Are you an early-adopting hipster that’s bummed that Instagram is being purchased by Facebook
? Or maybe a creative type
that wants to share some projects with the world? If so we’d recommend checking out a new iOS app named Snapguide.
In essence Spapguide combines your own photo-taking abilities with a simple content creation template for making “how-to” guides. It sounds simple, but that’s the brilliance of it. How to mix the perfect martini? Teach someone how to tie a square knot? Show the world how to install your favorite screen protectors? All of them can be made quickly and easily in Snapguide, and the result is made available for learning on phones and the web.
Sadly only Apple’s iOS is supported right now, but according to the company’s FAQ they are interested in bringing the app to other platforms as time and resources allow. In the crowded app ecosystem it seems like many good apps are simply another way to post to your blog, or a new set of photo-editing filters, but Snapguide seems to have recognized a need that is underserviced in the market right now; with the ease of use and social-sharing aspects well-integrated into the user experience, we suspect a lot of you will find a use for it.
