What's New in Version 4.2.2
Excellent app but...
I hope that the developers read these reviews. This is an excellent app. I use this a lot now for my students. I send them along with my weekly letter to the parents. Students are fascinated with this. But there are drawbacks.
One reviewer was absolutely correct. We make mistakes. You cannot go back and edit your mistakes. You have to start from scratch, especially if the drawing is correct the writing is correct, but your audio needs correcting. There is no way at this point to simply redo the audio.
I also think that the developers should have a way for the person creating the ShowMe lesson to edit it at different times, too add or delete. At this point I don't believe that can be done. I believe that this is a five-star app, but because of the drawbacks at this point I'm giving it three stars. I so hope that the developers and the suggestions that many of the reviewers have posted. I forgot to add that there is a five dollar fee per month if you wish to add your students to some kind of class list. That is a lot of money per month, but if it worked really well it would be great. My question also is what about the security of the site with regards to adding students to lists.
Probaby the worst execution of a basic app... ever.
The ShowMe app is overdeveloped in its social capabilities, as a strong enough foundation in regard to the actual heart of the app has not been established; the drawing, saving, recording, and creative tools of this app have been done terribly. The ShowMe app at its current stage is like a Twitter with deficiencies in its text box or "post" button (i.e. the core of the app is too weak for the secondary social aspect to be used). And what's worse, is that teachers and education specialists merely judge the app by its purpose (and not execution) and thus implement the app without user experience (which is crucial in understanding the failure in this app). For improvement, refine EVERYTHING about the actual recording and creativity (or lack thereof)... take a hint or two from your successful competitors Explain Everything, as they exhibit a very desired simplicity with a better suited user experience.
Love this app, but why change image upload feature??
I use this app daily in my instruction & I appreciate the addition of being able to move to different pages, but why on earth did you change the feature that allowed you take pictures right in the app or upload from the web into the app?!?!? It was a real time-saver & it seems like a move backwards in usefulness. You now have to close the app, go to camera, take the images, go back and open the app and then upload them! I wish I didn't update this app--the image upload feature in the old version were far superior... I would give it 5 or more stars if you wouldn't have taken that feature away!
