[prMac.com] Sammamish, Washington - Juicy Bits today is pleased to release an iOS 5-compatible update to their Halftone app that takes advantage of new Twitter functionality in iOS 5 and adds the ability to send and receive images from apps like Instagram, Camera , and ColorSplash. Halftone has been selected by Apple as its App Of The Week in both Canada and the U.K., has had over 750,000 downloads, and has a 4 1/2 star rating in the App Store. Halftone goes beyond other "photo filter" apps and gives images a unique, vintage style that makes them look like they belong in an old comic strip.
Users choose from over 25 paper styles, select a built-in layout, and add word and thought balloons with a couple of quick touches. Over 25 stylized stamps can be placed on the photo including sound-effect words like BLAM!, bar codes, coffee stains, swooshes, and explosions. Finish off the image with any font, including three special licensed fonts. When complete, Halftone images can be printed or sent directly to friends via e-mail, Twitter, and Facebook.
