I think the first ever FontStruction made entirely on an iPod Touch. Made in a great hurry (see description) with fumbling fingers so pretty awful.
look more like a ART PERFORMANCE :)
maybe you could have filmed you ! and put it in accéléré
(not sure about english verbs tense)
classy 3x3 pixel font. nice job
Nice one Mr M. Squeezing those tech boundaries 'til they cry uncle :)
Bravo! It is quite an achievement, given Steve Jobs stubborn rejection to let Flash run on its iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad devices.
However, I don't see the point to give positive publicity to a company which consistently trashes Flash, the very platform Fontstruct depends on. Flash is more than just banner ads and video on the net. Flash is a robust cross-platform development tool for Rich Internet Applications; its ActionScript 3.0 is a fully fledged object-oriented programming language. Every fontstructor should know about Flash' superior font rendering capability. We all know Flash is great, as it continues to evolve and adapt to the new environment, it will stay with us for many years to come. I can't wait to see the first font created on an Android based device with fingertips. Hopefully, Rob is already working on the multitouch version of Fontstruct 3.0.
(See my previous rant on the iPad here: Optill 3B )
@Upixel yes you're right, a video would make sense. next time i’m FontStructing on the iPod i'll see if i can record it.
@Frodo7 I didn't intend to promote either the app or the device. It was just a bit of fun. It did show to me how easy it would be to use FontStruct on a small multitouch device which really supported Flash. I'm looking forward to seeing FontStructions made on Android and other systems.
@elmoyenique thanks for the suggestions. next time I'm FontStructing on the ipod i'll try and make some adjustments to the design. The first time around I was only interested in getting to the end of the alphabet as quickly as possible ;-)
I actually can't. It doesn't load for me on my iPad. I am right now on it
@malavika // Did you read the description?
« Made on an iPod Touch!!! » Wow !
G is quite acceptable, good job !
R is too stylised to my taste.
