Juicy Bits today announced a new in-app purchase for Halftone 2, its Apple Editors’ Choice and App Store Best of 2013 winner Universal app for iOS. Halftone 2 makes it easy to create multi-page comic books by assembling photos from Facebook, Flickr, and the photo album. Users can add filters, customize page layouts, add speech and thought balloons, and so much more. The new in-app purchase offers over 50 licensed sound effect shapes from professional comic design and lettering company, Blambot.

“Customers are always asking us for more WHAMs, BAMs, and POWs,” says Mike Swanson, Founder of Juicy Bits. “So, we worked with well-known industry professionals, Blambot, to create a set of over 50 shapes that are included in the new Action Pack. Each shape is rendered using our custom vector-based graphics pipeline, so the final output looks fantastic at any size. We hope that our customers love them.”
