Thoroughly disappointing

Version 5.5.15
I initially really liked this app and used it for about a week before deciding to pay for monthly subscription.
Now whenever I open the app I am able to create a blank whiteboard, draw and record, however when I open any templates or menus the app crashes with no warning. It happens consistently when opening a blank template and then trying to open settings.
I get no warning and the app just closes.
very disappointed and I will be asking for this months’s money back if it doesn’t start working again!

Help it’s not working

Monkey Spasm
Version 5.5.14
I’ve got an upset child as nothing seems to do what’s should and we have no idea why as used lots before.

Ex Ev is good

Scout Five
Version 5.5.13
I have found using explain everything to be very straightforward and easy to upload


Version 5.5.12
I used to use this all the time to be creative, since I am 12. But now you want me to pay for features that I already had. It’s stupid.

Explain everything is awesome!!!!!

finlay mc aka mr oiggy
I love this because it is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Should be free to use as much as you want.

Version 5.1.1
I am a student and I want to be able to use this, but it only lets me make 1 slide and 3 different pieces of work. I need more but don’t want to buy the expensive one. Make it free for the expensive one.

Intuitive and productive

Version 4.2.3
I’m using this to support my lecture content. For me it’s an absolute game changer as I can provide additional support and content which the students love. I can use it to provide alternative ways to present material. The interface is intuitive and the software is very flexible. Even to the point of being able to insert a searchable browser window into the presentation. Easy cloud upload to and link to video can easily be incorporated into our VLE.

Removed features and now asking me to pay

Version 1.72
The app was great until they removed features and put the same ones behind a paywall. Paying for what was free. No thanks.

Explain every you know

Version 5.2.1
On blank canvas you can send and make videos and drawings

Sneaky marketing

Usually smiley
Version 1.92
I thought I was getting a free app with some optional extras but wasted time getting set up before realising its an expensive subscription app. There is no free option beyond a 30 day trial.
I don’t like sneaky marketing.

I use Explain everything for all my tutorials. It is the best platform on the market. Thousands of students have benefitted from these videos.

Version 5.2.4
Very easy to use. Our lower ability children love it.


Alice the spax
Version 1.76
This app is badder than bad ty alot alice

Explain everything

Version 5.0.4
This is a good game


Version 1.74
This app is great until it starts saying" subscribe to unlock unlimited features " and then it starts only letting you you use

Not bad app but constant demand to rate it - so one star

Version 5.0.11
Not bad app but constant demand to rate it

Shame it’s so expensive

None none
Version 4.2.4
Great looking app, got suckered into the free demo period. Then suddenly have to subscribe. Oh well.

It hijacks the way Doc files open

Version 5.5.7
The new update hijacks Doc files so that they are imported into the app rather than opened in the iPad’s native Doc reader. Well this makes the app useless as I only want this program to draw with. So now I’ve deleted it...

Not able to delete account

Version 5.2.6
I found that there is no option for deleting an account unless you contact them and it doesn’t tell you in the description that you have to pay after 30 days, so after you’ve signed up you realise that you will have to pay.

Well ,I am a student...

Version 5.0.10
Why would anyone pay for this app? There is more than enough free apps that do the same.
£9.99? Then subscription? Do people really pay for it?
You can get all that this app offers but in separate apps AND FOR FREE.
App seems to be a money grab for non-IT savvy people. My grandma could buy it tho...

Bad app! Don’t bother downloading oh it’s money down the drain

Kian Empson
Version 1.83
Now We have been trying to fix this app for months but your trials and prices are ridiculous. Get rid of them and you will get more users also I do not have £9.99 pay as there’s no point just to use classic and If you don’t get rid of them I will start giving you no stars. This was good before but you’ve just let yourselves down. If you want 5 stars get rid of the trial and on classic put the price from £10 to £0. Instead of thank you here to s a no thank you.

Super amazing

Version 5.0.3
I can’t believe It has explain everything Amazing feachares drawing it has everything thank you explain everything thank you technology


Version 4.2.7
It was great and I think that I love you

Guess it’s back to classic.

Version 5.5
The clipart function was very helpful for my projects, and then they make a subscription. I find it really unfair for people who spent money on this before that plan and are now basically forced to pay monthly. Quite disappointed.

Incredibly good app, look no further!

Tom G Mercer
Version 5.4.7
This app is an amazing piece of work, it’s clearly had a lot of thought put into it, as it has loads of clever features like stealth mode, so that you can zoom in and work on things but the recording doesn’t show that zooming. It has so many tools to help you quickly make videos that clearly illustrate anything you can think of. It’s also very intuitive to use so you won’t spend long gettting the feel of it.
I hope to see better pen options in the future. Particularly I would like a slider for pen size, and the size of the pen/eraser to be consistent so that when you zoom in, the pen stays relatively the same size as it was before, like they have in procreate.
I would also like pressure sensitivity for opacity and size, to give really convincing handwriting.
I’ve written to the team and got a quick response that they would raise these suggestions the following week with the developers and see whether it would be feasible.
An amazing app and seemingly an amazing team.

It is really cool!

ios gaming for dayz
Version 1.61
It is really cool cuz i know where all of my things are going but when i am writing with the pen the writing goes all messed up so maybe you can work on that :p

great new when features without whiteboard

Version 5.5.2
The biggest issue I have with this app is that they undersell it.
I was never minded to upgrade to the interactive whiteboard version because I didn't need that facility.
But actually this version has a ton of additional great features, such as object alignment that are not available in the cheaper version. And frankly this version, when paid annually, is still ludicrously cheap for what it does.
Oh and then there's all the new object fill suffer.
Overall verdict. Brilliant app that is way underpriced.

Simple and very flexible

Sandy Shifter
Version 4.0.2
Great tool for rapid generation of tutorials!

Great Product

Version 4.2.5
I've been using this on and off for a few months and just signed up for the monthly subscription. The app really allows you to open your mind up to new ways of getting things down and it is so easy. Pictures, video annotations, just making note taking more interesting.
Bye bye PowerPoint!

Subscription 👎🏻

Version 5.2.9
A huge let down by subscription scheme. Loyal customers who built the company are let down. Deleted it straight away.

Stick to explain everything classic

Martin Bateman
I've used EE classic for recording presentations for several years. This version seems to be a step backwards in terms of functionality from the classic version which I still think is excellent. They've moved towards integration with their own cloud systems and removed the ability to customise the output.


I paid for this app, but it is not working. The screen freezes after the get started screen. I want a refund.


The apps very good but why the he** would you need to pay a subscription are u trying to make child's bored or what

Subscription model!

What's going on EE? Why go to this subscription model.? Not getting enough money through sales? Shame on you for forcing students (parents) to pay a subscription. Time to move to OneNote.
