I tried out this Explee app a few weeks ago with my grade 5 students and they loved it! Within 20 minutes they were producing and sharing cool looking animations. In fact, another teacher thought we were watching a professionally made video about Explee when we were viewing the students work.
I am sure the hand-drawing tool will get overused by kids in their animations but that would be a good time to bring up tips about creating an effective presentation.
The downside of this app is that there is no the free version for education use. There is a 14-day trial that you can use and you are able to download the videos as a .mp4.
With the ease of learning Explee and the ability to download the students work, it makes for an effective app to use for free during the free trial.

Here’s a video tutorial to show how easy it is to use.
