"If You Love HowStuffWorks This Is For You"

Reviewed by / Mar 13, 2015

Get everything you love about HowStuffWorks in an app!


The idea behind the HowStuffWorks app is a great one, but the actual performance of the app is lacking. The app should give you access to articles, podcasts, quizzes, and more from HowStuffWorks. And while it sometimes does, it also crashes and needs to be uninstalled and reinstalled. The interface is not user friendly and it is difficult to search through the archives.


This app gives you access to everything on HowStuffWorks.


The app is not user friendly and it can be hard to find what you're looking off. It doesn't run smooth and often shuts down.

    Whenever you click on a subject to read the actual matter, it comes up to no internet connection message even when connected to Wifi. It has just wasted time and data.

    I love the site, the articles are fantastic but this app is not so great. It crashed five times out of five tries. It claimed I didn't have an Internet connection when I did and then displayed an error code. I'm so sad the application doesn't live up to the website.

    Search is bad, the app keeps shutting off, but good facts?
