How to find the font on any webpage on your iPhone or iPad

Ever find yourself admiring a font on a web page, and want to find out what’s the name of the font? The developer of WhatFont,  the popular browser extensions, recently released a new iOS 8 Safari extension that let’s you do just that.

So here’s what you need to do:

  • Open a web page and select the text whose font you want to identify.

If you know HTML, then you could also use the View Source App Extension to check the source code of the webpage to find the font that has been used on the webpage yourself.
