All feedback is much appreciated!
Interesting enough to give it a go, but for me it does not really provide value. I'm wondering what problem you're solving? Personally I love the UI/UX of font-sites like Google Fonts and Monotype.com.

Your app lets me search for one font and then a theme is presented in that font. I always make font-pairings and play around with weights/size. Which is not possible. Also I provide the font myself, so there is no discovery/assistance. I must conclude your app does not provide value to me.
@bhennphof Hi! Thank you so much for your feedback and time πŸ˜€, let me explain you a couple of thing that maybe aren't very clear.

Our solution is giving a easy and fast way to preview fonts before you use them, no downloads needed and different ways to do it.

1. this new version will be available with 3 different preview modes:

- Plain Text: You can preview the font on all different characters and an editable paragraph, in this preview you can change some attributes as Font Height, Letter Spacing, Text Transform and alignment.

- Ui Preview: As the name says, in this preview you can see how the font works on different UI components such as Buttons, Text Cards, Inputs etc and you can change their text and some styles

-Branding Preview: In this you can upload de logo or symbol that you want to test and you'll get a preview on different branding mockups.

In all the previews you can compare 2 font families as max

2. Each one of the previews can be downloaded as a PNG image and if you're working with your team and want to share the font you can have a link of the preview with the fonts used.

3. You can download the fonts to your computer or embed them on your site with some css links.

4. If you are font designer you can upload your fonts and that font will be available in out platform later, then our users will be available to preview, test and download the fonts that you share

5. We want to create a free font library, such as google fonts too, working with independent foundries as http://www.omnibus-type.com from Argentina and font designers.

I hope this can be more clear for you, again, thank you so much for your feedback, if you have any additional question, idea or point of view i'll be glad to read it.

Best,

AndrΓ©s.

This is exactly what I need right now. Recruiting the right participants is quite the barrier in User-testing. So good that you guys are attacking the problem. Shame I can't afford it. 5 x $75 for a simple test is quite the investment for a startup company. And that's only one test..Anyhow, good luck non the less.
Hey @bhennphof, I feel you! It's definitely expensive right now and our dream is to make it as affordable as possible so that more teams can be testing straightaway. We currently have 2 prices - $49 and $75 and we have a special running at the moment where it's $49 per participant when you book through the platform. Thanks so much for the support!
