iXplain Review

I used iXplain with 3rd graders making a video using Microsoft Movie Maker. The iXplain app allowed children to write the text parts of their movie (title page, credits, sections) using colorful backgrounds and pens. The app was easy to use, so students learned quickly. Also, the short videos were easy to add into Movie Maker as part of a larger video project. It is also possible to write over images using iXplain. Nice app overall.

I thought that this app was something similar to Doceri, but it wasn't. This app is more difficult to work with and unlike Doceri you can't upload a Microsoft Presentation, and then be able to write or talk through it. Overall, I would not recommend this app to other users. This app was very disappointing!

Crashes a lot and makes it difficult to make a quality presentation.

Video conversion does not work

The app is not really free. After I made my first video I found out the video converter does not work on my surface 2 pro. I tried everything that was suggested and even contacted the app maker. I was basically told they have no solution. I paid for a worthless app.

IF there was a help system. Unfortunately I can not figger out how to record voice and draw at the same time. The lack of any help is awfully Apple_ish!

Really wanted this to work

After seeing ScreenChomp on iPad, I wanted something like this for my school district. Unfortunately, it crashes every single time. Totally unreliable and a waste of time. Would give 0 stars if it were an option.

Great idea, a few irritations

Great idea - recommend you check their website to figure out how to use it first, because it's not very intuitive, but once you get going it's a good app. Exporting videos show the iXplain watermark until you purchase, but (when I purchased) the "Pro Feature" is reasonably priced, so no big deal. Biggest irritation? In-app advertisements on the dialogs, even after you purchase the pro version... Please, please, please turn ads off once people have paid for your product...

It Would Be Nice To Be Able To Add My Logo

since I have purchased the Pro Version. Yet I can't. Is Bull-Shit, yes? Okay? Good.

If I had but one way to answer

I would answer a question using this app. this is perfect for what I need it for. Ok so I cannot do multiple slides, it would be nice but I am not looking for it. Please keep up the development and may buy the pro version soon.
