I've started using this instead of Linotype Font Explorer, this is so much quicker, fast responses from the developer, my font library is well over 10,000 fonts, this app is speedy and crash free so far. Looking forward to auto activation for adobe apps next.

This utility seems to be a good solution for the management of its font files and the tool is modern: • The software has the very good idea to leave the folders of the Finder containing the typos files as is, Typeface manages these files without having to duplicate them in a complicated and obscure folder structure (see FontExplorerPro X), • Activation and deactivation are fast and convenient (just one button): under CC 2020 Illustrator, InDesign and PhotoShop, no compatibility issues, • Adding font files to the Finder folders automatically updates the sets created under Typeface, • The general display of the application is very fast, the visualization of the fonts is good / comfortable, the interface is quite pretty, in the canons of macOS, • The utility has the good taste not to be too expensive, • The weight of the application is "light": 46 MB. Now the app's icon is ... "strange"! ...

Maintenant, l'icône de l'application est... “étrange” !...

Tried them all, Lintotype, Suitcase, Font Agent, FontExplorer as well as other newcomers like RightFont. This is the BEST! Fast, reliable and excellent value (my favourite). Joins a new wave of newcomers like Affinity Designer, Affinity Publisher and Affinity Photo that challenge the notion that, to get good apps, you have to own a graphic design studio with a commensurate budget, use pirated software or start the equivalent of a lifetime mortgage for the software you need. I wholly support guys who make excellent products with the average consumer in mind. Ease of use: A Reliability: A Features: A- Speed: A Value: A+

Excellent application, however, I regret the fact that it crashes 3 times out of 5 when I do a font search. Each time I send a report but no response from the publisher.

I gave this a try. It does a good job of displaying fonts. But the developer fell for style over substance. Hence his labels are too small and too gray, lacking contrast and basic usability. Major Fail.

Really really worth trying. Finally A very different approach from all other managers. Damn fast and damn good at evaluating glyphs like no other app. I love it!

P.S.: And no need for no damn suitcase fusion or else. Activate/deactivate each one and collections fast. Try it!

Does anyone know if this Typeface app works with Suitcase Fusion 6??

$10 to preview my fonts (something that Font Book already does)? Hmm. Well, whatever. Good luck.
