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

it's not so good with newer versions of iOS.


I have an iPad Mini 2 and an iPhone 6 and they're both updated to iOS 11.1.2, a software update that Apple has harassed me to do. I've been using Telestory since it came out. TeleTube was my favorite. You guys took that away from the app, but I still supported you guys. Now, 2 years ago, was your last update. It's almost 2018, and you haven't updated the app since. Which makes this app unusable for iOS 11. Please, just please. Make it compatible. Thank you.

It’s fun but for some reason today I was gonna make a news story and when I was about to start rolling it just kicked me out. I tried a million times and it didn’t work. I even deleted the app and downloaded it and it still didn’t work. Please fix this issue and I will rate five stars. It’s an overall good app, besides that problem. Thank you if you read this.
