What is it about?

Halftone 2 is a fun photo app that lets users turn their awesome photograph stories into comic strips. Just import the images that you want to use, change the comic-style filter on it to suit your needs, and add fun stickers like thought bubbles, action effects, and even speech bubbles. Our photographs tell stories, and Halftone 2 is a great app that takes that concept literally, so you can make your own cool comic strips and share them with others. The app interface is fun and intuitive, and it's a great piece of software that everyone can enjoy.
