Best App for All-Purpose Advice
Survival kit: In a clever gimmick that surfaces wikiHow’s most curious articles, the app comes with a “survival kit” loaded with how-tos to manage a variety of life-threatening situations. These are fun reads, but unless you regularly find yourself falling out of airplanes, you’ll find the app’s search function much more useful. Type in a topic (jumpstart, smoke rings, badminton, buffalo wings, breaststroke), and wikiHow tells you how to do it.
Step by step: Like any collection of publicly contributed content, wikiHow’s content varies in quality, but most articles provide a remarkable amount of useful detail. Each how-to guide documents the steps, tips, and caveats to observe to complete your project. Photos help explain the job at hand, and many articles helpfully include video, too.
Bitten by a rattlesnake? Stumped by a wallpapering project? Flummoxed by a mustard stain? Don’t panic: WikiHow has the advice you need to get out of your jam. The app serves advice from wikihow.com, the Wikipedia of how-to manuals, with over 60,000 detailed articles contributed by the site’s community of do-it-yourselfers. From car repair to relationship advice, the app offers confident answers to a dizzying range of dilemmas.
