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.

It's a good tool if you want to pay for your fonts, but doesn't really show you the free matches

Pros:

Good and accurate scan of photos

Cons:

Mostly tries to recommnd fonts that are on sale on myfonts.com, and doesn't always give you the free recommendations

Thanks Eliad for your honest review. We started with the whole myfonts library. We will see how can we add more free fonts into the system.

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:

It's a great idea and simple to use

Cons:

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

Wow, this is dope 😍
Love the naming and the tagline
