App of the Day: Halftone

Bam! Pow! Turn your happy snaps into funny books with funky photo editor Halftone.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

I do like the funny books, so it's natural that I'd gravitate towards a photo editor that lets me turn my photos into comics panels. Like the name suggests, it overlays your images with a halftone effect for that old-timey newsprint look — but you can also add different colour effects; set contrast, brightness, saturation and sharpening with sliding adjusters; put in funny captions, speech balloons and sound-effect balloons; and select from a variety of layouts. You can either take the photos on your iDevice or import them to the app, too — and then you can share with the whole world via Facebook.
