Howcast Brings the Knowledge to iPad

iPad App - Designed for iPad

It goes without saying that there are some things in life that I don't know.  As much as I would love to convince everyone otherwise, I am far from a genius and more often than not turn to the internet to fill in my educational void.  This is where an innovative video "how-to" site site by the name of Howcast comes in.  Combining informative videos amusing presentation, they have taken an interesting new approach to teaching the masses.  Sure, some of the clips may share a similar vibe with an Enzite commercial, but fear not, all of the content is solid.

If you are looking for a perfect example of the kind of information and presentation that the site has pioneered, check out this clip entitled "How to Freestyle Rap."

I realize that I still will have no future dropping a beat, I still feel like I know a little bit more about how to be successful. With a lighthearted delivery and fun content like "How To Make Your Dorm Room Livable" or "How To Set Up a Hayride," you are bound to find just the information you are looking for and maybe even some that you weren't.

The problem is that the site's videos are ran using a flash based media player, therefor rendering them useless on iOS devices.  Well that was the case until a few weeks ago when they debuted the Howcast iPad application.  Now that their impressive back library of videos have been ported to our platform of choice, we will be able to soak in all of the fun on the run.  Plus, as you can see in some of the screenshots, everything is seamless and simple to navigate as well.  Possibly best of all is the pricetag, which is a heaping helping of absolutely nothing.  So act fast and download the app, before they wise up and decide to make some money!
