Is there an app where one takes a picture, and the app would recognize the font? If not there should be something like that, I've seen a website before that will take a Jpg and do it, but it wasn't very accurate, i forgot also the website, anyone have any recent news on websites or an app.

Find my Font is not an app. It's an inexpensive software program you will want to have on your system if you have a large library of fonts or have trouble remembering/recognizing fonts that you know you have or wish to search the net for a match. Both have their individual limitations and strengths.

Find my Font ....................

Great software, very economical, great value. If you are in this business, you can't afford not to have it.

What the Font is a wicked app for the iphone, finds the font within seconds and its free!! not sure about the android version but I would say it is the same.

I tried it on a nuvelli box, Bluetooth headset... and it got me a bunch of identical fonts, i was like woah. Android version is nice. It also lets me crop the image, and leave only the word orders letters i want to recognize
