A proud member of the Evernote "Trunk"
[…] it not only has this local export feature included, but a raft of others that make it feel like a 2.0 or 3.0 release in comparison to the others I've tried in this genre - like import of PDFs, powerpoint or keynote files, and full Dropbox and Evernote integration. For those like me who use Evernote to 'remember everything', being able to pull in any note I have stored there and annotate over the top, or even record a narration, then export this enhanced note straight back is brilliant. For students, they can import an existing PowerPoint presentation and just draw and highlight over the top of slides, all the while verbally explaining, and export to a movie that encapsulates their understanding much better than the mere slides would.
For educators, it means the option to create video podcasts is now available whenever and wherever we require it.
The different pieces you draw, type or import become objects that can individually be manipulated (resized, deleted and are treated to be a on a layer that can be send to back, front, etc)
[…] Export features: I am not forced to upload the video file to the company’s site. I have CHOICES! I can export a screenshot of the slide I created to my Photo Roll (this feature is huge for me, since I can now import the movie file directly from here into iMovie on the iPad and make the screencast part of a larger movie), via e-mail, to Dropbox or Evernote.

Final Argument

The app designed specifically for presenters, teachers and lawyers, giving the ability to create presentations ‘on the fly’ using content from many sources.

Use the iPad to deliver your presentation in the most powerful way – taking advantage of existing PDF/Keynote/PPT slides, the interactive whiteboard, video recordings, being always in control of what's visible to the audience and what's visible just to the presenter.

Final Argument - a way of expressing your argument in such a powerful fashion, that there is no space left for disagreement.


• external screen support - the audience only sees the content the presenter wishes to display. If you receive an unexpected question from the audience, it’s easy to immediately create a new slide or add something to an existing one.

• non-linear presentation layout, with slides arranged in a mind-map fashion.

• close integration with Explain Everything™. You can import your .XPL projects and show them in a non-linear way. Presentation recordings are saved as XPL files, that can be later edited in Explain Everything.

• draw in any color, add shapes, use Bates stamps, text boxes, and use a laser pointer.

• rotate, move, scale, copy, paste, duplicate, and lock any object added to the canvas.

• move objects to and from a clipboard invisible to the audience.

• import photos and videos from the Photo Library.

• import PDF, PPT, DOC, XLS, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, and RTF files from number of cloud sources, such as Evernote, Dropbox, GDrive or WebDAV repositories.

• share presentations using Evernote, Dropbox, GDrive, WebDAV, Email, iTunes, and any app that allows you to open PDF or MP4 files using Open In…

• record your presentation to use it later as the meeting minutes.

• export the recorded session as an MP4 movie, PDF document or XPL project (Explain Everything™) directly from your iPad.

• upload your session directly to YouTube.
