Mobile Spoon Recommends: Halftone for iPhone

There are plenty of apps to add 'comics' style to pictures but I think that Halftone is the nicest of them all. Halftone lets you choose from a variety of effects, popup images etc.

It's working fast, UI is friendly – I love it.

Halftone for iPhone is an award winning app and now it is completely free (for a few days I think…) so hurry up and download it from here.

As usual, I just couldn't avoid playing with my own pictures…


From the original app description:

Halftone adds an aged halftone-style printing effect to photos to give them a unique, vintage look. With 27 paper styles, nine built-in layouts, two caption styles, six different speech balloon styles, 24 stamps, and the ability to choose a font (including three embedded fonts), photos can be customized, then saved to the photo album, sent via e-mail, shared with friends on Facebook and Twitter, and printed.
