Compress Explain Everything for iPad screencast project files (.EXPLAIN & .XPL) directly on your Mac.

Instead of waiting for your iPad to compress your screencasts, you can transfer the project files (via iTunes sharing, Dropbox, Box, WebDAV, Evernote, GDrive and other cloud services) and convert them to MP4 movies with resolution up to HD 1080p (4:3). This is especially useful for presentations that use inserted video objects.

Multiple files can be added to the Explain Everything Compressor queue and while the files are compressing, you can continue to do other work on your computer.

Explain Everything for iPad and iPhone is an easy-to-use design tool that lets you annotate, animate, and narrate explanations and presentations. You can create dynamic and interactive lessons, activities, assessments, and tutorials using Explain Everything's flexible and integrated design.

Use Explain Everything as an interactive whiteboard by projecting your iPad or iPhone via a cable or Airplay.

Please note that the Explain Everything compressor will only work with projects created using Explain Everything version 1.71 or later (current Explain Everything version is 6.0).

Version 3.32
Review by jachavezd

I should have bought it earlier! - I make videos for my classes using Explain Everything. Exporting the project file as a video file was my least favorite part of the process, because it would take foerever on the iPad. I was not very convinced about spending money on this seemingly unnecessary app, but I’m very glad I did. Generating the video file was super quick, and it’s very convenient to have it already in the computer instead of having to transfer it. I haven’t had trouble with the app, but I have not been using it for long.

Review by MixedUpMike

At this point, I would say DO NOT BUY THIS APP - I will contact customer support and see what becomes of it. If it gets resolved, I will be sure to update this posting, but as of right now, this is a completely nonfunctional piece of software. The farthest I've gotten is 7 seconds into a compression before it crashes. 7 SECONDS! I can't even begin to assess the viability of this app, since it simply DOES. NOT. WORK. I am running a 2 GHz Intel Core i7 MacBook Pro with 8 GB of RAM, and my projects were created on an iPad 3. Both devices are 100% up to date with software updates, so there should be no issues there. It simply does not work! Like I said, if this gets resolved, I'll happily update my review.
