FLAWLESS... Except for two things.

Charleigh Jone

This app is amazing. I’m nine years old and I’m a big reader, and this might sound crazy but sometimes I seriously want to know the font of one of the books. I’m a writer, too, and I usually type my stories. It’s very useful to be able to know the names of the fonts I like. The ONLY two bad things about this app—and some might not even consider them BAD bad—is the fact that I can’t bookmark any fonts and you have to buy the ones you like. But get this app now, I’m serious!!!

Much Better!


This app is infinitely better since their fall 2017 update! Some things are still a little finicky, such as trying to draw the boxes around the text you want to identify. But boy am I glad we got this update! Much more useful and effective now.

I love What The Font... on desktop. Seriously: do not bothering trying the iOS version. It is barely functional, and it seems that the developers forgot about it years ago anyway.

Hey, we've updated! Give the new version a try.

Does this even work anymore?


This WTFont used to be super finicky, but at least I could get it to work (when I first read about it more than a year ago), now it gives no errors if it can’t find something, it just searches forever - I was in the middle of some design work and let it go for a half hour last night (just to see...)

Cropping/selecting the text seems unnecessarily weird considering how many native language API’s have this built in - image constantly re-sizes, re-centers, and re-sizes the crop/selection box in a way that doesn’t seem to have ANY correlation to what I’m doing to it, if you have text near the edge of the image, don’t even bother. I’ll get the selection box just right with my fingers, let go, and it snaps to something completely different, and drops (at best) the character at the end of the string I was trying to select.

Take aways:
-Fix text selector
-Maybe a better loading modal
-Give errors on timeout or empty result set
