If you love advertising and design, you know how important is typography. Fontly is a photo-based social network that goes a step further on specialization: people on Fontly shares photos of ads, posters, tags and any other type and signage. It claims to become a digital archive of real typos from around the World.
First off, signing up. Although there's no integration with Twitter/Facebook Connect, registering is as easy as adding an e-mail, username and password. After that, you'll have full access to Fontly database. The app is set in a good-looking minimalistic layout. It runs smoothly, even photo loading is quite fast.
Apps is divided in four categories: Latest (latest photos uploaded by all users), Best (best rated photos posted by all users), near (photos posted nearby) and Mine (your profile). For posting a picture you just need to press camera button and take it. It's a pity but unfortunately photos located in your gallery cannot be posted, just photos taken from the app.
You can retweet photos, like them, see where were taken and who posted it. An original approach of a hackneyed app concept. Recommendable.
Share the best of our world’s ghost signs, neon, architectural, foil lettering, hand-painted, and other typographical wonders. Preserve this invaluable part of our visual heritage.
How it works:
- Take a picture of found lettering.
- Title and tag the picture using the available categories.
- Your picture will be automatically geo-tagged and added to Fontly’s feed, map, and website.
- Share on Twitter, and beyond.

Comments and ratings for Fontly
I like the idea of this, but the implementation needs work. It would be nice to upload photos already taken, for example. Also, no matter what I do I can't get image thumbnails to show on the latest photos section or my own uploads.
Looking forward to seeing how this develops in the future, a great first impression and think it will be a well used app on the Note2.
Its a really good app even allows viewing entries regionally from a map. However the latest update thumbnails do not load, please fix. Xperia play 2.3.
Love your app, its really intresting thers are some things i cant do.. i dont know it might only on my device on the latest page it dosent load the thumbs, plus i when you open the picture to see it if you would be able to zoom it to have a better look it
I'm an art student and found this app very liberating and helpful for me...each and every people in the field of design and also typography lovers should definitely use this app... Keep up the good work and please include more features like effects and fi
I don't see the button to sign up/in
Pictures don't quite fit the screen and it frequently force closes. This app has potential.
