Identify that font: ‘What the font’ for the IPhone
I Needed to share this little story I spotted over at swiss-miss.com
MyFonts have introduced WhatTheFont for iPhone
WhatTheFont can identify a fonts name from an upload image.
The iPhone version of WhatTheFont uses the IPhone’s built-in camera to photograph the text, then the application allows you to crop the image and focus on only the important parts before uploading.
You then confirm the characters that are used in the image and the app gives you a list of matching fonts, great for grabbing fonts on the move when you spot one of interest.
I’ve tried it out and it seems pretty good, but of course it all depends on the quality of the image you manage to take with you phone, but for FREE you can’t go wrong really!
