Typeplace

Killbot Collective
[ This app is no longer available for download ]


Typeplace allows you to view photographs of stunning typography from all around the world.
Users snap and upload the typography they find, then this piece of type and its location is viewable to the rest of the community. But hey that's not all...


Depending on how many uploads you clock up, you get rewarded with cool stuff such as badges and unique certificates dispensed to leaders each month.


Using the iPhone camera or Photo Library - it’s as simple as snap, label and upload with the choice to post it to your Twitter stream.
With this, the application saves the location of the snap and plots it on a map viewable by everyone, where it can be upvoted.


You can view leaderboards and a map of the World plotting a random selection of Typeplaces and your current location so you can view any in your locale.


Your profile, which is handled by a simple login with your Twitter credentials, holds all your Typeplace related data as well as your ‘Trophy Cabinet” documenting your achievements.


Add friends on Typeplace so you can see what cool Typography they have been finding and what rank they've reached.


Typeplace is aimed at visual creatives with a passion for typography and want to have some fun along the way.
Our verdict: Ok
  • Typeplace is a poorly rated app (2-star).
  • + The app is currently free, instead of its regular price of $0.99.
