Trouble Shooting

If you are having any problems, one of the first things to do is make sure you have the most recent version of Explain Everything.

If the app is crashing:

1 First try closing all open apps (including Explain Everything). The iPad has a limited amount of working memory and if there are too many processes going on in the background, it can reach its limit.

2 If this does not help, you should try to restart your iPad.

Explain everything is a screen casting and interactive whiteboard app that lets you annotate, animate, narrate, import, and export almost anything to and from almost anywhere.
