Preview your fonts.

Overview

Typeface helps you pick the perfect font from your collection.

Typography can be beautiful and is one of the most important aspects of design. But it is often hard to find the font that conveys just the right emotion, especially if you're not sure what you're looking for. With a minimal interface and total focus on your fonts Typeface tries to make browsing your collection exciting and easy, such that you can find the perfect font for your needs. Enter any text you like to preview and discover all the delicate curves and love typographers have put in their typefaces.

Features:
  • Perfectly rendered previews from installed fonts or fonts in a directory
  • Custom preview text and size that let you view the fonts the way you want
  • Preview and manage all your Font Book collections
  • Put font candidates into a Quick Collection to review them later
  • List and grid overviews
  • Reveal all the little differences with font compare overlays
  • Unicode characters
  • Night mode: no need for wearing your sunglasses at night
  • Letter s p a c i n g
  • Outlined previews
  • Metrics overlay
  • Standard and discretionary ligatures
  • The Magnificent Quick Brown Fox

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.

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.

There is a trial available on the developer's web site. If you've got an issue like that, don't rely solely on the info on MacUpdate.

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!

Why would you need it? You can preview your fonts in Suitcase.

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

This app does more than FontBook and Less than Suitcase and FontExplorer. It looks like a good app at a much more affordable price if you need more than basic font management.
