Web designers, graphic artists and typographers can now use the WhatTheFont app on the iPhone to track down and identify fonts they are curious about using uploaded pictures. The app is free and is like Shazam for fonts.

Ever wonder what font is used in your favorite cereal box, TV show, or perhaps to print your favorite T-shirt? Just open up the WhatTheFont app on you iPhone, take a close-up picture of the text and upload it to their servers. The app lets your crop off the exact part of the picture that has the font for better precision. The service works great if the pics that are not blurry, taken with solid background colors, and in well lit areas. Also be sure to use the built in crop tool to get a nice clean cutout of the text. After you tap upload, the app scans your text and breaks them down into letters with what it thinks the letters are. and returns back a list of possible fonts that match your uploaded clippings. Keep the letters you want and tap “Identify” to see a list of font matches returned.

Tapping each font in the results loads the font details page where you can see a sample of how the alphabet looks along with the font history and the font designers contact details. From here you can email the font details or view more details about the font and purchase it at the WhatTheFont website from within the iPhone app.

This 3rd Party App is available at the Apple iTunes AppStore. Browse the full list of all AppStore apps filed under the AppStore category.
