    Does anyone have any suggestions for Android? WTF apparently has a great iphone app, but it seems like they took the Android one offline.

    this one is great to compare 2 fonts , letter by letter :
    " A type diff tool that visually contrasts the differences between two fonts"
    Edit the letters one by one ,select the fonts , and here you go ..

    You're reading a web page and you're suddenly wondering: what font is that?
    2 options :
    1 * In Firefox : Font Inspector is now available in the Firefox DevTools.
    In the Firefox Inspector, a “Fonts” panel is now available. It exposes different information about the @font-faces used in the page:

    * * * Font name and font family !
    Its location (system vs. remote, and URL)
    A preview (you can change it)
    @font-face code
    ------------------------
    2* Chrome Font Finder :
    You can check the source code or select some text, right-click and pick "inspect element". You'll probably find a list of fonts and you won't be able to tell which one is actually used.

    Chrome added a feature that tells you the name of the font that's used. This feature is available in Chrome 31+, so you can try it if you've switched to the Dev Channel or you use Chrome Canary. Right-click the text, pick "inspect element", switch to the "computed" tab, scroll down and you'll see "a summary of the typeface(s) used for that element". Paul Irish says that it "works great with Google Webfonts, Typekit, local fonts, @font-face typefaces, unicode glyphs, and all other interesting font sources."

    They're convenient and fast but I've never got an exact answer from those pages. But a similar font might be useful
    I'm using whatfontis.com and WhatTheFont from Myfonts. Hope they work for you :)

    Whatfont is helpful to find out what fonts is being used on web.
    For print, you can use identifont.com or Whatthefont in myfonts website.

    My choices are WhatFont chrome extension for fonts on the web. Print and images, I usually opt for WhatTheFont (both the wizzard and forum)...

    didn't know this existed for chrome. That's much easier than doing a screen shot and uploading.

    Too bad WhatTheFont only recognises fonts that are in the MyFonts store, so that can become quite a problem if you know your font is not probably not sold there. That leaves Typophile as the last option to ask experts what it might be :)
