The other night I was browsing the iTunes app store on my iPhone when I came across Snapguide. At first, I didn’t see what all the fuss was about until I downloaded the app.
Snapguide allows users to create “how to” guides and publish them to the public via Twitter, Facebook or email (you can also view the person’s profile page on the internet if you know their username). Basically, anyone can view and comment on these guides but you do need to have an account if you want to to create your own guides.
The concept is not entirely new, there are many “how to” videos/guides on the internet/YouTube. This app sort of uses the Twitter idea of following Snapguide users you find interesting. One of the plus points in my opinion is the lovely interface of this app. The design is simple and clean, it runs smoothly and it’s free!
The app is still fairly new, they just launched the app end of March this year so you may come across guides you’ve already seen many times but the number of users are growing so I’m sure we’ll see a lot more guides (including those that just don’t make any sense! Trust me, I’ve seen a few of those already).
You can create your own guide using a combination of photos, video, text and sound! I already created four guides, here’s mine. Somehow, one of mine made it to the Popular Page. Check it out. If you’re on Snapguide, leave me a comment and I’ll check out your guides.
