iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Here at the iPhone App Review, we are all about some good, high-quality tech-based education. We ourselves are largely self taught, and over the years have managed to scrap together quite a number of skills in a wide variety of tech topics. Thankfully, though, you don’t have to work quite as hard, thanks to the beautiful application that is HowTech, from HowTech LLC. The app is produced by the company of the same name, and allows you access to their immense repository of explanatory videos, each dealing with a different and unique topic within the world of tech education. You’ll find everything from how to upload a video to YouTube all the way to creating complex menus within PHP. If any of that sound like a good time out, then by all means—our full review is only just beyond the break below!
Concept and Functionality
The idea behind HowTech is nothing new, at least not quite. The app delivers an entire bevy of incredibly good instructional videos on how to perform or orchestrate a number of tech-oriented jobs. This has been done before by places like eHow, however the difference is in the details: The videos offered here by HowTech are truly of the highest calibre, and aren’t likely to disappoint. They’re clear, to the point, and offer more than enough information to get you moving.
Best of all, they come wrapped up in this rather tidy application! Within the app, you can search based on topic—of which, the headings range from social media to Mac computing—or individually thanks to the query bar. When you find something you’d like to view, just tap it. The app loads up your material, and it’s happy viewing! This combination of material and presentation lends itself very well to the tech world, and if you’re not careful, you may just learn something.
Design and Interface
Overall, we find very little to be disappointed with in the app’s design. It’s not the most inspiringly award-winning affair we’ve ever seen, but then again, it doesn’t need to be. Everything has been laid out in a clear and precise way, allowing you easy access to the parts you want. Furthermore, as we’ve already mentioned, the real kicker here is the fact that the app contains such good material. Seriously, these instructionals are beautifully put together, and whether you’re an industry veteran like us, or just starting out, you’ll find something new to add.
And as a free application in the App Store, it’s incredibly hard not to recommend HowTech to anyone with a desire to learn. The app is brilliantly put together, offers a wealth of fantastic information, and is guaranteed to tickle the fancy of any viewer. With that in mind, it’s a perfect five out of five from us, as well as our stiff recommendation.
HowTech requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
