LifehackFor iPHone – Old Hat App Review.

Posted in Apple Inc

How would you like to ease into your morning with news that is actually useful to you? Most news apps give you frightening messages about the tragic events of the previous day. Why not wake up feeling motivated and optimistic?

Lifehack is your source for tips for productivity, communication, healthy living, and just plain living. This app is updated daily. The short articles are drawn from many different sources and put in a concise, friendly format that doesn’t tax a sleepy brain. Often I feel compelled to tweet or e-mail the daily tips to my friends, team members, or family and this app makes it very simple to share what you have learned. A cup of coffee and Lifehack starts the day off just right.

Our Review

Every morning while drinking my second cup of coffee in bed, I reach for my iPhone and open Lifehack. Often I get so into finding out what is the next little article that I lose track of my coffee. occasionally an article does not load properly but this is rare. The elements are clearly labeled. There are buttons for tweeting, e-mailing, and posting to FaceBook. The learning curve for this app is minimal and VoiceOver works well with it. The other news apps are useful too but Lifehack helps me feel purposeful which is a much gentler way to start my day.
