Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Gives teens immediate access to a wealth of knowledge, offering incredible breadth and depth of topics. Free, ad-supported app a gem. Shows and video podcasts load quickly and run smoothly. 

The Support Level for HowStuffWorks is about a 4 out of 5.

Bits of interactivity in the form of quizzes, but more would be better. Every article lets users tag it as a favorite and share it (through email, Facebook, or Twitter) or wirelessly print the piece. 

We’d like to thank C.S.M for providing some of the information on this page.
