6 cool car devices and driving apps for the ultimate commute

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.

This last device is a pure extra, not a luxury buy, but something that's really makes the car ride feel better. The econoLED Car Humidifier helps purify your car's interior if you're in a traffic jam, humidifies to stop the heat from drying you out, and includes aromatherapy to get rid of the smell from that pizza you picked up last night. The $14.99 device has an easy power switch and rotates 180 degrees to cover all passengers.
