Best there is!
I have wanted my own font for some time, but it was either a pain to make on PC, or pricey to have someone else make it. So when I saw this app I was really excited.
I have tried the few other true font making apps out there before shelling out the $ for this one & this one blows them away.
Truly my only request is a paste function so that I can import from another app that I find easier to write in.
I noticed a few complaints mentioned in other review that are moot- specifically, there is a feature to adjust spacing, and there are adequate instructions. My 12-year old daughter figured out how to save her font so that I could email it later. Check out the website if you need some more help.
I cannot believe I have neglected leaving a rating for this app, for so long. My apologies to the developer for not doing anything to return the favor of the pleasure you have given. It is terrific, and the possibilities are amazing.
This is one of my earliest purchases, and first of many "Ah ha!" moments I have had with my iPad. I made my living as a designer, and I suppose that being a designer is a rather chronic condition – we never really recover. I can remember the olden days, when accomplishing the feat of making one's own font required a tremendous amount more of time and experience. Now, you can use the fonts you make with a number of art and typography apps! UTTERLY AMAZING! Thank you.
Really Love It But Needs A Couple Adjustments
The app is fabulous and I really do love it. However, a few adjustments will make it a 5 star app. Firstly, it needs to work in Portrait AND Landscape. Right now only portrait. For those of us that have keyboards like ZAGG for our iPads working in portrait is unacceptable. Secondly, it needs and eraser tool and multiple undo features. More help files would be nice as well so that we know how to use this fabulous app. Hoping that the developer will add these adjustments and make this a 5 star app. I am not sure it does what it states as I have a ZAGG keyboard and its difficult to remove my iPad from it...as its only portrait mode...
