Halftone 2 turns your family snaps into a comic book movie

“Meanwhile, back in the dungeons beneath Cult of Mac headquarters, an Apple-loving blogger tested out a new app…”

If you’re a fan of comic books (and, let’s face it, who isn’t?) the idea of transforming your personal photo gallery into a comic strip, complete with captions and onomatopoeic sound effects, is pretty tantalizing.

That’s the concept behind Juicy Bits’ comic-style photo-editing app Halftone 2, which has just received an exciting update, adding support for video that lets you turn your comic into a full-motion slideshow, complete with customized camera movement, sound effects, and music score.

It’s a great addition to an already fun app, and features an impressive library consisting of 50 sound effects — with another 50 available via in-app purchases.

Created videos can then be exported at a resolution of 720p and either saved to your camera roll, or shared directly via Facebook, Dropbox, and other compatible apps.

Halftone 2 can be downloaded from the App Store for $1.99, available for all iOS devices running iOS 7.0 and above.
