Explain Everything

Draw on the screen, import images and documents and write notes over them. Record your voice, save slides as images or video files. Imports from and exports to Dropbox, skydrive and Google Drive. Probably the most powerful and versatile app you could use.

For Maths, pupils and teachers can record calculation strategies and save the videos for others to watch. Take photos of questions and  use the pens, laser and highlight to pick out key information  then explain a solution step by step. Teachers and children can photograph childrens’ work and record an assessment. Import pictures and talk through sorting them in a Venn diagram.  Endless uses and possibilities.

Morfo Booth

Make an amazing talking 3D face from a photo of anyone, then record and send videos to all your friends!

Use Morfo 3D Face Booth with a photo of a friend, celebrity, pet or just about any object you can imagine - and quickly create a talking, dancing, life-like 3D character! Once captured, make your character say anything you want, wear wigs and makeup, speak in a silly voice, rock out, disco dance, suddenly gain 300lbs, and more.
