We've loved seeing the creative ways that our community uses Evertoon to make videos. From animated fan fiction to celebrity satire to music videos, it is a surprise each week.

We created Evertoon in order to democratize storytelling. We noticed the advent of #OscarsSoWhite and saw how people feel pressured from social networks to be increasingly photogenic. Our mission is to use animation to enable video creation for anyone with stories to tell, regardless of their looks, race, or age. It has been wonderful seeing this come to fruition in our diverse community.

Through the course of our company, we learned a great deal about building community and social experiences, and got to know other companies who would derive great value from this. In October 2017, Niantic acquired the Evertoon team. We are using our technology and expertise to add a social platform to Niantic’s amazing roster of games, including Pokémon GO, Ingress, Harry Potter Wizards Unite, and future titles. We’ll also be contributing engineering leadership experience. Niantic’s games are unique in bringing people together in the real world, and we’re excited to weave our expertise into them.

We put Evertoon into offline-mode-only in December 2017. If you download the latest version of the iOS Evertoon app from the App Store, you will be able to use offline-mode to continue making animated videos on your phone.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being on this journey with us.
