The Good:

You find a matching typeface faster than you normally would.

The Bad:

You don't have allot of options in choosing what your starting typeface is.

The Bottomline:

It is an interesting initiative of the makers of this online program. To try and make it easier for, for example graphic designers to choose a second typeface.

    What would/could a designer use this tool for?

    Maybe if you are really desperate to find a font to match.

    Depending on what kind of free this tool is, how “free” is this tool really?

    It is free to just use it for smaller things, but if you want it in good to normal quality you have to get a subscription.

    Please add any additional comments below:

    It is a pretty simple tool to use, but there are not that many options. so it gets boring fast.
