"Hack your lifestyle"

Reviewed by / Nov 20, 2013

Living and Working Smarter is a RSS reader which brings together inspiring blogs for lifestyle hacking

Don't let boredom and routine get you stuck. The Internet is full of inspiring ideas to improve your lifestyle, and this app has brought some of them together.

From IKEA Hacks to Zen passing through entrepreneurship and "The happiness project". Living and Working Smarter app is nothing but a compilation of blogs with inspiring ideas to grow yourself. All those sources are constantly up-to-date via RSS.

Users can read all those interesting articles from the app (no need to launch the browser) and share them at any time.

There are app to 16 sources including LifeHacker, Pick The Brain, Four Hour Workweek and Unclutterer. The selection is great and that's what will keep you coming back and check the app again and again.

The app falls short in design though. It should be enhanced to offer a better-looking and more intuitive interface. A more visual layout and swiping controls for navigation would make it more sticky.

Developer's original description available here
Get Smart! Live and work smarter!

Hack your brain, mold your mind, and change your life.

The web is full of great sites and blogs by incredibly smart and brilliant people sharing what they know, often for free, to help you get things done, accomplish more, and live a better life. But sometimes that's a problem - there are so many sites it's often hard to tell where to start.

Fedora Nate Studios offers this app as a solution.

In Living and Working Smart, this app will serve as your portal to some of the best reading from the web on those things that can improve your working life as well as your life in general.

Feeds from some of the best blogs and websites on how to stress less, get more done, balance work and life, and in general, live and work smarter not just harder.

Life Hacker, Zen Habits, The Four-Hour Workweek, and many more!

Recently changed in this version

v1.5: Due to new rules by Google, we've had to remove full content feeds from sites that don't natively offer them. It means that some feeds will be excerpts which can be manually selected to view the full article. Sorry for the inconvenience, but those are the new rules from Google.

Also, we've fixed some feeds that didn't work, and swapped others for mobile optimized websites for sites that offer it - it has better functionality and can be read in-app by the native webpage viewer.
