Let this app WISEN you up. (We’re going to use that pun a few more times, so hold tight)
Can you tell Helvetica apart from Arial? How about Times New Roman from Baskerville? Did you know that IKEA doesn't use Futura anymore? And that there's a difference between a 'font' and a 'typeface'?
We couldn't tell the difference and didn't know those things either! That’s why we made this app so that EVERYONE can learn more about typography.
type-WISE will help you Learn how to tell two similar typefaces apart through our very secret technology. Once you're confident, you can Play games to see how WISE (there it is again) you've become. We believe that games are the best way to drive information deep into your soul. You even get a grade, just like school.. fun!
This isn't an app that will teach you everything about fonts or typefaces. But it's a start.
We believe that typography is an important part of communication, and the better people are at communicating, the better this world could be; what part of YOUR life can be improved through better communication?
+Relationships: How come those love letters in ALL-CAPS not getting the right response?
+Business: Why is it that your Comic Sans flyers not bringing in more serious customers?
+Work: Maybe that party invite email could've used a more readable font size than 72 Pt.?
+Family: ... Sorry. Couldn't think of how typography can help make your family less annoying.
If you've spent the time reading up to this point, you might as well install the app now! (please)
Crash fix. But not just any crash, it was a crash around purchasing new games!!
For all of those impacted we are really sorry. We hope you forgive us.
To make amends, please accept this cheesy typeface joke, on the house:
A sans-serif face walks into the street and is hit by a Swiss Modernist truck. The carnage is grotesk… but you know, akzidenz happen.
Ratings and Reviews
Can’t even open the app, and the last update was 3 years ago. The devs have clearly abandoned this game, so you (and the App Store) should too.
Never got a chance to use..keeps crashing. Please fix
Beautifully designed app with a very clean interface. Played all the games (didn't score very high) but enjoyed them. Could definitely easily get hooked on this. Nice job KSI! Keep it up!
