WhatTheFont is a designer’s dream: see a font you like, take a picture with your phone, and the app will find it for you.
Before I start, let me explain: this app is the Shazam for fonts, and maybe even better.
WhatTheFont is the mobile app version of the well-known website MyFonts.com. The app can recognise fonts on any screen or printed material. All you have to do is point your phone’s camera, take a picture of the text, and the app will automatically look for text, identify the font, and come up with a variation of similar fonts. It even lets you try the font with your own text before buying it through MyFonts.
WhatTheFont is almost limitless: powered by machine learning, the app can identify 130,000 fonts, and identify multiple fonts in the same image – faster and more accurately than any existing website can do.
