The developer's website is now dead. Too bad; this was a nice application.

This is an astonishingly useful app for anyone who regularly works with fonts and typography in design, documentation, multi-lingual publishing, etc. The glyph and character info it provides is exceptionally helpful and well-thought out. I especially like the ability to copy a glyph's outline data to the clipboard and paste it into Illustrator, Photoshop, etc. (and of course, it's great for inserting characters into text as well). Viewing copied text on the clipboard in various fonts is another cool feature.

I'm not sure yet about how much I like automatically loading the app into the menu bar (when you quit, it's unloaded), but other than that, this is a perfect utility for me.

This is actually a pretty useful application. I use it mainly to find the key combinations required for selecting various characters. There is nothing in OS X that lets you browse a font's complete character map and tell you what the key combinations are.

No updates since 2007 though so maybe the developer should drop the price a bit to encourage more buyers...
