"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 07, 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.

What's new in version 9.0

Version 9.0:
- A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with Mountain Lion, Mavericks and Yosemite.
- A Korean localization has been released.
- Thank you to Kim Colin for his translation from English to Korean.
- The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the Application in particular under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks and 10.10 Yosemite:
Under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks and 10.10 Yosemite, if you're launching the Application for the first time, maybe Mac OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the Application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the Application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developper).
NB: We're not distributing our Applications through the Mac App Store, because Apple's fees policy on the Mac App Store is not financially respectful of developers and small and medium companies.
