5 Apps To Make Your Commute More Productive

#1 – Create your to-do list
Spend some time listing the things you need to accomplish that day. My favourite to-do list apps are  Wunderlist( my personal favourite) and Evernote .

#2 – Clear your inbox

I like to go through my emails and declutter my inbox before I get into work. It saves me at least an hour during my working day.

#3 – Learn a language

If you to improve your French skills or another language, Duolingo is a great and free app that makes learning languages fun and easy. Each lesson is short, painless, and super visual.

#4-  Read the articles you’ve bookmarked.

With the Pocket app, you can save articles, videos, and other type of content in one place for easy reading on your commute. You can save content directly from your browser, emails, or from over 500 apps like Twitter, Flipboard etc.

#5 – Read the newest posts from your favorite online sources.

If you want to read the latest articles t from your favourite blogs or other sited. Try Feedly! It’s an RSS reader that lets you subscribe to published so you never miss a post from them.

    My commute is a walking one so not hugely productive (though I guess it’s exercise!). When I finally start my professional exams I’m hoping to have a train-journey to study during! x

    I love the idea of learning a new language whilst commuting! I spend 2 hours a day commuting and it really seems like lost time! I’ll definitely be looking into the app you suggested.
