Room for improvement

It works decently well and has saved me hours of searching through fonts. That said, sometimes what is shows isn’t remotely close. It might that the database is limited considering how many fonts are out there. It’s not a deal breaker but it’s annoying that I have to delete the pictures I take using the app from my other photos. It would be nice if there was at least the option to only allow the pictures to exist while using the app.

Can be helpful at times

Key word here is “can.” The app can approximate a good amount of the fonts you give it to search for, but at best it’s results are more often than not just that: approximations. It rarely ever finds the exact font, and then sometimes it seems to not even know what it’s doing in the first place and gives back a host of completely irrelevant fonts that don’t even look in the slightest bit similar. Issues with getting an error message when searching fonts is becoming more and more common as well, and some days I can’t even get it to give me ANY results - good, bad or ugly. For simple font enthusiasts or creatives, it’s a fun “hobby” app, but if you’re really jonesing to find out the exact fonts you’re looking for, you should go elsewhere because you won’t ever find it on this app.

Not particularly helpful

The fonts identified often look quite close to your source image, but it overlooks commonly available font matches in favor of ones you’d have to buy from a developer.

Case in point: I couldn’t remember which font I’d used for a particular project from several years ago, but knew it was on my system. The app gave me a dozen close matches I’d never heard of and didn’t have. I finally tracked down an old electronic file, which showed me I’d used Haettenschweiler. It’s available on most Windows machines, but was nowhere on the list the app gave me.

It earns a second star for a clean interface, as well as for actually finding some close matches, but no higher because I suspect the developers are purposely skipping over commonly available fonts due to some kind of licensing agreement with font merchants.
