What’s New

Version 6.0.2

• Improved and more intuitive drawing and annotating. From now on, drawings will turn into separate, movable objects when the space between the drawn lines is big enough. When drawings are close to each other, they will group, but can be manually ungrouped so you can move them separately.
• Most notifications and alerts have been rewritten so they’re easier to understand, and they also feature a brand new visual style.
• The new “Guides” section on the Home Screen now features free templates with step-by-step instructions for you to download right from the app.
• Group Admins can now disable cloud features for their group in the App Configuration panel on Explain Drive.
• We’ve removed some pesky errors that used to appear when launching Explain Everything via external links. It is now more seamless.
• YouTube and GDrive access permissions are now separate from Sign-in so you can now choose when to enable them and which YouTube channel you’d like to use.
• Objects set as the background now have the same set of actions available in the Inspector as when they’re not in the background.
• Numerous other small issues have been sent to the nether realm ;)

Incredibly good app, look no further!

This app is an amazing piece of work, it’s clearly had a lot of thought put into it, as it has loads of clever features like stealth mode, so that you can zoom in and work on things but the recording doesn’t show that zooming. It has so many tools to help you quickly make videos that clearly illustrate anything you can think of. It’s also very intuitive to use so you won’t spend long gettting the feel of it.

I hope to see better pen options in the future. Particularly I would like a slider for pen size, and the size of the pen/eraser to be consistent so that when you zoom in, the pen stays relatively the same size as it was before, like they have in procreate.

I would also like pressure sensitivity for opacity and size, to give really convincing handwriting.

I’ve written to the team and got a quick response that they would raise these suggestions the following week with the developers and see whether it would be feasible.

An amazing app and seemingly an amazing team.

Intuitive and productive

I’m using this to support my lecture content. For me it’s an absolute game changer as I can provide additional support and content which the students love. I can use it to provide alternative ways to present material. The interface is intuitive and the software is very flexible. Even to the point of being able to insert a searchable browser window into the presentation. Easy cloud upload to and link to video can easily be incorporated into our VLE.

Bad app! Don’t bother downloading oh it’s money down the drain

Now We have been trying to fix this app for months but your trials and prices are ridiculous. Get rid of them and you will get more users also I do not have £9.99 pay as there’s no point just to use classic and If you don’t get rid of them I will start giving you no stars. This was good before but you’ve just let yourselves down. If you want 5 stars get rid of the trial and on classic put the price from £10 to £0. Instead of thank you here to s a no thank you.

Hi Kian, if you have an account and sign in to a Classic aap, you will have the same features. Otherwise, without having an account, there is no access to real-time collaboration, clipart library, Discover portal and more.
