As a type geek this was a fun find. I love to review type history and I like the way this information is presented.
Initially excited, but then disappointed
A pay-wall after two out of five typefaces (and no additions in two years) equals a bad strategy for app design success.
Otherwise, nice app, though navigation is a bit confusing.
This is a fantastic app.. Wonderfully designed and looks great. Worth the price. Go for it.
