Explain Everything

Explain Everything
When it comes to flexible iPad apps, nothing quite fits the bill like Explain Everything. Developed as a screencasting app (in my opinion, the best in the app store), I have recently found that I am using the app for anything but screencasting. 1. Image / Poster / Graphic / Diagram Creator: The way I find myself using Explain Everything these days is as a platform to create images or posters. With the built in free hand cutout feature, the ability to import pictures from the iPad camera roll as well as any cloud platform that you have connected to the app, any image can be imported into a blank slide as part of a creation. 2. One of the most underutilized features in Explain Everything is the magnifying glass tool in the left hand menu. *Bonus Idea: Students can use the zooming feature when screencasting in Explain Everything as well. 3. 4. Explain Everything has the ability to open a number of file types using the iPad “open in” feature.
