Font-finding app

WhatTheFont is a free app that you can use to discover a specific font. If you see some text and don't know the typeface, all you have to do is upload it into the software. The app will search its database and show you which one it is.



You can use WhatTheFont in two ways. You can either transfer an image into the app to search for it or take a photo of the text. The programme will take care of the rest. If it discovers the font, you'll ghave the option of buying it from them.

WhatTheFont will show you the name and image of the text. It also lets you test it out within the application to see if you want to use it or if you would rather keep searching for another option.


The main issue with this font finder is the many existing problems. The first one prevents it from finding the proper fonts. WhatTheFont also suffers from a bug that prevents it from showing a physical description of search results; it only shows the name. 

Another drawback is that it often gives a false result that looks nothing like the picture that you gave. It rarely returns free solutions, instead presenting you with options that include purchasing. There's also no way to save your searches.


Find my Font is an alternative that does not suffer from the same problems faced in WhatTheFont. You can rely on it to find what you want efficiently. Also, the developers offer freemium texts unlike the unfortunate lack of them in WTFont.

Unfortunately, there are no other applications to find the type of script used in a document, but Font Rush is an app that offers a variety of scripts. You will likely find what you are looking for in the programme's database, but you might have to look awhile.

Poor service

In conclusion, WhatTheFont is a poor choice for those who need a font finder. It is ridden with glitches that prevent the software from doing its job properly. Also, the constant barrage of script styles that you must pay-to-use is off-putting. The alternatives are better options for downloads of this application.
