Pretty Good, but limited and expensive

A good app that allows you to import a video from Photos or Files and then draw on it. However the video progress bar up top is not good for longer videos and you can only jump back by 5 seconds. If the way you scan though a video can be fixed (like a wheel with a speed setting like other telestrator apps) then it would be 5 stars, however $40 is still rather expensive for the basic functionality it has. Overall would recommend

Have Telestrator, Will Travel

I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had with this app and using it to diagram out sports plays, put online courses together with a more “human” touch, and go all-out telestrator mode live via Ecamm. This app is one of the best values out there and the customer service and response time is fantastic. Highly recommend for all educators and sports fans.

Imbed titles in video

I would like to imbed titles into a video that I have just narrated over, is there a way to save and render the text into a single complete video, the app is amazing, thanks for creating it, please let us save and render later.
