New app explores iOS 8 extensions to make it easier for Safari to identify fonts

When Apple announced support for app extensions on iOS 8, perhaps many of you did not imagine all the possibilities that this would open up. For we will highlight in this post a great example that has now become viable.

the app WhatFont, developed by Chengyin Liu.

Available for years as extensions for desktop browsers, WhatFont allows users to select parts of text on websites and quickly identify which font is used. Now that is also possible on iPads and iPhones / iPods touch.

On iOS, just select the text you want through Safari and go to the sharing menu, then selecting WhatFont. A window opens with all information about the font, including name, family, style, weight, size and height of the line. They are very rare, the cases in which he does not identify correctly.

Very simple and complete. Try it!
