It's OK. There are numerous warping tools out there and this I guess is JUST another in the pool of warping apps. The one difference is that it does seem to handle warping better and is easier to use. Although, many editors have this as a plugin or whatever so I wouldn't bother to use this and uninstalled it. Those that need just a warping tool, this would be excellent for.
The program is so easy to use to produce humorous photos. Absolutely little to learn...just open a photo in the program and then click and drag on different areas of it to manipulate it to your liking. I'm sure there's little practical use for the program other than just having some fun. Enjoy it.
A good graphics program's smudge tool can do more than Cartoonist, but not so easily. With the smudge tool, you'd set the size/shape of the selection area, the opacity percentage, the hardness of the area's border, and begin; then, more likely than not, you'd change some settings, and continue; then....
With Cartoonist, all you do is set the size of the selection area with a slider on the main window and get to work. Suppose your selection area covers the end of a person's nose; you depress the mouse button and drag (your person now looks like Pinocchio). Don't like it? --undo; like it? --save. It's that easy.
Besides photos and caricatures, Cartoonist can "erase" or disguise distracting elements, make clouds and waves dramatic, etc. I'd like some larger selection circles, and I'd love variable rectangles, but Cartoonist's ease of use and excellent interface don't need improvement at all.
