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...
I am am in LOVE with this app. I have made a ton of my own fonts and use them on every worksheet and flier I create. I am a kindergarten teacher, and create my own lessons for sale, and being able to create and use my own fonts has helped me glide right past the buying and crediting of other people's fonts in my work. I am often asked to share my fonts and I recommend this app every chance I get. Thank you for creating such a quality app. It is worth every penny!
