Don’t like plans

I been using this app for years mostly for school, though have made things for myself outside of school due to powerful software like this usually being pretty expensive while this is relatively cheap. I recently had gotten my iPad broken so upon getting a new iPad and redownloading this, I noticed you have to subscribe to a thing JUST TO HAVE MORE THEN ONE SLIDE. I don’t know how long it has been like that since I don’t frequently check updates... but to be honest I am very disappointed... I may still use this from time to time but having a single slide while that plus button taunts me is really an off putting... Aswell as having a limited number of projects you can have. I say thanks to the people who developed this as it has done a lot of cool things for me and I am sad to see features are now locked due to needing a better “plan” while before having unlimited ability to do anything...

Hi, thank you for rating our app. That's true - Explain Everything with a free plan has some limitations including number of projects that you can create or slides. If you want to unlock it, please subscribe or consider using Explain EDU which is a single-purchase app.

Update 5.0.1

I’ve used this app for years, and open and use it daily in my classroom. It has been a game changer for me and my students. However the latest update, while I do enjoy some of the visual updates find the app more cumbersome to use. Instead having direct access to my folders on my home screen I now have to tap over to library. Is that a big deal, no. But having to do that extra step several times a day becomes annoying. The new font and layout also shrink the titles of my projects so I can no longer can tell what I’m looking at without opening each one. I think these things can be fixed with a smaller font type and direct access to folders back on my home screen. But as I’ve learned with this app user feedback isn’t a top priority.

Update made app price prohibitive

Before the latest update I would have given this app 10 stars. I can’t tell you how many hours I have used explain everything to create videos for my flipped classroom and to record examples from my math class for students who were gone. Yesterday when I went to add a new slide I received a message that I needed to subscribe to get more slides. I payed for the app (one time, several years ago). Over my Christmas break I’ll have to try to find a new app to replace this one. I’ve tried to find the version I’d been using...

The description of this app needs to be modified to let teachers know it now requires a subscription to use this app.

Developer Response ,

Hi! If you had a single purchase version of the app you can still access it without extra payment if you don't want to use features like real-time collaboration or cross-platform accessibility. Download Explain EDU with the same Apple ID to access your one time purchase app on contact and we will help you out!
