Vintage is an astonishingly hot trend of late; leave it to fashion to make something vintage fashion forward! Whether you love retro glam, enjoy action packed comic books of the 50, 60s, or early 70s, or simply want to make your iPhone pictures more interesting like retro postcards, Halftone by Juicy Bits is a wonderful iPhone app to do all of the above.
Let’s face it. We have all likely downloaded an iPhone photo editing app previously and been rather disappointed by the effects rendered. Whether it is an iPhone app or software for your computer, photo editing titles tend to over-promise and under-deliver. I suppose that is why I love Halftone as much as I do. Halftone adds a vintage and comic book flair, with an underlying retro newspaper feel, to any and all of your iPhone photos.
Unlike similar apps that make the vintage / comic book photo editing claim, which often leave you with pixelated garbage, Halftone delivers! In addition to delivering the <BAM> and <ZONK> style of vintage Batman episodes and infusing a 2os inspired <Get Ye’ Get Ye’> newspaper look into your photo, there are a variety of effects and text style options to choose. You can determine the layout of both the captions and the title, as well as the type of paper texture you desire.
When considering pricing, the iPhone app Halftone accomplished what every developer should aspire to: deliver more app at less price. For under one dollar, you have access to a robust and unique photo editing app, where the only limitations are your creative elements. And, in the latest update, version 1.3, you can now send photos to Twitter, yFrog, and of course, Facebook. Additionally AirPrint printing is now supported.
So get your creative juices flowing, and take your photos up a full notch with Halftone.
