Today’s app is quite specific but it is also brilliant when you need it. I use it quite often when I’m building websites and thought I’d share so you can become a font addict like me!

The app is called Fount (a pity combination of found and font) and it allows you to select the text on any website and then magically tells you what the font is! Awesome, no trawling through code just as simple select.

To get it to work you go to the website and drag the little button to your bookmarks. Then whenever you are on a site with an awesome font you love and want to know what it is you just click the button, select the text and bingo! See below for the final result!
