As a company that does an enormous amount of its work on iPhones, we like apps. We like learning, and are, at heart, curious. And—as you also may have guessed—we also like giving our opinions about things.
So when we were asked to test out and write about the new Show Me Now apps, we jumped at the chance. Five of us took the apps for a test drive.
And now, it’s your turn. We’d like to thank you for reading, and give you some free apps in return. We’ll give four (4) apps away to random commenters on this post. Comments must be relevant and the giveaway is for comments on this post only. Comments must be posted by Sunday, March 20, at midnight PST to be eligible.
Here are some excerpts about the Show Me Now app from our review team:
“Among the many sets of how-to instructions contained within this app—”how to make a tin can luminary” and “how to tie a cherry stem in your mouth”— is “how to create a hollowed-out book.” I tried this once as a teenager, way back before they had apps, and it didn’t go so well. … Oh, if I had only had the great fortune to have benefited from the wisdom contained in apps.” [READ MORE]
“in the Eat category, I found something I can’t wait to try on my next family camping trip—“cook cake in an orange.” It sounds simple. Just cut off the top of an orange, then hollow out the inside, fill it halfway up with cake batter, replace the top and then wrap heavily in foil. Place ’em on the coals, making certain to turn often, and 35 minutes later, you’ve got a campfire dessert with a citrus flair. Bet on a big hit with the kids.” [READ MORE]
“Basically, Show Me Now teaches you how to do just about anything. Yes, a lot of it was completely ridiculous and no, I will never need to learn how to “dread my do,” “walk like a diva in heels,” or “befriend a scared kitty.” I already teach classes on the first two, and I hate cats, so that’s that. But seriously, the absurd how-tos made me laugh. And that’s always welcome, isn’t it?” [READ MORE]
“Within minutes you check your iPhone again. Maybe because there might’ve been a text or email that never buzzed. But perhaps you got a sneak peek of how to make a killer Christmas wreath with a coat hanger, and let’s be honest, even though you may never put together any kind of Christmas decoration, these how-tos are pretty damn addictive.” [READ MORE]
“For instance, I’ve always wanted to know how to “Fool a Polygraph” (don’t ask) and “Apply Lipstick Sexily” (again, don’t ask), but the demonstration that really caught my eye was the one on how to do a card trick.” [READ MORE]
