What the Font?

Found a very cool and usefull iphone app called What the Font? It’s very cool. It’s a app that helps to identify a font.

So for instance, you take a photo using the iphone of a font.  You then crop the image so just the font in question is selected. It then uploads the font and processes it letter by letter and gives back a list of fonts that it think it might be. It takes a minute or so for the whole process, but that’s so much faster than it would take to go through the thousands of fonts I have installed.

So far it’s turned out to be pretty accurate and has helped New Guy Mike and myself figure out what font was used in some old print documents that were created before he worked here.

It’s a very cool app so check it out at the App Store, and oh yeah it’s free too.
