Find the perfect font with this new app

Finding that perfect font for your project is no easy feat. With thousands to choose from, sifting through for one that sets off the rest of your design work can take a long time.

To make the whole process easier, MyFonts (opens in new tab) have created FontScout (opens in new tab), which you can download to your iPad for free.

How FontScout works

FontSocut list

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.
