Let's say you want to dye the Boise River green for St. Patty's Day. That's actually No. 59. Need to have a memorable first kiss? No. 54. No. 81 will show you how to shuck an oyster. No. 78 will guide you through rolling maki sushi. The newest know-it-all app is Show Me Now, and it does just that: It shows you how to do all kinds of things. The iPhone app is an off-shoot of the Show Me How bestselling book of 500 how-to tips. There are practical categories like sports and fitness, food and drink, and emergency help, but the real fun begins when you access the "wow" category where you'll learn how to wow with card tricks, appear to levitate or breathe a ball of fire.
The $2.99 app doesn't require Internet access and is available for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
