5 Applications Every Commuter Needs!
4 Starbucks for iPhone. Well come on, who doesn't need a fast way to get their morning coffee? Starbucks has made it easy, and fun! No more searching for change in the bottom of your briefcase. Or, uh, in the case of Starbucks, dollar bills.
3 Overdrive. This was designed for car commutes but works beautifully for the train rider, too. Overdrive lets you download eBooks and audiobooks from your local library directly to your iPhone, and listen away. No need to pull out your computer, or buy an audiobook, borrow them from your local library! This is a free app, to boot!
2 Cafeteria Nipponica. Every train commuter needs a good game app. According to the game experts, this is the perfect one for the train commuter, because it's "tailor-made for medium-length gameplay sessions. Famed sim-maker Kairosoft’s latest gives gamers the opportunity to build and run their own collection of restaurants. Hire staff, set the décor, find ingredients, discover recipes and more. By the time you get to work you’ll have managed at least one major restaurant upgrade or recipe breakthrough. You’re always one step away from the next big reward."
1 And if you live in Boston, you will soon be the first in the nation to have the new MBTA ticketing app for iPhones, Androids and Blackberrys. The app, to be available first in Boston sometime this fall, will enable you to store daily tickets or monthly passes on your phone, and just show it to the conductor when he comes around. How great is that?
