Digits Calculator

Digits Calculator

Josh Distler

This is one of the coolest calculator apps I have seen. Not only is the typeface in Helvetica, but, you can also change the color palette of the backdrop or foreground, and the aspect ratios from landscape to portrait. Josh at shift-apps did a great job with this app and evokes the simplicity and comfort one needs when crunching sick financial numbers and the tape feature is key!

MyFonts

a very useful designer utility to capture a snap of type in the real world for reference and research. quite simple to use but a tad slow depending on network speeds, it is uploading/downloading multiple fonts for comparison after all.
