Released two years ago, ToonCamera is a fun photo effects and video filter app that turns your life into a cartoon, at least in appearance. Unfortunately, the app hasn't received a lot of attention. Therefore, providing a little reminder of its existence by sharing the news of iPhone 5 and fifth generation iPod touch optimization seems like a good idea. Along with expanding the user interface for the 4-inch Retina display, v3.3 takes advantage of Apple's much speedier A6 processor and iPhone 5's improved camera, including better low light performance. Combine these enhancements with those supplied in v3.2 and you get a satisfying feeling that Code Organa is concentrated on quality over quantity. In fact, that intent to bring a pleasurable and efficient experience can be witnessed throughout ToonCamera. The process begins with a full screen view with live effects previewing and buttons that adjust to either orientation. Every control and adjustment is selectable in just one or two quick taps. The options include nine effects, three line art styles, import or capture mode, LED light on or off, and iSight or FaceTime camera. ToonCamera is compatible with second generation iPad, iPhone 3GS, fourth generation iPod touch and newer running iOS 4.3 or later, and available in the App Store for $0.99. While functional on camera-equipped iPads, the user interface is not optimized for Apple's iOS tablet.
