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!

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."

"This is the jam. Seriously, THE JAM."

"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

Pros and Cons

I love this app because it is so creative and fun to play. I would of totally given this app 5 stars but the only problem is that it always glitches me off. Sometimes I’ll be on for a long period of time, then it will go off, but sometimes I will go on and it will glitch right off. I love this app so please can you fix it

Sam Stainton ,

Absolutely amazing 😄❤️

I have downloaded this app many times and have made many different videos during that time and I am telling you now, I have not once regretted it. This app is just beyond words, I have made so many memories with it so this is something just to say thank you, thank you so much.

P.S: May I suggest a scary-themed choice (e.g monsters, vampires, werewolves, ect), thank you again 🙂

This is an extremely clever app and it is just great to build their confidence(children). My suggestion is that you add more story themes to make the game a heap of endless FUN!!! But overall this app gets a five from me... PS Please take my suggestion on board it will be appreciated as I am hoping to pass this on to my friends children as a brilliant app...
Best Wishes... From Me
