    "So this is a very fun way to get kids going in the classroom. In todays day and age, you need to integrate technology in a very unique way to keep kids attention in the classroom. With this amazing app, you can do just that. Throw it on all the tablets and conduct quizes, visualized learning, and teach you kids all from the front of the room without them having to open a textbook. I feel this is the next generation of teaching kids in a modern environment. "

    "10 bucks for a good art app is well worth it and hard to find. I was in a waiting while my wife had a doctors appointment. As usual i browse the app store and today i had my Ipad out with me. I happened on to an app called Explain Everything Classic. It looked like a solid art app so i grabbed it. The app has many options and tools even somethings i haven't really seen in an art app before. I am able to record while i sketch, even record audio. I can narrate my drawing while im at it. Which helps for Character design as i can just add ideas verbally before i even need to draw them. Also helps me from forgetting what my plans for a piece was."

    "It is one of the best apps and network for test prep including SAT, GRE, MCAT, TOEFL, etc. I prepared for GRE from this app and it is totally loaded with huge amount of content. This made me clear the exams. Would give it an even better rating than five star if there was. Amazing app."

    "I'm not sure how I feel about Dropbox being used as a solution here. On the one hand, it seems to be a site that encourages a lot of creative sharing and on the other hand it's not technically an app - it's a file sharing website that doesn't use or employ most apps. I would be expecting something more like Photoshop, MSPaint or any other editing software/tools that encourage direct creativity, not necessarily post-editing file sharing. I mean, I could still see this being referenced on a 'Getting Started' for art students, I guess."
