Comparing Wixie and Pixie

Pixie and Wixie are tools that let your elementary students paint pictures, add images, edit text, and record sounds.

Pixie is software loaded on the client computer so it requires an installation and regular updates. Wixie works in a browser and runs in the cloud. With Wixie, there is no software to install and you benefit from updates as soon as they are available.
