What do you get when you combine the graphic design geekdom of kerning letter pairs with the pacing of Tetris? Answer: The KERN iPhone App by FORMation. Letters must be inserted with pinpoint precision into place within words. A hair too far to the left or right and you’ll loose a life (measured in ligatures). Available from the iTunes Store for 99 cents. The words themselves are graphic design themed. Props for giving tribute to Rudy Vanderlans (of Emigre fame) among others. Video demo after the jump.

    Great write up. The iPhone is truly amazing and I don’t like being without it. This time last year I had jumped in a pool with my iPhone and it was dead. I had to wait 10 days before I was able to get a new one. The phone I had was a cheap go phone. I really love all the games that can be downloaded to the iPhone. The best part about the iPhone to me is the ability to check emails on the go. Thanks for the information.
