Useful, but has bugs

I use Explain Everything for converting PowerPoint presentations to videos. It works fine for plain text, but not for graphics. During conversion it changes the font and size of characters, so any graphics that are related directly to text on a slide will be misplaced, since the relative positioning of the text changes. It also messes up the indentation for lists, and cannot convert special symbols correctly. This would be a great product if it could accurately convert PowerPoint slides. Until then, it's OK until something better comes along.


Would Love to Scroll

I love the app, but I can't expand and write more clearly as I run out of room on the slide. I would love to be able to scroll down for more work space instead of adding slides. If I had the functionality of the app "notability" but when people watched the video they don't see me pinch or expand, it just shows up as smaller hand writing or in a certain space, I would call this the perfect!


This app is “player” not a recorder like the iPad version

I am not sure that folks know that this APP is a ‘player’ that will (do nothing but) play .XPL projects created on the iPad version. It is not a program to create EE presentations.
Works just as reported on the site, as a player.
