Browse related fonts in the FontScout app

FontScout is designed to let you browse MyFonts' extensive range of styles, while simultaneously honing you in on that elusive, perfect typeface.

When you open the app, you'll be presented with a grid of popular fonts. Simply click one you like the look of and similar styles will appear. As you keep choosing typefaces, you'll steadily refine your list.
