[prMac.com] Sammamish, Washington – Halftone 2, an Apple Editors’ Choice and App Store Best of 2013 winner, has added a new in-app purchase with over 50 licensed sound effect shapes from professional comic design and lettering company, Blambot. The new shapes add even more variety and style to the comic creation app.
“Customers are always asking us for more WHAMs, BAMs, and POWs,” says Mike Swanson, Founder of Juicy Bits. “So, we worked with well-known industry professionals, Blambot, to create a set of over 50 shapes that are included in the new Action Pack. Each shape is rendered using our custom vector-based graphics pipeline, so the final output looks fantastic at any size. We hope that our customers love them.”
Halftone 2 makes it easy to create multi-page comic books by assembling photos from Facebook, Flickr, and the photo album. Users can add filters, customize page layouts, add speech and thought balloons, position captions, place some WHAMs, BAMs, and POWs, and share their creations with the world.
Other recent additions include the ability to copy projects using the iTunes file sharing feature, the return of the Aviary image cropping tool, a new cartoon-style image filter, a new “faceted” balloon style, three new page layouts, and localization to German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese.
