No one likes or enjoys their commute in whatever form it takes. No one likes being stuck in endless traffic as learner drivers slam on the brakes at random, or being sat on yet another late train, or dealing with a broken bike chain, or a hobbling on a blister on your heel making each step agony.

Recent research shows that our phones are proven to be affecting the way we talk, think, have sex, eat and even go to the loo.
