Review by BanzaiGemini

You need to read this! - Okay, this worked for me. Rate this so people can see it! I have repeatedly encountered the whole, Failed to open…(null) problem. Here is a simple solution: 1. Open Finder 2. Click on the Applications Tab on the left of the window 3. Search for the MacFonts Application 4. DO NOT OPEN IT! Right-click and scroll down to the "Show Package Contents" option 5. Open the Folders in this order: Contents>Resources>Fonts 6. Copy and Paste everything in the folder onto your desktop. Congrats!! You now have access to the previously inaccessible fonts!! Once again, rate the comment in order for people to see this! Hope this helps, and have a nice day! :D

No Free App Here! Only Wasted Time - Following the insturctions, this does not work. Please stop wating my time with worthless apps. I would rather pay a few dollars than waste my time. I see other reviews share my feelings.

Installer does not work. (MacBP17"@Lion) - Installer does not work. Appears to be a useless product. My MBPro17" @ Lion works fine. No luck with this item

OK set. All from the 2000 MacFonts set. - If you have the MacFonts 2000 Fonts Collection, you already have all of these fonts, no need for duplication. This is an OK collection. About 25% is great, another 25% reasonable, the last half being gaudy/specialty fonts. It doesn't come with a preview application. You're instructed to use Apple's Font Book instead.

Review by UnsatisfiedTimewastee

I’m getting NO new fonts... - I installed this app and did everything the instructions told me to do, but when I created a new section in Font Book adn opened Pages-nothing. I tried downloading the fonts again, but that just doubled the folder size and took up more space on my computer. Zero extra fonts. I spent 15 minutes twidling around on my computer with no good results. This has been a big waste of my time. just because it’s free, that doesnt mean it works and is easy to use. I shouldn’t need to ask, but am I doing somthing wrong? I’m very unsatisfied.
