arriving in the office, with the likes of Lumosity and Elevate two of the most popular choices with players.


Using a scientific process, the games are all designed to get different parts of your brain moving, meaning you'll start your day testing your memory, response times and concentration levels. Games usually last no more than a few minutes and they will be different each day as you look to improve your cognitive skills.


Work Related Apps

The commute often gives people the chance to get a head start on the day and your mobile device can certainly help with that. Setting email up on your phone of course doesn't require any download, but you'll find apps such as Google Docs and Microsoft Office available to download, allowing you to put together spreadsheets and presentations through your smartphone before finishing off when you arrive in work.


It's not only a good way to get started on work, but also get your head into the game and be fully prepared for when you do arrive into work, where you can well and truly hit the ground running.


Your workplace may even have an app of their own, where you can pick up any documents that you'd been working on and push forward with them anytime, anywhere.
