Typeplace allows you to view photographs of stunning typography from all around the world.

Users snap and upload the typography they find, then this piece of type and its location is viewable to the rest of the community. But hey that's not all...

Depending on how many uploads you clock up, you get rewarded with cool stuff such as badges and unique certificates dispensed to leaders each month.

Using the iPhone camera or Photo Library - it’s as simple as snap, label and upload with the choice to post it to your Twitter stream.

With this, the application saves the location of the snap and plots it on a map viewable by everyone, where it can be upvoted.

You can view leaderboards and a map of the World plotting a random selection of Typeplaces and your current location so you can view any in your locale.

Your profile, which is handled by a simple login with your Twitter credentials, holds all your Typeplace related data as well as your ‘Trophy Cabinet” documenting your achievements.

Add friends on Typeplace so you can see what cool Typography they have been finding and what rank they've reached.

Typeplace is aimed at visual creatives with a passion for typography and want to have some fun along the way.

Could be really great but needs alot of work!

The idea behind Tyeplace is one that I like, but there are several things that are preventing me from giving the app a full recommendation for typography fans.

First, the app can be a bit slow. During refreshing times, the app can take a few moments to load data, which locks it up from doing anything else. This can be a bit irksome and a waste of time – if the app should lockup for refreshes, it should be a second or two, almost unnoticeable. However, I found the app to hang for over five seconds at times, even when I’m on my relatively fast WiFi at home.

There are also crash issues. During my testing, I would pick a photo from my Album, and then change my mind and tap the photo to change it. Doing this will bring up the in-app camera, which will then make the app crash. I reproduced this 3 times with the aforementioned steps.

Leaderboard and Popular should be separate. I would have liked to go to Popular and see a nice, big variety of typography like you would get a bunch of photos in something like Instagram. Leaderboard is usually a separate entity from Popular in most other apps I’ve used, so I’d like to see this in Typeplace as well.

Currently, I cannot recommend this app. I love the idea, as well as the design and interface of the app, but there are too many problems to make the Tyeplace experience smooth. However, once the developers can improve the bugs & glitches, have more login options (a solo Typeplace login or Facebook Connect), perhaps separate Popular and Leaderboard, and improve the overall speed of the app, then this would be a must-get.

3/5 stars

very promising

I love the idea, but the app is currently pretty slow and has crashed once in the two minutes I've been using so far. I'm going to give it a chance though, it seems worth it!

2/5 stars


As a type fan this app seems like a good idea. Using it on the other hand is a pain. Crashed consistently when I tried to upload a photo. If the purpose of this app is to upload photos and I can't upload a photo then well it's useless. Guess Ill have to wait for an update until I can get my dollars worth.
