The Type Specimen App was launched in late February of this year. As the first of its kind, this free app acts as a font viewer for iPad. Once installed, you can begin to categorize & select fonts, view all available glyphs for specific font sets & access details of specific glyphs.
Another feature we love is the ability to combine & compare fonts – all from your iPad. Select the typeface you want, & assign it to a Headline, Subhead or Text area, choose your own combinations or from a list of presets. This app is particularly helpful if you’re in the process of selecting fonts for a project or publication – be it magazine design, web applications, book typesetting or corporate identity designs. Type Specimen also comes preloaded with more than two hundred original font styles.
