Editors’ Notes

A terrific interactive whiteboard and screencasting app, Explain Everything is perfect for making instructional videos that clearly demonstrate concepts. Annotate, manipulate, and add narration to documents, photos, and videos, creating visual presentations you can easily share. Instructors can use this powerful app to explain everything from math equations to football plays, or they can task students with producing their own projects to show to the class.

Used To Be Good, Before The Subscription

Joshua D.

This was a superb app before the greedy and unwarranted subscription plan was added to it. I bought this app years ago when it was first released and there was no stupid subscription with it.

I honestly feel ripped off that a premium app I paid good money for. Is now asking me to pay monthly or yearly, on top of the initial price I already paid for this once premium program. That is just greedy double-dipping in my opinion and highly unethical to boot.

Apple, allowing any and all developers to add subscription plans to their apps, whether it's justified or not, and 99% of the time it just isn't. Well, it is basically the worst decision they ever made. Beaten out only by the heinous decision to introduce the plague known as, in-app purchases, to the App Store.

Developer Response

Hi Joshua, we're sorry to hear that you feel this way. If you have purchased Explain Everything SV once it was available, you will be upgraded for free after verifying with our support team ( We have launched Explain Everything Classic back in 2011 for iPad1. Since that time, the app has received lots of important updates. In order to continue working on new features and maintain our servers we needed to change the business plan into subscription. Subscription became optional, and if someone does not need features it unblocks like real-time collaboration or upload to our cloud portal, can stay with classic set of features and get the app as a single purchase.

Almost perfect


First I like that the app is continually updated.
I love that you can now zoom in and out without having to press the zoom button, makes lessons more fluid.
Only wish they had the "option" to limit the zoom capability of zooming to 20,000%. I understand some may like it, but at least have the option to create your own zoom range for those who don't wish to use that much.
