In early 2013 I wanted to make an app. Technically I had already made an app, the 2012 iPhone game TEETHING. However having been made in GameSalad, TEETHING was put together without any coding. This wasn’t going to cut it anymore because a side goal of 2013 was to enter the mysterious world of software development, and that just couldn’t be done without learning how to code.
It is our pleasure to introduce Typendium, an elegant iPhone app about some of the world’s greatest typefaces. You can learn the stories behind Baskerville and Futura for free, but by paying $0.99/£0.69 you will unlock Gill Sans, Palatino and Times New Roman. Paying for Typendium will also give you access to any type stories that we add in the future.
It has been a long road to 1.0. Work originally began in early 2013 as a way for us to learn how to make an app, and we didn’t think it would take more than 6 months of weekends…
