How Stuff Works is an informative iPad app that contains thousands of educational articles, podcasts, videos, and fun quizzes. You’ll literally drown from information overload. Here is our complete review:
This interesting app basically tells you how things work and answers a lot of our curiosities in life. It won’t run out of fascinating facts and trivia as there are countless of information available. Internet is needed to run this app and explore the massive collection of stuff it offers.
How Stuff Works is arranged into different categories – Home, Stuff, Shows, Quizzes, Favorites and Search for easy reference. There’s a variety of topics ranging from Animals, Culture, Technology, Health, and Entertainment among others. One thing is sure – you’ll certainly find something that would capture your interests.
Each article has links to other related stuff that would give you more information about the topic. You can save the ones you like as your Favorites. Or if you feel like sharing them to your friends and family, you can send it via email, Twitter or Facebook. It’s also worth noting that you can listen to a podcast and browse or read an article at the same time.
The only downside I noticed is that this app crashes every now and then. But it’s still worth the information you get as How Stuff Works is available on iTunes for free.
