Being one of those children (long ago) who always had to ask parents questions beginning with, "Why...?", "How...?" or "What does it mean...?", I was suitably impressed and happy when I stumbled upon HowStuffWorks the other day. With this app you can discover things you always wondered about, but had no idea how they came to be or functioned, along with facts that will blow you away. Using HowStuffWorks, you can also stream podcasts while reading any article, or even chat directly with the podcasters. 2,000+ enlightening shows are now available. Some of the great categories for shows and articles of this reference and entertainment app are as follows:

-Stuff You Should Know: Named as one of the Best of iTunes in 2008 and 2010 and riding high in the top ten ever since.

-Stuff You Missed in History Class: If you weren’t paying attention, Stuff You Missed in History Class has you covered.

-BrainStuff: HowStuffWorks founder, Marshall Brain, shares quick nuggets of stuff that will make you smarter!

-Stuff Mom Never Told You: In 2009, Stuff Mom Never Told You was named as one of the Best of iTunes and keeps listeners looped in on the stuff that mom forgot.

-TechStuff: The perfect podcast for seasoned techies and novices alike, this show breaks it down in a way that comforts even the staunchest technophobe.

-Stuff to Blow Your Mind: For the nerd in us all, this podcast will blow your mind. Best of iTunes for 2010.

-CarStuff: HowStuffWorks.com goes behind the wheel and under the hood in this auto-enthusiasts favorite.

Or, check out any of our original video series:

-Stuff They Don’t Want You to Know: Conspiracy theorist? You’re not alone.

-The Stuff of Genius: Join HowStuffWorks founder, Marshall Brain, as he breaks down the evolution of everyday stuff in a fascinating way.

-The Coolest Stuff on the Planet: Take a tour around the most awesome places on Earth, without having to hop on a plane.

Some great articles that I read in the Stuff You Should Know category were: Taking the Vows: How Nuns Work, Why Do Small Temperature Changes Have an Impact and 5 Impressive Art Heists. I learned many things here presented in an interesting way with enough wit and surprise factor to keep me reading! Oh, I'm still reading and I've got a long way to go! I've not listened to these podcasts or watched videos yet, but that's all on my ToDo list! This app on iPad is super easy to read on the large screen with easy navigation and is a pleasurable past-time.
COOL CONCLUSION: "If you've got a curious mind, love fascinating information and want many of your questions answered, HowStuffWorks is the perfect app for you."
