Explain Everything Collaborative Theater Release

Explain Everything™ Collaborative Theater is our new app designed specifically for Apple TV! It is now available on the Apple TV App Store for free! Animate and record live puppet shows, design new stories, and create beautiful narrated visualizations together in real-time! Explain Everything™ Theater changes your TV into a live stage where you and your friends can create your own versions of well-known stories.

Based on the unique animation engine of Explain Everything™, the Collaborative Theater allows multiple participants to control different objects, characters, and other elements on the Apple TV stage at the same time for a fun collaborative experience.

It is the second Explain Everything product that allows connecting multiple users, allowing them to create and collaborate in real-time. So if your friends, colleagues, classmates, or students have iPads with Explain Everything installed,* everyone will be able to connect to an Apple TV and create a live collaborative experience — a puppet show, an story, an animation — together.

Features of Explain Everything Collaborative Theater
