Ratings and Reviews
Lacking in some areas
So this app is pretty great but has some issues that make it somewhat difficult to use. I’m still using it and the fonts I’ve created to have a more consistent and clean writing style on my art and my graphics. But there are some issues I’ve run into with this app that, if fixed, would make me love this app.
First improve/increase your “default” brush selection or allow for the creation of brushes. I get that this is a vector based system and you can create more complex details with the pen. But many users will not be familiar with how to use that tool. I can use it but I loathe it with every fiber of my being. This feeling existed before this app, I just really hate the pen tool in general. This is my main problem with this app.
Second, the learning curve is a bit steep I am someone who regularly works with the digital medium and I struggled with learning the ins and outs of this app. Even if it was just a couple of videos showing you where stuff is and how to use it that would help loads!!
Best font designer for the iPad
Is it perfect, no? Other than desktop apps there is nothing on the iPad that even comes close, iFontmaker is SO much better than anything else out there for the iPad. I love working in the app to design fonts and then I move them into Glyphs on my Mac and perfect them before selling. I love the interface, the easy guide helping make sure all characters are accounted for, and the improvements (like landscape) are a big plus. I do wish there were more brushes or the ability to upload custom ones...THAT would be the first thing I would ask for. They are currently limited...otherwise for at least 3-4 years this has been my favorite app to start my font design process.
Best app EVER!!!
I’ve always wanted to have a font using my hand style for CAD drawings. 30+ years in design as an engineer and technical illustrator. Used every form of Autodesk and other tools. Tried all sorts of SHX files. Never got close to what this app lets me produce.
I’ve never had a crash. Maybe older versions did. This one is fantastic.
Takes a little knowledge of font design to really make use of the power of this app. Grab a book on typography if you don’t understand why letter spacing doesn’t seem to work for you. Then go back in and adjust your letters using the advanced tools in the app.
If you’re a graphic designer this is a MUST HAVE. If you’ve just always wanted your own carefully developed hand written copy on your digital drawings, now you have a tool to do it!
Not a paid endorsement. Just stinking love using this app :)
