Description: Howcast for Android shows you fun, useful how-to videos wherever you are- when you’re out and about or just to lazy to get to your computer.
Next time you’re on the go with your Android phone, watch and learn How To Jump Start Your Car, How To Pick a Lock, How To Make a Mojito or just about anything – all with Howcast.
Are you dumb as a rock and need instructional videos on almost everything? Maybe you need to learn how to train a dog? Make a bloody mary? Being the life of the party? Howcast has instructional videos on these subjects and much more. Most of the videos are better than your average home video, so I’d consider them professionally done. Most have voice overs and graphical texts describing the process and start with the snappy Howcast Jingle.
Video quality is decent. Most are done in the same format with the same voice doing the voice overs. I was wondering how this worked, so I signed up for an account at Howcast.com to be a film maker. Howcast works by providing the subject matter, script, and voice over. Film makers create a video following the script and subject matter. Then the film maker submits the video to Howcast for approval. If the film is approved, the film maker gets paid from $50 – $300 based on various criterias which can be found at howcast.com. Howcast boasts this is a way for film makers to be seen and get their name out there.
Script writers can also apply to write scripts for Howcast.
There’s a large amount of videos, and some are very useful, while many more are just failures at being comical.
The text only option is helpful if you don’t want to watch the whole video or don’t have sound and want to just get an outline of the instructional process.
Howcast provides a quick and easy way to learn a new skill.
