Fun Mobile Games for your Commute

When commuting to-and-fro on Public transit, or even as a passenger on a trip, sometimes you need a quick game to kill the time. This usually means playing a game that doesn’t require data or wifi, due to underground trains at times. Sure, you could read a book or listen to music, but sometimes you want something more stimulating. Well, most of our Top Mobile Trends team takes public transit, so we asked the office what their go-to game apps are for the trip!
