Does not start on macOS 10.12 (Sierra) - just bounces endlessly in the Dock. :-(

I had high hopes for this, but it doesn't export as TTF so I can't use it.

The system requirements are incorrectly listed. I downloaded version 1.3.7 and it was 64bit intel only. Too bad. The author just lost lost a sale.

Finally, a font editor for the new millennium. The feature-set is already wonderful, and considering that this is still in version 1, the future of the app looks promising. It will certainly have an impact among font designers. However, the market of font foundries and people who make money out of designing type is very, very small. IMHO, either you have to make a VERY high-end tool, and charge thousands, or - if you are going to market for the masses, like this tool is supposed to be - then you have to make it affordable. As several others have already mentioned: a $300 price tag is not affordable for the masses. I also have to agree with a previous comment, that if English is not the developer's first language, then they should hire the services of an expert translator. At $300/pop they should be able to afford it.

Using the trial right now—I think that the interface is amazing, in comparison to other font-editing software. (I still think FontLab is the best when it comes to handling merging contours, but Glyphs is by far the most intuitive for most tasks.) However, as others have mentioned, the price is a sticking point: $300? In 2011? Yes, FontLab and Fontographer are more expensive, but times have changed, and software pricing reflects that. This price would have been considered "cheap" in 1991, but in 2011, it's a bit steep. No, he probably shouldn't charge $2.99, but $100 might be a better price. Another issue is some of the text in the interface and in the help -- it's obvious that the copy is written by non-native speakers of English, and I think that it would do the devs well to get a good copywriter on board at some point to clean up the UI language for the English localisations. Will I buy it? Probably not at this price, but I do respect what the developer is trying to do with Glyphs.

Really appreciate what Georg Seifert and his team are doing here. And i know that competitors are more expensive. But offering this app for $300 is a huge marketing FAIL. The app market and its prices have radically changed in the past three years. Developers can't ignore that. Giving 4/5 stars nevertheless, because its a great app.
