SocialBook Vs. Viola ai Artist:
SocialBook is not the only cartooning tool available out there. Since cartooning images is the new trend these days so multiple apps are also launched recently which perform the same purpose. One of these apps is the Viola ai Artist app. You can download this app on your mobile and cartoonize your images on your phone. Just like SocialBook, multiple styling options are also available in this app as well from which you can choose.
The drawback of this cartooning app is that it does not allow you to cartoonize a full body image, unlike SocialBook. You can only cartoonize face front images on this app. Another factor which this app lacks is that you can not edit your cartoonized image. This feature however is available on SocialBook. SocialBook Photo Cartoonizer allows you to edit your photo as well, all free of cost.
