Halftone 2 – Updated

Halftone 2 can now create 3D comics! Put on your 3D anaglyph glasses, and watch your balloons, captions, and stamps pop right out of the page.

Halftone 2 for iPad was released less than two weeks ago as an Apple Editors’ Choice, and since then, it’s had nearly 250,000 downloads.

The developers heard from users that they wanted more graphical elements in the free version, and they’re proud to announce that the update that is now available in the store (version 1.0.1) adds more captions, stamps, paper textures, and layouts.

They have also added a new 3D anaglyph feature and the ability to easily share output with the Instagram app (including a square layout for Instagram fans).

We recently published a wonderful tutorial using Halftone, if you missed that, please go here. It was also featured over at dpreview.connect, see here.

Halftone 2 is free and you can download it here (there are in-app purchases though).




Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus.

And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine.

    Not impressed with this app in the slightest. The update made very little improvement. Yet another app ruined by in app purchases. Instead of enhancing an app they are used to enable the app. Without the in app purchases the app is so crippled it is not much fun or use.

    Buy the old version instead, it is much better!!!
