4. Headspace

5. Imgur

Let’s be real: when most of us are commuting, we just want an easy way to waste time. The Imgur app is the procrastinators dream and the commuters savior. Originally an offshoot of Reddit, Imgur connects you to and endless stream of images and GIF’s. Yes, technically Imgur is little more than a never ending wave of memes and other relatively useless but mildly interesting online content, but that’s not a bad thing. The time you enjoy wasting on Imgur isn’t really wasted! Heck, If you get bored with looking at content, you can even start posting your own. Download Android Download IOS xYbbkMr
