#2 Product of the DayOctober 31, 2017

WhatTheFont uses Artificial intelligence to identify fonts in a design. Great for designers, crafters and anyone who loves typography. Perfect for when you see a great design and want to identify the fonts, or when your client sends you an image but doesn't know what fonts were used.

Around the web


  • Pros: 

    It's a great idea and simple to use


    Could not identify even Windows fonts correctly. Not even close.

    Example; Printed out our company name in Gilbert Sans MT Condensed - an installed font for Windows since ..... App suggested Lomo Wall chart Std 52, which is nothing like.

  • Pros: 

    You can get an bare idea what font they are using


    Fonts are often not recognized, and I as a user feel tricked

    I used this product multiple times, until I gave up. It doesnt matter what Font you scan, it will always show you some weird font that costs over 50 Dollars, and is on special Sale today. I cant watch in the backend, but I feel like they are cooperating with the font market in order to get shares.

    You can try everything, it will always find a font that costs a lot of money and is on sale currently. So definitely no use in this.

Hey everyone, we're excited to launch this brand new version of WhatTheFont for mobile! This app is super useful when you see a design in the real world or on social media, and want to know what fonts were used. With this release, WhatThefont is now powered by deep learning, and it knows how to identify 130,000 fonts. It can even find a close font match for hand lettering script styles. I did the UX design and acted as product owner for this app, so please feel free to comment with any questions or feedback. Happy font hunting!

@seahcb I played with it and it was not able to identify Roboto, Lato some other popular fonts. Is there anything special I need to do when taking the photo?

@iamtekeste You're not doing anything wrong. We're just limited by not having Google Fonts in the library currently.
