Customer Reviews

It's ok, but could be better

Underwhelmed with typography choices....
It would be nice if one could do typeface comparisons within a paragraph e.g. Title and body copy. See how two typefaces could work together. This could help folks new to typography (like myself). Maybe that option already exist I just have not found it.
This app certainly has potential to become a great one
