Halftone 2 - Comic Book Creator

By Juicy Bits

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Halftone 2 is an Apple Editors' Choice app that makes it easy to turn your photos into comics!

The sequel to Halftone, named one of the best Photo apps of 2011, an APP OF THE WEEK, with more than 2.5 million downloads!

Halftone 2 re-imagines what it means to turn your photos into professionally-themed comic book pages on a touch device. Quickly and easily create stories that put words in your friends' mouths and thoughts in their heads. Add some WHAMS, BAMS, and POWS, and share your creations with the world.

Halftone 2 was built from the ground up to take full advantage of touch, and working with your photos has never been more natural. The radial menu makes it easy to customize all of your elements, and you can explore worry-free, knowing that undo and redo are a quick tap away.

The graphics engine in Halftone 2 is based on mathematical vectors, so all of your elements look crisp and clean at any size. Best of all, Halftone 2 "hand draws" its captions and balloons, so no two ever look exactly alike.

When you're done, easily share your masterpiece with family and friends via e-mail, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Dropbox, and more.

What's New in Version 1.2

+ Added 3D perspective to captions, balloons, and stamps (touch and hold an element, then drag to add perspective)
+ Enabled custom stamps, which means that you can add your own artwork and photos as stamps (user request)
+ Added sharing via text message/MMS (user request)
+ Improved Preview quality
+ Performance improvements and bug fixes

Customer Reviews

Great Features, Steep Learning Curve

This is a great app for creating cartoon panels from your photos. You can move and resize your photos and you can give them a hand drawn cartoon effect all in-app, combined with great captioning and stickers and a very realistic halftone effect. It has so many great features and so much customization that it can be a little overwhelming at first, and some of the best features are hidden deep in menus or the Aviary or Juicy Bits plugins. Some things like adjusting font size or the tail of a caption bubble are unintuitive or cumbersome, going in and out of menus several times to get it just right. It will take you some time to learn your way around but it is worth it.

Recent updates allow you to import your own sticker images from your camera roll--complete with transparency if using PNG images--providing a lot of great new possibilities.

Make it compatible for iPod again

This is a good app overall but the new update makes it unavailable for iPod.😢
