New web font service Typecast, from Belfast design agency Front, lets you try out thousands of web fonts before you buy - and more besides.
Belfast design firm Front has released Typecast, its browser-based web fonts app, in public beta. Typecast enables you to experiment with over 23,000 web fonts from Typekit, Fontdeck, Fonts.com and Google Fonts - even if you don't have an account with those services.

The app enables you to turn the fonts you selected into fully scaled, spaced, coloured and web-ready type systems of real content using simple visual controls.
The built-in CSS editor provides ready-to-go HTML and CSS, plus you can collate your document font choices into a style guide - handy for clients and when working in teams.
You're allowed to test your fonts outside of Typecast free for 30 days; after that you'll need to licence what you use.
