There are quite a few screencasting apps on the Windows Store, but one of my favorite ones is iXplain, a new screencasting application that lets you record your voice and pen.
The new iXplain utility on the Windows Store is a screencasting app for recording a lesson or to explain something. You can use it to record your voice and pen, and you can even use images to annotate on them. Also, the app creates a mp4 video file which can be easily shared through email, upload to Facebook, YouTube or other social media. How cool is that, right? Let’s have a look at some other features.

It’s really cool that iXplain allows you to record your voice and pen drawings at the same time, which is a really neat feature and one that will help those who want to teach things remotely.

The app is available in the following languages – English (United States), Japanese, Japanese (Japan), Italian, Italian (Italy), Dutch, Dutch (Netherlands), Turkish, Turkish (Turkey).
