In Apps, Code, Hobby on September 15, 2011 at 3:31 pm

I’ve started getting into typography lately, and while I am still a novice I decided to start building an App showcasing the beauty of fonts. The App is named FaceType, a play on words of both the FaceTime product and the word Typeface. It’s open source, available here on github.

It’s iPad- and portrait-only right now because that’s sort of the way I envisioned it, though I’ve added some hooks in the code to fix that (switching both off doesn’t completely kill the experience right now).

I’ve also started downloading a whole bunch of fonts, mostly from dafont.com, to put in the App. I may add the program I’m using to do that as well in time.

Check it out! It’s pretty. Don’t know if it’s App Store bound or not.
