Ratings and Reviews
When I first got this app, I thought the 1k+ of five star reviews were fake. NOPE. When you open the app, you can chose to get a tutorial or just wing it. The starter pack animations are GREAT, despite the fact that they may be considered “un-original.” You can buy more animation packs (with real money), but they are very cheap! They get down to $0.99, and the average is only $2.99-$3.99. Not bad! There are also plenty of FREE packs. I definitely recommend.
(My one issue is whenever I try and get a free animation pack, it says “Store Notice: Store unavailable - user is not authorized to make payments.” I can’t figure out how to get a free pack!)
FLAWLESS... Except for two things.
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!!!
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.
