    "Amazing and easy to view and find exactly what I need! Thank You!"

    June 23, 2008  |   By alamoeba1

    Version: Font Viewer 4.7

    Pros

    The preview as I scroll over the typestyle, the quick and short immediate view of the typestyle, the ability to sort in so many useful ways and the ease of importing fonts and using the program.

    "Useless"

    April 12, 2006  |   By CreoleB

    Version: Font Viewer 4.7

    Cons

    Whatever file it downloads to isn't compatible with Windows. I can't even open it. You have to search to find a program to open it. What a waste.

    "It's free and it works"

    April 7, 2006  |   By robpruitt

    Version: Font Viewer 4.7

    Pros

    It's a great way to quickly see your fonts and being genuinely free there are no nag or upgrade screens.

    Cons

    It doesn't do much besides show your fonts but I expected that.

    "The user is not able to set different options on print styles."

    September 12, 2004  |  

    Version: Font Viewer 4.7

    Summary

    One of the predecessers of this peice of software is the Typebook which unfortunately I have not found for Mac OSX. It allows the user different options for printing the active fonts. With this feature you can easily create printed font catalogs.

    "Not Worth The Cost"

    May 22, 2003  |   By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

    Version: Font Viewer 4.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I don't know about you, but paying $10 for this isn't the best thing to do...it only has one main feature, and it doesn't show fonts in a variety of ways. There are many other font viewers out there which actually do more. For example, X Font Info is free and views uninstalled fonts. Font Showcase is a little buggy, but it still does more than this, and it costs $15 (I think). And lastly, my own FontViewer (there's no copyright issues here, just to get that straight). My FontViewer costs the same price and has 6 more main features. Compared to it, this program only has the "Font List". I will say (since I'm a fair reviewer) that the documentation, stability, and ease of use is pretty outstanding, but besides that, it won't do a lot for you.
