How-To Apps

Your source for the latest app news and guides, from Snapchat to TikTok to Instagram, we’ve got you covered

How-To Apps was founded in the summer of 2019 with the goal of providing thoroughly-researched, easy to understand, and informative answers to your app-related questions. We cover the latest app related news and tech in the industry.

As apps like TikTok ballooned in popularity in 2019 we covered popular trends and how-to guides. We’re always looking for the latest app that has come to the scene and love to teach you about the app and how to use it most effectively.

This website was created because we found a need and a lack of well-researched information around the web. Whenever we had a question that was app-related we felt that we were limited to forums or random people’s advice that didn’t seem to actually test or use the app at all. The use of apps, both in terms of total downloads and time spent on apps has been growing rapidly in the past decade, but in many ways, the journalism surrounding the general app category has been limited and under-represented. How-To Apps is meant to tackle that issue we faced many times.

Trevor, the founder of How-To Apps, has been in the tech space for many years, building communities around the latest technologies and apps. He has written hundreds of articles on app-related topics, which have been read tens of millions of times.

We aim that this site is your authoritative resource for answering app-related questions and providing simple and effective information to get you back doing what you love best. Less fluff, more substance. That’s our promise.
