New iPhone app: Manga-Camera – turn your friends into Japanese cartoon characters


Not all Japanese comics are child-friendly, but the Manga-Camera app certainly is.

It’s a simple idea. Load up the app for your iPhone and take a picture. It then converts that photo into a Japanese-style comic, complete with comic-style effects. Once you have chosen your background, you can save the finished snap to your phone library or you can send to to Facebook or Twitter.

Best of all? The app is free to download. But here’s a tip – make sure you use it in good light or the results are more than a little sketchy.
