I suppose that it very much depends on what line of work you’re in as to whether to think that this particular iPhone and iPod Touch application with either interesting or quite as cool as I do, but if you’ve ever come across a font in a magazine, on a billboard or just about anywhere and really wanted to know exactly what the font is (say to just it in a presentation, document or website of your own) then the MyFonts WhatTheFont application will undoubtedly prove indispensable.
Using the MyFonts WhatTheFont application to identify a font, simply snap an image of the font using your iPhone’s camera and the application will connect to the MyFont site via either Wi-Fi or phone network and it’ll cross reference the captured font with the Myfonts database to find the font in question. Marvellous.
Of course, if you use the application on an iPod Touch it’s not quite as broad in function (being that the Touch comes sans camera) but the application will happily identify fonts from web pages and mails, so all is not lost.
As I said in the opening paragraph, many will have no use for such an application but, for those interested in fonts, this is just about the coolest method of putting you in the know whenever and wherever required and we therefore have no reservation in featuring it here on EP.
