Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
When I first got this app, I thought the 1k+ of five star reviews were fake. NOPE. When you open the app, you can chose to get a tutorial or just wing it. The starter pack animations are GREAT, despite the fact that they may be considered “un-original.” You can buy more animation packs (with real money), but they are very cheap! They get down to $0.99, and the average is only $2.99-$3.99. Not bad! There are also plenty of FREE packs. I definitely recommend.
(My one issue is whenever I try and get a free animation pack, it says “Store Notice: Store unavailable - user is not authorized to make payments.” I can’t figure out how to get a free pack!)
