A love of typography and passion for preservation has combined to create a new Apple app called Fontly. The app allows its users to photograph interesting typography that’s posted in their surroundings and store the pictures in an online database. Posts represent various media, from marquees to painted advertisements on buildings. Through this database, users can browse new or popular postings and even explore posts that have been made in their immediate area.
