Reviews

  • Nikos Kantarakias"Hey! It compiles! Ship it!"
    Pros: 

    - fast!!

    - accurate

    - lots of fonts from different sites (free and paid options)

    Cons: 

    - crashes once in a while (not too often to be a nuisance though..)

    I knew this tool before it was posted here. Been using the desktop version for my design needs. Helped me many times when trying to identify fonts or trying to find similars to old lost fonts that do not exist any more or to commercial ones.

    Definitely recommend!

    100% success rate

    Look and feel of the app could be better and I'd love to see a native Linux version

There is yet another app to identify fonts from images: WhatTheFont. The main difference is that WhatTheFont only identifies fonts from MyFonts.com - because they want you to buy the fonts - while Find my Font identifies also free fonts of Dafont.com, Google Web Fonts, etc. It's the perfect tool e.g. to find the best Google Font alternative to a commercial font, because it allows you to visually search for a font in a specific category: All Fonts, Commercial, Freemium or Google Fonts. It's a free app available on both iOS & Android. I'll be glad to read your thoughts and answer any questions you may have. Enjoy! PS: More details on the App: => You can take a photo or use an existing gallery image => Identifies any Latin letter using an online database of 150.000+ fonts => More than 60.000 freemium(*) & free fonts are included (like fonts of Dafont and Google Web Fonts) => You can choose your preferred matching category: "All fonts", "Freemium", "Commercial", "Google Web Fonts" (ideal to find any Google Fonts that look similar to a commercial font) => It shows you both an exact match and a list of similar fonts to choose from => Type a custom text to easily preview & compare matching results to your original image => Identifies connected (script) or fragmented (stencil) letters => You can select the input text directly from any color image (no pre-processing required) => You can perform in-app image rotation and fix any perspective distortions for more accurate matching => Achieves accurate matching results down to 20 pixels text height! (*)"freemium" fonts: Sometimes the font publisher/designer offers the opportunity to download a font but that doesn't mean the font is 100% free for any use. It could be "free for personal use only", donation-ware or just a demo you need to purchase before use. It is the user's responsibility to acquire, accept & respect any associated font usage license before using it.

@fivos_vilanakis Great to see this and I have added it to my curations and will share it with my network - wondering what features the in app purchase provides?
Fivos VilanakisMaker@fivos_vilanakis · Software Engineer at findmyfont.com
@krishnade Thank you for sharing! The app is free but has a limit of 5 font-id requests per day + 20 requests on first install. You can use in app purchases to buy some extra credit or totally remove the credit limit: If you purchase the "Unlimited" product, you have unlimited font-id requests on all devices under your iTunes or Google Play account ;)

@fivos_vilanakis Thanks for confirming

My first thought was this would be a shitty clone of WhatTheFont. Very glad to see that's not the case and you have improved quite a bit. Awesome job. A web app would be much more useful than mobile apps in my opinion. I'd love to collaborate on a web app with you for this! Think of all the graphic designers working daily from their computers! A tiny bit of my work can be seen at: www.emersoncode.com

@philth_ Hi Phil! and thank you for your kind words and your suggestion. If we decide to go for a web app we'll be in touch for sure ;) We already have a solution for the professional graphic designers working from their computers. It's "Find my Font Pro": A desktop application which runs on your Mac or Windows computer and identifies all fonts of our online database + the local fonts stored on your computer (either installed or not). Regarding local fonts matching: You can identify text in any Unicode language and the matching speed is about 5 millions fonts per minute. You can find a comparison of all Find my Font editions here: https://www.findmyfont.com/downl...

@scotty_bowler Hi Scott! Thank you so much for the kind words and the review :)

@fivos_vilanakis My pleasure :) Your app is going to be really useful for me, so thank you!

Absolutely love the functionality, not sure about the aesthetics, at least on the Android version which is the one I used. Well done, Fivo, καλή δουλειά (you never see Greek on PH, I thought it was time for some :p )
Fivos VilanakisMaker@fivos_vilanakis · Software Engineer at findmyfont.com
@antonis_tsagari Thank you Antonis! :) We are bound to use a cross platform tool (Qt) to create the iOS and Android version and as a result there were some serious limitations on UI/UX design, but you are right we'll try to improve the app aesthetics on next update. PS: Yes it was about time for some Greeks on PH. Κάλλιο αργά παρά ποτέ! :P
