4.6 out of 5 - based on 520 reviews
Just what you need Typeface works great and has a super clean interface. Sometimes all you need is a simple tool to get the job done vs. 1000's of menu options. This is it and at a stellar price too!
Simplicity is perfection An app that efficiently manages fonts via an elegant, easy to use interface. Great work and it keeps getting better!
Best Font Manager The best font manager app, should be on windows too...
Intuitive Out of all the font managers through history this is the most elegant.
I <3 Typeface My type manager for years now. I love every feature, beyond the awesome UI. So handy and intuitive. As a senior designer, Typeface is truly what I was looking for. Handles thousands of fonts effortlessly. Font selection tagging by project is metal. Nice pricing. Five star support. Subscribed to Pro this year. I am never lookin back. Thank you.
almost perfect – always nice it´s a pleasure to work with! practical, nice UI, helpful functions all the way. it works very smoothly – which is a new experience for me in terms of external font-managers!… the one thing missing for me: a link between Typeface collections and the systems FontBook collections (which regularly appear for helpful structured access in apps). – … but then Typeface has other ways of making the interaction w/ apps smooth – so this would only be a half star less than five. the overall package certainly is ★★★★★!
I love this font management app This app has made it so much easier to keep track of my fonts and group them using tags.Good job developers!
Lovely I've been using Typeface for a couple years, and I love it. It is beautiful, simple, but makes management of my insane library easy and fun. Thank you team!
Alternativlos Best Fontapp ever :-)
Awesome Love it!!!!
Fast, Foxy, Fabulous Just my goto when I'm browsing fonts. Wonderfull app.
all fonts visible in one place! So nice to be able to compare fonts from so many different sources in one place. It's very helpful for keeping track of licensing as well. Saves so much brain space!
Saved my font life! I had been dithering around after Font Explorer X discontinued its app support, worried about how I was going to manage my 11K fonts. Finally knuckled down and did the research and found Typeface and its good reviews. Installed it and was up and running in five minutes including pointing the app to my font folder and importing all my sets from FEX. Super easy. Interface is very much like Font Explorer X. If you are trying to find a new manager for your fonts I highly recommend Typeface.
Check'em out... then buy it! This has been the best font library app I have found (and have checked out many). What makes it the best:- easy to use- works- developer is engaged and making improvements... and keeps getting better
Best app for font library management hands down! I've tried a dozen or more apps to manage my large library of fonts on my Mac. They all sucked in one way or another. Most were bad because they were so slow to load and render fonts. If you have more than 1000 fonts, half the apps I tried just failed to open and display.This app is fast and slick. The UI is intuitive and easy to use. It's by far the best font app for MacOS I've ever used. I love it.
Feels like a missing part of the OS - Diese App ist ein 'Muss' I've tried many font managers and Typeface 3 is by far the best value for the money. Ich habe schon verschiedenste Font-Manager ausprobiert und Typeface 3 ist mit Abstand die App, die am meisten für's Geld bietet! Mein Preview-Text lautet übrigens: 1’234&567 @Zürcher hätten gerne /- 890 möglichst (grüne?) Xylophone! Fonts mit vollständigem Zeichensatz für die deutsche Sprache sind damit auf einen Blick erkennbar.
Einfach top – funktioniert bestens! Typeface ist mein Ersatz für FontExplorer, der leider nicht mehr unterstütz wird. Mit Typeface kann ich meine Fonts bestens verwalten – bis jetzt hat alles einwandfrei funktioniert. Mir gefällt auch das Appledesign mit klarer Struktur und Bedienung.

Best ever! Nothing compares to you! :-)
El mejor auto-activador de fonts! La aplicación es limpia, elegante y bien diseñada, funciona perfectamente y es muy intuitiva. invisible a la hora de abrir tus documentos y auto-activar los fonts utilizados, deja tus fuentes en donde tú las quieras tener, etc. 10/10PD Gracias por la info que se muestra al instalar las fuentes XD
La mejor sin duda He estado utilizando Font Explorer por años y he cambiado a esta por su simplicidad, y muy intuitiva. Me gustaria que se indicase ademas del numero de typefaces tambien el numero de familias en cada tag y grupos. Gracias por el buen hacer. Saludos

OTTIMO La uso ogni giorno! Consigliatissima.
Buon font manager Con l'aggiornamento di OS che ho dovuto fare, mi son messo alla ricerca di un buon font manager che avesse la possibilità di attivare e disattivare automaticamente i font di cui i miei documenti necessitavano. L'App fa il suo dovere anche se è ovviamente perfezionabile. Fa il suo lavoro.
The Very Best in It’s Class After painstakingly evaluating 7 or 8 font management apps, it was crystal clear to me that Typeface was, hands down, the best software for the task at hand—namely managing a massive library of type with speed, efficiency, flexibility and a visually beautiful, intuitive user interface.Typeface imports fonts faster than any other font management software I’ve ever seen, and the categorization is precise. The tag system accommodates anything you throw at it and I’ve never seen such flexibility in customizing previews. This makes the hunt to find the right font for the circumstances painless and fast.In addition, Floor, the developer, is very hands-on. He responds almost instantaneously to questions and makes troubleshooting a breeze. He’s personable, patient and thorough.There’s no better choice for font management and that’s the truth,

Fantastic! Replacing FontExplorer Pro right now. This app is first of all FAST! It displays fonts on my M1 without a lag or glitch. It has the ability to import my FontExplorer sets which is a huge plus. I spent a lot of time putting the sets together.Autoactivation seems to work better than FEP. In Affinity Publisher there is a slight delay and then the font appears. With FEP it was hit or miss, mostly miss with autoactivation. It is missing font pairings and similar font features like some apps have but I did not rely on those much anyway. I highly appreciate the lack of subscription and a year's worth of updates is more than fair.Features, speed, interface and lack of subscription make it 5 stars in my book.
Abundant Grace
Great replacement for FontExplorer X Pro When FontExplorer X Pro was announced to have been abandoned (i.e. development and support) I resisted and continued to use it. But now that it no longer works on Ventura I had to find an alternative.I evaluated RightFont, FontBase and Typeface extensively.For me, I found Typeface to be the best of the three — both in terms of workflow and the upgrade path going forward. The Typeface being on the App Store was also a big plus for me — I prefer my licenses and upgrades to be stored with and to be done via Apple; a centralized place that is hassle free.
Nice Fox Great app. Not perfect, but it gets the job done pretty well. Really like the GUI. Support is also top notch! Good job!
Suprisingly Pleased I needed a lightweight and functional replacement for font managment for my graphic design. So fat so good with Typeface 3. Keep up the good work!
Super! Sehr übersictlich, tolle Such und Sortiert-Funktionen!
The Best I have stepped away from the big and sluggish fontmanaging fossiles and have embraces Typeface as my new font managing darling
best type-manager so far ... I really mean it! And I tried a lot over the years.
No need for Suitcase anymore Great alternative!
Fuzz three
Easy & Quick Works just as it should - and handles a TON of fonts. Great interface.
Graphic Design Without Typeface, no graphic designer should be without this app when creating beautiful substancial works of design. The way the app organizes the fonts, allows sampling with flexible text and lettering. Previews are amazing for someone visually inclined. If you don't have this app as a creator of graphics, get it right now! You'll love it.
Simplicity is perfection An app that efficiently manages fonts via an elegant, easy to use interface. Great work and it keeps getting better!
Font Management Made Easy Simple clean interface that lets you effortlessly focus on the task of using fonts in projects. Type in demo text to see results in Typeface before applying then in your project. Google fonts import effortlessly and can be activated on startup.A must have for designers and developers.
Completely happy with app and support I've been using Typeface for over 3 years and am glad i chose this font manager over others. It simply does what it was intended to do without any fuss...faultlessly. And just as importantly, the after-sales support is super quick and helpful. Thank you Floor for creating this app.
Just what I need, GREAT SUPPPORT! I've worked in graphic arts for 40 years thru a variety of technology, using Mac for 35 years. This app fits my needs with Creative Cloud programs. But what makes me write this is the excellent technical support when I have submitted questions. Rare to get the timely and truly helpful/understandable replies!

Intuitive and it just works I'm blown away by how easy the makes handling my font collection and how seamlessly it works with my apps - both Adobe and Affinity. Well worth the price.
Oscar Fellini
Amazing! Great app, really worth the money. Fits great into MacOS and it's amazing that you can turn fonts on and off. I also really like that I can search for fonts for a specific project I'm working on and then compare them.
