Okay, so for some reason my laptop won't boot up - it keeps getting stuck on a black screen. It sucks! And since I do not back up any of my data (yes, I know, it's a bad habit, okay?!) all my logos and such are lost (I hope just temporarily). So while I'm waiting for my precious to be fixed, forgive the lack of DIY posts. Of course, I'll still try to make some stuff with thisWell..
kind of crappy computer...
Since I've been forced to use my phone for everything these past few days, I've come across this wonderful wonderful app which tops my app list. It's called Font2Go Font Maker, and it's available in free and paid versions.
|Font from my handwriting v.1.|
I've only tried the free version (here) which can only make one font (although in retrospect I guess you could just delete and re-do fonts although that would mean you'd have to install and re-install the fonts that you make since they give you just one .ttf file even if you've modified/saved/re-saved your font; and renaming doesn't work). Also, you can only make letters - capital letters, special characters and numbers are in the paid version. The paid version will also give you the power to make multiple fonts. I've made the second version of my handwriting available for download here.
|Font from my handwriting, v.2|
Anyway, what's the con of this you say? Well, you can only make fonts using your handwriting on your phone - you can refine your letters by using a stylus or something, but in the end, you won't be able to make really cool graphic fonts. Perhaps you could go around and ask everybody to use this app on your phone and then you'd have a whole batch of handwritten fonts!
They also have this mini editor in which you can add text to your polaroid-like photos. I'm definitely buying the full version (see here) - I'm such a sucker for things like this. Oh, just so you know, this isn't a paid 'review'. I'm just really hyped about this app. Anyway, what do you think?
