30 Hands projects and presentations - A F 13-14 (6/2014)
I have been using this app with my students who are ESOL Levels 1-4 which allows me to differentiate instruction. The children seem to have a heightened sense of accomplishment/pride in what the are able to do on grade level with interesting assignments.

Simple, Intuitive, and powerful - NDAWMM (6/2014)
This app is a fantastic tool for creating presentations at all levels of sophistication. It is simple to use, but still has powerful editing, recording, and drawing tools integrated. It can be extended for use with their online course presentation and learning management tool (30Hands.net)...This is an app that you don't want to miss.

A GAMECHANGER because - Topvidreviewer
... They got the GUI right. 30 Hands hits the perfect balance between ease of use utility and features. Brilliant, intuitive layout. Literally anyone can QUICKLY create a wide range of videos, demos, tutorials with this app. Throw in a little creative juice, and you can do some pretty sophisticated things with it. I use it for both teaching and business. Want to create a slideshow-style video? Download. This. Now. There IS no easier app for it. I know, because I have them all. This app leaves them in the dust. Why? Simple. Easy. Works. It is near-perfect in my mind.

Fabulous app! - mray29
Great app for digital storytelling, social stories, or tutorial creation! I recommend this to all the K-12 teachers I work with in my district. Extremely easy to use and publishing is a breeze! I was experiencing a few issues during publishing, but these were resolved quickly after I contacted the developer. Customer service is fabulous! They listened to my comments and actually worked to address my needs. I highly recommend this app!

Great app! - @slfirstgrade
This is a great app to use with my first graders…Definitely a No. 1 choice of app in my classroom!
