Give your life a toon up with ToonCamera, a fun camera and photography app that turns your world into a live cartoon. Snap pictures and save them to your photo album, email them, or share them with others on Twitter and Facebook all from within ToonCamera.

Cartoon and other art style effects are applied to your device’s live camera feed through a form of automatic rotoscoping, a technique used in animated films that involves tracing over frames of live-action video with artistic strokes.

The most exciting effect (hence the reason that the app is named after it) is that of the ability to turn things into cartoons. You will be able to mesh a variety of styles and options to create fun little pieces of art with all of your pictures. Also, it’s nice to have the front and back facing cameras with the iPhone 4.
