1:06 /

Whether you're looking for a specific recipe, a craft project, or a tip for a household chore, a new "how-to" web site and mobile app may be of help. It's called "Snapguide" and it provides step-by-step instructions, along with photos and videos, on a wide range of topics. CNET's Kara Tsuboi tries it out in this Tech Minute.

Let's say you wanna teach someone how to bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Have you ever tried to describe the process? It's a lot harder than it seems because there are so many simple steps that may seems intuited to you. Snapguide have recently launched website and mobile app that let you create step by step process for you to teach other people how to do things. Let's say you're a master baker or crafts or Do-It-Yourself home repair person. You probably have valuable skills and tips and tricks that are worth sharing. First, download the free app on to your iPhone and create an account. Then, start building your own guide with own photos and videos that you took on your smart phone. Add a few lines of text and even the most complicated process can now be easily digested by a community of users. If you rather just explore other people's guides, you can do that on your phone or to the website snapguide.com. I've already learned how to die yarn using CoolAid, decorate my nails with sprinkles and how to bake an egg inside an avocado. In San Francisco, I'm Cara Savoy CNET.com for CBS News.
