Halftone goes beyond typical “photo filter” apps to give images a unique, vintage style that makes them look like they came from an old comic strip. With 27 paper styles, nine built-in layouts, two caption styles, six different speech balloon styles, more than 25 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, sent to other apps like Instagram, Camera+, and Color Splash, printed, and sent as a real, physical postcard.
This app has just been updated and you can read about What’s New below. This is a free update, if you haven’t already purchased this app, you can do so here. It retails for $0.99/£0.69/download.
NOTE: Location Services approval is required by Apple for Halftone to directly access your photos. If you don’t want to approve Location Services, you can re-enable the old image picker in the Settings app.
