The connected age has made it easy to spread knowledge to just about anyone, and Snapguide is an easy and elegant way to share with the world step-by-step guides to what you know. Users can create public photo and video guides to do anything — from making a killer bruschetta to tying a bow tie — which they can post to the app and share.

Snapguide lets users search for guides or pick from topics they’re interested in, such as food, crafts or technology. Companies such as have posted guides, but many are made by everyday people. Users also can comment on a guide to offer a tweak or simply to thank the poster for publishing. Snapguide offers users the option to sign in with Facebook, Twitter or with an e-mail address. Free, for iOS devices.
