Great font manager Have been using this for a while now and it completely replaces Suitcase (which I've used since the 90s). It has everything I need and want from a font maanger. It works well and looks beautiful. Thank you 😀
FredBob&Jim
super tool I use it a LOT. for every project a must have
Sanmau79
So impressed with this app I've been using suitcase for years but it wasn't until I tried Typeface did i realise how lacking suitcase is. This app has made looking through my typefaces fun putting them front and center with a priority on typeface tagging and searching amongst other awesome features. Plus you can't argue with the price and finally got me out of subscribing for suitcase.

So much better than Font Book Typeface3 has saved my bacon many times.

A Great App This app gets better with each update.

Amazing App It is simple, lightweight and beautifully designed. A must for typography lovers.

I used Extensis portfolio for many years until they lost the plot, Typeface saved the day many thanks!!!
Sunnyside Studio
Great to use - an effective font Manager Having worked with many type mangagers over many decades I decided to try Typeface 2 (2020) and now Typeface 3 which is as good as those that cost a lot more - and more likely these days force you to subscribe to. Typeface 2 & 3 is simple to use and works fast and so well in my work flow - really appreciate the frequent updates and improvements from the developer. This reinforces the fact that this was a good choice to make.

Love comparing fonts! Typeface is a goldmine! I save so much time seeing all my fonts together and being able to pick the fonts I want to compare with the phrase I need. Recommended for anyone who deals with designing with fonts. Love it!!

Schnell, zuverlässig, keine Gimmicks Seit es Fontmanagementsoftware auf dem Mac gibt verwende ich diese. Eine Weile war mein Favorit Fonts von Bohemian Coding. Super schnell, simpel, eher View als Manage. Die App wurde dann eingestellt und irgendwann kam Typeface auf den Markt. Love at first sight! Schnell, gute Features, genau was mir als Gestalter immer fehlte in den Majorplayern der letzten Jahrzehnte, die immer wirkten wie ein schlecht kaschierter Shop, nicht wie ein Tool. Ich kann Typeface zu 100% empfehlen und bin sehr happy. Und wenn es ein Problem gibt ist der Support super schnell! Tolle App.

fast, efficient, cost effective I used Suitcase Fusion for years, but it became quite expensive. This tool has low CPU requirements and runs well in the background.

time saver so glad to be using Typeface to help me see which fonts to use.

Nothing less than excellent As a long time user of Suitcase I find Typeface 3 to be better looking. less complicated, faster and far less incliued to crash. Its massively cheaper too. if youre looking for a great quality font manager dont hesitate just buy it now. ** update ** Pro version is now available, its reasonably priced and adds valuble features. Really impressed so far

Wunderschönes und praktisches Programm Eine sehr schöne Schriftenverwaltung. Zunächst musste ich mich ein wenig eingewöhnen. Besonders gefallen mir die Vorschaufunktionen und hier insbesondere "Text". Die Aktivierung bei Affinity-Programmen funktioniert wunderbar.

Empfehlenswert Einfache Bedienung, übersichtliches Interface, regelmässige Updates. Hilft sehr bei der Verwaltung einer grossen Anzahl von Schriften.

It Does Its Thing Well I use this app a lot. Pretty much at the begining of most new design projects. It allows me to quickly scroll through my font library and set type or a headline or word or ligature for a project or logo before jumping into a design app to do the actual design. Its simple and doesn't try to do to much which is perfect. Just do your one thing, do it well, and get out of the way. Wish more apps would take that approach.
Supans
Excellent Good application, has given to me all the control about my fonts
AaronParedes
Simple with great funcionality – Love this app For my work absolutely the best app for font managing. Should be used instead of font book
wodie1
Great Program I have enjoyed using this program. It's easy to use - takes a little to get used too but then works great between programs and I have over 5000 fonts - So I only have to turn on the ones I need or want at the time.
Rendidel
Typeface 3 I have been awaiting this new release and very pleased to see it and the new features. Beautifully laid out, easy to navigate and it simply works well. I was going to upgrade to the new Pro version but noticed that this NEW version isn't optimised for Apple Silicon which is a huge shame. Quick email response from the developer to say, "On it" - Excellent. And now available !!
Stenness
excellent :) i like very much this app :)

Muy bueno De fácil uso. La aplicación es amigable e intituiva.
Jugador moderado
Initial Impressions Nice: It acts like a Mac app (not a cross-platform port). Reasonable cost and licensing scheme. It works :-) I'll update with specifics as I dig in.
cincylee
Not the most powerful, but a great balance There are more powerful apps out there, but this great little app does everything I need for a fraction of the price. And any developper that implements an honest and fair upgrade system instead of jumping on the scammy 'app rental' (aka. 'subscription') bandwagon gets an automatic purchase from me. 👍 👍 👍

Лучший Перепробовал множество менеджеров шрифтов, но этот оказался лучшим: удобный, быстрый, красивый, недорогой.
schrodingercat
Better than I expected Having trawled the internet for an alternative non subscription Type Managment option not many had spoke about Typeface that I could find. They all seem to reccommend other way more expensive options. Having been an Extensis, Suticase Fusion user since the very beginning I came to the end of the road when they pulled an Adobe and went subscription based. Just for the price itself, Typeface 3 is worth buying. Add the ability to use this on other machines you own without penalty is a bonus. Having Auto Activation is like the icing on the cake. Being a simple to use, fast and mostly intuative user Interface and the ability to save your collections by use of tags is the cherry on top. Seems to work well with Adobe and Affinity so am very happy with my purchase.
McReady
Merveilleuse mise à jour ! Typeface était déjà de loin ma référence pour la gestion de polices. Cette version 3, outre multitude de nouvelles fonctions, apporte notamment la possibilité de tester les gris typographiques grâce à un générateur de texte mis en forme. Le soucis du détail apporté à tous les niveaux procure un véritable plaisir à l'utilisation de Typeface, surtout avec un trackpad ! Les développeurs de cette qualité manquent à l'App Store…
Tazintosh
Superslick Love the simple interface. Takes a bit to get used to a few things but you'll understand why as you use it over a short time. It's very powerful but the power is well hidden and out of the way.
Halmos
Classy app This is a very classy app. It looks BEAUTIFUL and is very easy to use. After many years of Suitcase Fusion I have NO regrets about switching – this app makes choosing fonts for a project something I really look forward to (it felt like a chore with Suitcase). Customer support (which I needed as I had set something up incorrectly) was great – fast and friendly and solved my issue with the first reply. I wish all my apps were this good.
kenfortune
Great app for viewing fonts in my collection! I love using this app to help me find the right font for whatever project I am working on. I use it in conjunction with Font Book. I always hated the way Font Book displayed my fonts as it made it tedious to find exactly what I needed for a project. But with Typeface 2, I can see more of my fonts displayed at one time, which makes finding that perfect font more streamlined. I still install new fonts via Font Book and Typeface 2 will display that new font in the collection I installed it into. This app is well worth the small investment and I use it daily in my work.
Nagus1964
The best out there I've tried too many font managers (some much more expensive) and none of them match the effortless speed and usability of Typeface. It's just "nice". Whenever a Windows friend doesn't know what I mean by a "nice mac app" I fire up Typeface. There are thoughful touches throughout and I can trust it to just work. In addition, the developer was really helpful sorting out a backup problem I had. Did you know it backs up your tags automatically? This alone saved me hours.
bn86
Vast improvement over free version I just bought this yesterday and I already know that it is far superior to what I tried a few versions ago. The big competitor I had been using was moving to a subscription method which seemed pointless after years of my struggling to get the right fonts open and working. From that other font software I collected all the fonts for outpit and then deleted the app. Right after that I opened Typeface and loaded all my thousands of my fonts. Works like a dream! Thanks!
skepticatlarge
Best in its Class By far the most responsive, fluid, intuitive, beautiful, and useful font manager. In addition, Floor offers oustanding support. Can only recommend!
mlsgvrc
It has one job and does it well I have used MANY different font managers over the course of my career and for the money this one does exactly what I need it to do. Activate and deactivate fonts and don't use a ton of system resources (like font book). Yes it integrates with Adobe apps and just about anything else, at least I have never found it to not work with any application on my laptop. Sure it could have auto activate then again it could have more bells and whistles but really what it does now is perfect.
dano99a
Stable software The software is much more stable than Extensis Suitcase, which I used to use. The UI is a bit mind boggling and is not intuitive at all, which is why I've decided on 3 stars. edit: updating to 4 stars b/c I found preference settings that make the app much more user-friendly. The UI is still unintuitive and does not behave like any other application I have ever used. That being said, the software is solid and I have no regrets switching to this from Suitcase.
helmut
Eat this, Adobe! Wunderschöner, schneller, intuitiver, leistungsstarker Fontmanager. Ganz großartig, unbedingte Empfehlung.
MartinHeise
Simple and easy to use If you like me just want a simple way to keep your fonts organised and don't need all the functions of more advanced managers this is the font manager for you. Also great support with direct email to Floor the creator of the app.
Radiohead75
Designer's Dream I've been a professional Graphic Designer since 1976. (yes I'm old). I've worked with just about every pro type management software availiable through the years. Typeface 2 is the most intuitive, creativity enhancing Type Mananger I've ever worked with. It even has auto activation with Affinity Apps. It handles my 10,000 plus font librairy with ease. A designer's dream. Well done!
Big Old Goofy Designer
Ongoing updates This is finally the best solutuon for fornt management for the mac at the moment. Add this with a dropbox... and you're all set.
rgbjoy
Fast genial Prima Schriftverwaltung! Etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, wenn man z.B. Fontexplorer gewöhnt ist, aber allein die Gechwindigkeit der Darstellung von hunderten von Fonts ist einfach überzeugend. Auch die automatische Aktivierung für Adobe klappt wunderbar. Hier kann man komfortabel durch all seine Font-Ressourcen scrollen, was das Arbeiten erheblich erleichtert. Was ich bisher nicht verstehe ist, wie man mehrere Fonts auf ein Mal aktivieren kann. Ich vermute, dass ich es nur noch nicht entdeckt habe, ansonsten gäbe es einen Stern Abzug. Insgesamt prima Tool, dass sich für den Preis ohne Frage für jeden Designer lohnt. Klare Kaufempfehlung!

実用的進化 フォントの自動アクティベート機能が追加され、使い易い実用的なフォント管理ソフトに進化。 OSX Catalina環境、InDesign2020やIllustrator2020でも問題なく使用フォントの自動アクティベートできてます。

A great alternative to higher price font management software! I have been designing and developing for many years and I have found this application a great option for font management on the Mac. I love its simplicity, reliability, and affordability. The developer did a great job balancing features and price!
Northley
Awesome little font manager This is a great little font manager that provides a great balance of just enough features without being too cumbersome. I do wish the auto tagging feature could auto tag more fonts—only about half of mine got auto tagged. Otherwise this app takes a daunting task of finding the perfect font for a project much easier.
tflight
The Next BIG Level in Font Management Auto activation feature is silent in the background, so you don’t have to waste your time waiting on annoying pop-ups, just let this App do the job for you. Full of UNIQUE, PRACTICAL AND PRODUCTIVE features and EXTREMELY SIMPLE to use. Typeface App is in The Next Big Level Of Font Management.
xpecialist3d
Perfect Font Management Best application I have used for font management in my 20 years experience! Thank you!
Jnash10
Beautiful The best font manager I have used. Powerful tagging and filtering interface. Makes searching for the right typeface a joy.
Cai
Finally, a great font manager! No overkill, simple, well done. There are so many font managers, etc. for PC. Many of them free. But for Macs, we had a choice of expensive, complicated, bloated and total overkill unless you are in media production. I was SO ahppy to find this. It doesn't break the bank, it is clean, simple and does what 95% of users need. It doesnt' take a class to figure out how to use it. Thank you!!
Joe Malzeit
Slick and efficient It’s very efficient and quick to browse through an insane number of fonts with typeface. The tagging system is pretty good, only little tiny issue is I wish it was a little easier to find un-tagged fonts as some can slip throgh the cracks. Selection of candidates into a collection takes a little getting used to but it’s worth it. Highly recommended.
Kent_Sorensen
Better than Font Book and all others Wouldn't it be great to tag your fonts according to style, project you're developing, or any classification and then perform a Boolean search with those tags? Or how about make tag lists of your fonts and select a particular face to be shown in group mode? What about make a PDF book of your font lists to show your colleague or clients? These are only some of the things you can only do with with TypeFace.
Uncleschnell
The Best Font Manager I love this app. By far the best Font Manager available. I love being able to quickly compare fonts, organize them by project with tags, activate/deacivate them, and import all the Google Fonts to work with them in all the Adobe apps seamlessly. The interface is clean and really well organized, which makes a pleasure to work with. No clutter, no confusing structure. And the app dev, Floor, is super responsive and really cares about his customers. He patienly helped me troubleshoot a problem I was having with the app when I migrated to a new iMac. I highly recommend this app!
Pixalstix
Nr.1 Simply the best, and I've really tried many.
Roustaboutpusher
Even the best graphic designers can’t visually remember more than a few dozen fonts in their heads, and without tagging you’re lost in a sea of random or overused picks. With Typeface, we are able to tag our vast font library and run boolean searches - in other words pick out qualities in fonts that we had stored away and would have forgotten. This helps us greatly expand our repertoire.
Alex Barkaloff
I use Typeface app on two Macs and it's a great way to keep my extensive font folder organised. I store all my fonts in an iCloud folder and have that folder synced on both machines. It's a great app to help with choosing a font with the enhanced display/preview options and tagging. Highly recommended at a bargain price.
