YouTube and other video sites have truly changed the how-to business. So what do I mean by “how-to business?” I am talking about people who make a living off of teaching others what to do in certain situations and how to get things done. In fact, there is almost nothing you can’t learn by watching videos on YouTube. But sometimes, you just need that little tip on the go and don’t want to search through YouTube videos to find what you are looking for. That’s where How-To apps for iPhone come in.
