Living outside of the city doesn't mean your time getting to work can't be fun

When I lived outside of the city and had a car, the commute into work was always close to unbearable. I couldn't reach anything in the backseat, I always made a mess of my breakfast and worst of all, I couldn't touch my phone.

Over time, I learned some tricks to make the car ride more bearable. I put my phone in the sun visor for hands free calling, used straws in my coffee so not to spill, and played the radio once in a while for variety from my Spotify playlist. I also learned that smart devices and apps made all the difference — here's six to help you too.

Owl Car Cam


Owl is a security device, watching both the inside and outside of you car, with an HD camera that lets someone outside of the car, watch a live video feed, and even talk with you, while you're driving. You get a year of free video storage with the $349 Owl Car Cam. Think of Owl as a way to protect the car — and you.
