Chances are these days if you want to find out how to do something - whether that be baking a lemon drizzle cake or building a bookshelf, you consult the internet. There are a plethora of online resources where other people post their ‘How To’ Guides and within minutes you generally can find a few guides detailing the basics of what you need to do. Until now though, there haven’t really been any resources where these guides were collated in the one place and presented in a really visually appealing manner, which is exactly what our latest Startup of the Week is aiming to do.
Snapguide is an iOS app available for both iPhone and iPad aimed specifically at those people who want to create and share their own step by step “how to” guides. Users can use the app to create their own guides, which can feature images, videos and explanatory captions and can then share their guides with the rest of the Snapguide community.
Currently guides can be created and shared on a whole host of topics - everything from Arts and Crafts and Cooking through to Photography and Technology related subjects.
Where this app really excels is in how the guides are presented; the use of photos to illustrate each guide makes it almost appear like you are browsing through the pages of a magazine and with the rise in popularity of sites like Pinterest, that is surely not a bad thing.
