Great support and getting closer to full feature set!

The EE team are very responsive when you email with questions and problems. And you can see each day they are adding more and more features to the app to make it the same as the other platforms which have existed for a much longer time!

Too many issues

I purchased this app for my windows 8 laptop and it does not work like the ipad version. It crashes every time I try to export a video longer than 10 minutes. The delete button doesn't work correctly when recording (it deletes everything on the page when I press the garbage button or it doesn't do anything at all). When I upload a PDF longer than 1 page it only displays the last page (it does not put each page on a separate slide).

Power Tool for Win 8 Users

I like the app a lot. It helps to make videos for my classes. But it does not have all the functions as the version for IPad. There is no editing tool as well. They should work hard to get the app improved and polished before the users turn to other apps.

Explain Everything on Windows 8!

Love the file-picker integration letting me bring in everything I have in Box, DropBox, OneDrive, and OneDrive Pro. Also, being able to use this app in split screen gives it a huge leg up over the iPad app!

First impressions not encouraging.

I just started using this version, after good reviews for the iPad. First, it consistently crashes when recording videos with imported pdf files. I then converted the pdf to png, and it seemed to work, but the export (which takes 3x as long as the movie recording itself) only recorded half of the movie I made. Very frustrating experience!

App crashes every time I try to access a saved file.

Too many bugs...

Excited to use this with SurfacePro 3, but there are too many issues: 1. Crashes frequently and unexpectedly. 2. Erasing all annotations deletes everything and not just annotations. 3. The erasure function does not work. Back to the iPad version....

Problems with surface

I was very disappointed at the watered down version of explain everything. The app keeps crashing and I can't open saved files. Huge disappointment.
