halftone 2

Apple has just named “Halftone 2 – Comic Book Creator” its App of the Week for this week. This means that from now through next Thursday, you’ll be able to download the fun comic book-style photo editor for both iPhone and iPad for free—a solid savings of $2.

Halftone 2 makes it easy to create comic and scrap books with your images. Simply choose a page layout, apply photo filters, position your captions, add speech and thought balloons, and share your creation as an image, multi-page document, or high-definition video.

From the App Store Editors’ Notes:

Don’t let the comic-book stylings fool you—Halftone 2 uses sophisticated photo processing to make your pictures look like they were printed on aged newsprint. This sequel introduces new features like multi-panel layouts and an even greater variety of stamps, fonts, and effects to give your stories more pizazz, not to mention a well-placed KRAKK, BOOM, or BAM.

And here are a few more screenshots:

As Apple points out, Halftone is a well-made app with sophisticated photo processing capabilities. So even if the comic book theme isn’t your thing, it’s worth picking up for free. Version 2 is fairly new, but the original Halftone had a rating of 4.5 stars in the App Store.

You can find Halftone 2 – Comic Book Creator in the App Store for free.
