What’s New

Version 5.3.5

• More freedom for project participants in view-only mode. They can now move around the canvas using Zoom and switch between slides.
• No need to ask the project’s owner about the CODE multiple times. Join with CODE fields now remember and suggest the last 5 CODEs you used to connect to a project.
• If you fancy a background color with your desired HEX or RGB value, check out the new option in the Custom Color template. By the way, you can find the Custom Color background picker in the Slide Sorter too.
• Control automatic rotations precisely. You can now set Inspector’s auto rotation speed by providing the RPM value. Additionally, multiple bugs with auto rotations during recording were fixed.

• When saving a project and inviting people to it, Explain Everything would ask whether you'd like to overwrite the project again. While we appreciate hospitality, it felt a bit overzealous so we scratched the unnecessary question.
• Some custom clipart for group accounts weren’t loading properly and required relogging to fix it. We’re not fans of workarounds or bugs like this one so it’s no longer the case.
• A bug was preventing video object scrubbing when it was done in a cloud project. That’s been taken care of too.

WHY🐛 ,

Why do I need to pay?

I love this app, there is so much to do! I’ve had this app on my iPad for a very long time and the updates excite me but I downloaded it on my phone and now it’s saying I have to pay to continue to use it. It won’t let insert anything and it won’t even allow me to write! This is ruining my experience, I don’t think I’m going to use this app anymore just because it wants me to pay and I don’t think it’s really fair. People shouldn’t have to pay for this, there should just be in-app purchases that are optional. Sorry but this small thing has ruined the app for me and I will no longer be using it.

Developer Response ,

Hi! Please note that we have 2 apps on iOS: Explain Everything and Explain Everything Whiteboard. Explain Everything Whiteboard is a single purchase app. If you use the same Apple ID, you should be able to get it without extra costs for your iPhone. Explain Everything comes with 30 days free trial and then subscription is required. If you have any additional questions, please contact and we will help you out!

The best app to do projects ,

An amazing app

I love explain everything it’s good for a lot. I use it for school homework an projects and I always get the best score. It would make the app better if we were able to export it as other things but other that that this app is a great one for school.

I highly recommend this app to people who need a better app to do school projects on. It’s good because there are two versions. There is the one you need to pay and the one that you don’t need to pay at all.
