Warp-a-tron for the Blackberry Playbook has been updated to V1.2.
Along with the original wide range of effects you can add to the Playbook's camera (front or back), in real-time, a new 'Halftone' effect as been included.
This can give your images a magazine/newspaper 'print' look. Coupled with the background images, frames you can add and vignetting you can create some astonishing photo's straight from the Playbook camera.
You have full control over the size of the 'Halftone' blobs and rotation of the pattern. You can change the foreground and background colours or even opt to have the background transparent.

Warp-a-tron : Photo Effects - Updated to V1.3.1.
This update brings a brand new effect and a minor bug fix.
The new Displacement filter as seen in the images below refract the image in a particular pattern. There are a number of patterns to chose from and they can all be scaled and rotated. You can also adjust the strength of the image displacement/refraction and optionally add a psuedo depth (bump) to the displacement or make it transparent.
Here are a selection of images of Big Ben, showing the new effect.

@Xandrex - Thanks for the comments. Just so you know, there are definitely more effects to come. I'll investigate both of those types - I love the Tron styling but not sure how it would fit into an effect - I'll need a think unless you have a suggestion
Had a bit of a hard-disk crash which has stopped progress temporarily - hopefully will be back on track soon.
