Step-by-step guides are our bread and butter here at Lifehacker, and you seem to enjoy reading them as much as we enjoy writing them. From start to finish, here are the best how-to guides we published in 2016.
Food is pretty important. Whether you consider yourself a “foodie” or not, you’ve gotta eat, and everyone can use tips on how to eat and cook better, faster and more healthfully. Here are some of our most popular food hacks from 2016.

There was a wide variety of topics to expound on this year. We caught Pokemon on the street, learned how to caucus and vote, calibrated our new HDR TVs and took some smart drugs. Here are the best explainers of 2016.
We’re always finding ingenious workarounds to life’s problems, big or small. This year we treated pool noodles as all-purpose cushions, removed and saved wine corks, got the most out of a burner phone and used a simple test to see if the power went out.
Often, the best way to approach self-improvement is to look to those you admire and seek out advice. That’s why we regularly feature interesting and accomplished people to share their favourite work habits, tools and tips for staying productive. Here are our most popular interviews of 2016.

2016 brought us a new iPhone and a new operating system with iOS 10, but the clear winner of the year was Pokemon GO. There was really something for every iOS user this year. Here are our biggest posts and downloads for iOS.
