Weekend Goodies: FX Studio Pro, Halftone, My Sketch.

There are a few good deals this weekend. If you’ve been thinking about these, now is a good time to grab them. I’m a fan of all of these.

  • FX Studio Pro for iPhone is just $0.99 [link]
  • FX Studio Pro HD for iPad is just $1.99 [link]
  • Halftone (Universal) is free [link]
  • My Sketch (Universal) is just $0.99 [link]

My Sketch was just introduced this week. I gave it a try and overall I like it for a version 1. There are definitely a few things I’d like to see added, but it can produce some nice images (maximum size is 2048 pixels along long side). I’ll try to write up a longer review about this app in the near future. Below are some images I created using My Sketch.

Weekend Sale/Freebies

There are several apps that are on sale this weekend that you don’t want to miss out on. Phoster, ToonPaint, and Photo Soft Box. ToonPaint was recently updated amid a bit of controversy over in-app purchases, change of the UI, adding full resolution but removing a smoothing feature. So this weekend you can get that one for free! The others are are mere buck (or $0.99 if you forget the penny).

Don’t miss out on ToonPaint. I use it a lot. The developers do listen to feedback if you drop them an email in the app.

Links are here, along with shots that made use of each app (although more than one app was used for each).
