Once upon a time this was a useful tool. But as others have noted here, the price keeps going up and now they demand the major version upgrade fee all over again just to move from 4.1 to 4.2. It's time to ditch this.

Excellent app, which is unfortunately let down by poor resolution previews. The users guide has this to say: "Previews generated by TypeBook are low-resolution. To see a high-resolution preview, select any of the Print methods and click on the Preview button to open and view the page(s) in Apple's Preview App." That's a tedious workaround, and IMO is a cop-out. High-quality previews should be provided within the app,a nd would greatly speed up the process of viewing and comparing fonts. I hope the developer adds this as an option in future versions.

Macworld just gave this font manager 5-out-of-5 mice. Quite a rarity.

It's worth reading. Especially since there are some things this font manager that NO other font manager at any price can do that will make your life as a designer much easier.

How do I know? I'm a designer (re. my profile if you need proof)

This product does provide some of the most useful and attractive font specimens I've encountered, but I'd like to see more customization options (even though they've added "several new" options, it's still very minimal in this regard). Performance is quite good.

The price, by the way, is $39.99 not $29.95.

BTW: the price went up again: it's now 49.95. Value Added Tax? Inflation? The Crisis?


It's gone up even more now to $79.95 retail. At the end of Nov 2010 there was a 40% deal which brought the price down to $29.95.

I think they have just priced themselves out of the market.

Is this the result of having an app on the AppStore?
