Great potential but slow learning curve
I’ve been a licensed user for 2 years, and the “go to” app user on my campus. Love being able to create videos for my students to move self-paced through lessons, but the tools are not intuitive and difficult to master. Time is a valuable commodity for teachers. Learning curve for instructional tools needs to be fast. Attempting to create more professional presentations by combining slides, documents, blank templates, and teacher clips (live view for demos) in the same video is a technology challenge, yet to be achieved. File naming and editing recordings is tricky, as I’ve lost much work due to auto-naming and tool issues. Importing multi-page files in a desired layout escapes me.
If there is an online training, I’d love to take advantage before the new school year begins on Aug 5.

Thank you for leaving a review! In regard to the auto-naming and tool issues you are experiencing, would you mind contacting firstname.lastname@example.org so we can investigate and help resolve these problems? As for online training, we recommend checking out our webinars: https://explaineverything.com/webinars/. They have different levels of difficulty that should help you understand both our basic and more advanced tools.
Great idea... not a good app.
I was tasked with using this app for a class project where I would make a video of me explaining tips of another app. I whipped out Explain everything and I realized right away this would be a difficult project. Not because of the task given to me, but because of the app I had to use. While it’s a great idea, Explain Everything is not what I was hoping for. It was slow, and it had very basic features. I had to record audio for the slides and it was almost guaranteed that it would cut off either the beginning of what I was saying or the end. Sometimes both. It also doesn’t seem to allow you to move audio around if I wanted to add something, or to try to fix what it had cut off. I am also disappointed that there is no way for me to watch the whole project at once instead of clicking on each individual clip and clicking play. This app did not live up to my expectations and I was really hoping to add this app to my list of daily project creation apps. As of today, though, it will not be used further. I am open to retry it in the future. As I said, it’s a great idea. The app just isn’t ready yet.

Hi - we're sorry to hear that you didn't have a good experiencing using Explain Everything! We do offer basic project functions, nevertheless, there are many more options that you may not be aware of. For example, it's true that we do not yet offer the ability to move audio on the Timeline. However, we do have an Insert option, which allows you to add audio anywhere in your recordings. Also, if you tap and hold on the Play button, you'll see our Golden Play feature which allows you to preview the whole project before exporting. If you would like to try our app out again, I recommend reaching out to email@example.com with some more information regarding some of the issues you were experiencing. We would be more than happy to help clarify!
Want to love it
I used this app with my teacher. In fact I’ve bought my teacher and iPad Pro just to use this app with me. That’s how much I like it, and rely on it. I sure wish the bugs could be worked out though.
Every day is a new adventure. One of the things I did early on was to import a graphic of a sheet of paper. I turned it into a clip art. So whenever I import a pdf and want to take notes from it in a live class, I just drop the paper clip art. With my current settings what I had write on that paper should automatically group with that sheet. And with that, pinching the sheet of paper, and moving it should also resize and move the hand written text with it. Only sometimes it works and often just the text moves and nothing else. It seems to me that the app just doesn’t perform as it should. Sometimes the feature works, other times, not so much.
Another annoying thing is sometimes I can har the audio I record, and often it is low and I can’t hear it well. What gives? Why not have a consistent user experience?

I'm sorry to hear that! Could you please open the Settings - Editing tab and check if you have the Auto-group drawings setting turned on? If not, please switch it on to see if this helps. As for the audio issue, could you please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us with more information? We would be more than happy to help!
