Just want to draw and cast from my phone to a local TV. As the version numbers increase it takes more and more time to get away from the tutorials that are persistent and stubborn. And now most of the screen is covered by buttons. There's no room to draw anything. I've gone in search of another app. What a waste.

I wanted to like it. The interface on a whole has a good design. Though the recording functionality is in the worst place possible, and gets triggered often. I know it can be moved, but I'd prefer to not even have it present (unless I want it.). The biggest problem is constant connection issues, and problems sharing boards. The only reliable way I've managed to share a project is with people who have created an account. This method is not ideal, and is an awkward thing to require stakeholders to do.

Updated comment, still 1 star! I want to like it. Tried it 1 year ago, but figured I'd try again given the shift to remote learning. Its fatal flaw is still the same - too difficult to use. Basic things like scaling images and inputting text - easy & the mostly same across many presentation programs - are done entirely differently in EE. It took hours to put together a few images and a bit of text for a 10 minute video. I'm pretty tech savvy. It should not be this difficult. I'll stick w/PPT.
