Explain Everything Basics is an iPad- and iPhone-only version of Explain Everything where creations are saved locally on the device. It DOES NOT include: online collaboration with voice chat, cloud-based video rendering, online video hosting, dedicated cloud storage, and group management.

Explain Everything Basics was designed for schools with iOS-only deployments. It is also intended for those who may need to exclusively purchase it via Apple's Volume Purchase Program (VPP), those with internet access challenges, or both.

The other app on the App Store, Explain Everything Whiteboard, is the complete whiteboard platform with online features. It includes all the elements of Explain Everything Basics plus: online collaboration with voice chat, cloud-based video rendering, online video hosting, dedicated cloud storage, and group management.

To try Explain Everything Whiteboard for free, please search for it on the App Store or use this link:

Versie 6.6.6

• Insert 3D Models from Sketchfab
Add high-quality, community-made 3D models to your canvas via the new integration with Sketchfab. You can find it in Add Media > 3D Objects. Once you add a model, you can select it with the Hand Tool and then rotate it.
NOTE: A Sketchfab account is required in order to use the integration and download 3D models. Not every model is free to download and any purchases made are managed by Sketchfab.

•More Document Page Locking Options
When importing a document, you can now lock movement attributes of its pages. This way, you can control pages’ ability to move on the canvas before you add them. You can later change that with the Inspector.

Great but

Drawing tools could be more intuitive, especially selection.
Could implement path animations.
Could have layers.
Editing of objects along the timeline could be more powerful.

Can't seem to change the palette

I can't seem to change the palette of an existing slide. Online help for iOS doesn't help, describing buttons which aren't there.
