Macworld Awards 4.5 Out of 5 Mice

Jay Nelson’s October review for Macworld awarded 4.5 mice to Insider’s FontAgent 7 and FontAgent Sync. The two products are the latest Mac font management offerings from Insider Software.

All-New FontAgent for Mac

The review‘s high-level summary says, “FontAgent 7 is full of useful new features, including an updated interface, new font previews, and a dramatically improved font identification engine.” Combined with its new import, integrity, history and previewing engines, the V7 release opens a new arena for font management tools serving the creative professional.

Easiest Way to Share and Sync Fonts

FontAgent Sync enables Mac users and workgroups to share and sync fonts through the cloud—no server or admin tools required. The Macworld review recognizes FontAgent Sync as “the easiest way to share fonts among multiple Macs or a workgroup.”

FontAgent Sync works identically in single- and multi-user configurations. The subscription service includes automatic synchronization and backup through the cloud as well as free software upgrades.

Macworld’s Bottom Line

Jay Nelson summarizes his findings after using the new FontAgent:

“Bottom line… FontAgent 7 is the easiest way to share fonts among multiple Macs or a workgroup. Current FontAgent users will appreciate version 7’s greater accuracy in identifying fonts used in documents, Smart Sets that automatically update, and the elimination of Libraries. New users can feel confident that their fonts will import without duplicates, and in the location required by Apple in OS X El Capitan and macOS Sierra.”
