My Take

Overall, I believe this a good app to use. I have tried a few others that did not have as many features. One thing I would like is the ability to edit photos within the app. I have to crop and edit my photos before adding them to ShowMe. Another thing I've noticed is when I zoom into the photos on the app, the photos overlap to the next screen, which cuts writing space from the next screen. I would also be nice to edit the video once its been recorded, for instance if I need to mute the voice at a certain portion, rather than record the entire lecture again.

How I Use It

ShowMe is useful to draw, write, and record lectures. I liked that I was able to enter in pictures or powerpoint slides to write on. Neither I, nor my students, are a fan of lectures consisting of reading off of a powerpoint. With ShowMe, I can fill in notes with students, while lectured over important concepts. This helps me pace myself with the students to ensure i do not lecture too quickly. Once recordings are saved on the app, they may be uploaded to the ShowMe website where students may access the lectures at any time.
