We love new type apps for iPad, & this one is perfect for the novice, & designer alike.
Typogrpahy Insight is a digital encyclopedia of knowledge for anyone wanting to learn more about typefaces. Only we can assure you – in a much more user-friendly, & intriguing way.
Typography Insight wisks you through the basics of type terminology, measurements, & type settings, while also allowing you to compare fonts side by side or overlapped.
It is now available to download on iTunes.
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.
You can watch a demo video for Type Specimen as well as download the app here.
