Are you a graphic designer? Do you know the difference between a font and a typeface? Do your eyes light up when conversations turn to ems, kerning, and baseline grids? If you answered yes to these questions, then The Typography Manual for the iPhone and iPod Touch is for you!

The Typography Manual has several useful features and resources for designers, including a visual type anatomy glossary, a font size ruler, an em calculator, and enough content to fill a 60-page book. It has all the essentials of a desk reference in a pocket resource.

Requires iOS4.0

Current version: 1.5 - An update for iOS4 that includes several interface tweaks.


We’re eager to hear your thoughts on the app and what information or features you would like to see in the future.

If you experience crashes with iOS4, please update to Version 1.5 in the App Store.

There are currently no plans to bring the Typography Manual to non-Apple platforms, such as Android or Blackberry.

You can reach us directly to send along your comments, bugs, suggestions, or questions. We’ll respond as quickly as we can.
