Write, direct, and star in your own TV show with TeleStory!

From the creators of Toontastic (iTunes Hall of Fame, NY Times "Top 10 iPad Apps"), TeleStory takes you behind the scenes to create and broadcast your own TV show! Record a music video, teleport to an alien planet, film a high-speed-chase, or perform on a reality TV show - TeleStory is a TV studio in your pocket.

Creating a TV show is as easy as...
1. Pick a theme, then mix and match over 30 animated scenes to film your own story
2. Craft a script using our playful TV tropes (or write your own)
3. Dress up in 50 different digital costumes with face tracking
4. Perform and record your own show with animated settings and special effects
5. Broadcast your by exporting it to the camera roll and then sharing your creation with family and friends around the world!

"TeleStory gets my kids off the couch and acting out all sorts of misadventures around the house - just like I used to as a kid - and RECORDS them for us to watch and laugh as a family. It's like a video game, a movie studio, and a gym all rolled into one. Amazing."
- Sabrina | Evanston, IL

"This is the jam. Seriously, THE JAM."
- Christopher (age 10) | San Francisco, CA

"I love that TeleStory is a lens for my kids' imagination - our living room transforms into a stage and our backyard an alien planet. They're not watching TV anymore... well, not as much... they're creating it."
- Evan | Berkeley, CA

I have had this game since the start of 2016 but now it just keeps crashing. If I try to do anything at all like watch some of my old movies or make new ones it just won’t let me. If you would fix this it would be highly appreciated, but unfortunately, until then I can’t give this game a higher star rating.

A note from launchpad toys

Hey launchpad toys… TeleStory looks cool but you have to bring Toontastic 2d back so everyone can play it… but you deleted Toontastic 2d because of Google… Google made Toontastic 3D but bring the old Toontastic back! It’s Toontastic 2d and it’s got deleted for somehow… why did you always do this? I was like I’m going to play Toontastic 3D and Toontastic 2d got deleted and everyone can’t play right now… I remember that… Toontastic was so cool with 3D and 2d but 2d got deleted… you just made TeleStory when people played TeleStory and no Toontastic 2d… OH YEAH DID I MENTIONED YOU DINT RECOVER TOONTASTIC 2D? NO… Somehow People need to bring back Toontastic 2d of launchpad toys of Google and that what just happened… anyway I had enough chatting…
