Review by John Hiles

Previous problems seem to be resolved as of this date! Excellent! - Running with Mountain Lion, this is what I found: 1. Your download from the App Store goes to the System's Application folder, named "MacFonts" 2. MacFonts includes a Font Installer Guide (pdf). You'll need to select "Open Package" after selecting "MacFonts" in your Finder. Then you will select in sequence, Contents, Resource, and finally the Font Installer Guide * Applications/MacFonts > Open Package * Contents/Resource/Font Installer Guide.pdf * Using the directions in this Font Installer Guide I did the following: - I started MacFonts (double clicked it in the Finder) - Selected "Save Fonts" to put all the fonts in my Documents folder - Then started the font program, "Font Book" that comes with your Mac system software (you'll find it in the Finder under Applications, too) - And Dragged/Dropped the MacFonts folder from my Documents folder (shown in Finder window) to the Collection column of Font Book. - The 80 or so MacFonts are now part of my workflow. (I checked and found that the advertised fonts were indeed shipped to me as part of the "Essential Fonts" product.) My conclusion: great fonts, great value, solid documentation, truthful advertisement.

Review by Remarc1

how do you use the fonts??? - There are no instructions at all. How do you use the fonts in other programs such as Word, Powerpoint, Pages, Paintbrush, etc…? The fonts dont appear in the font selectors withing the programs and there is no explaination of how to import them. I am also missing a bunch of fonts that were advertised on the app store. I went to the developer site and the site is horrible. Their website looks like it was designed back in the early 1990's. It requires a login and password in order to ask for support, but does not give you the option of setting one up. It asked for my email but then would not let me submit my question. After 15 minutes trying to figure their site out I gave up. Maybe that is by design… I guess I just wasted $6.99.

Perfect for any graphic design project! - I'm an internet marketer and spend a lot of times creating sales pages and capture pages. These fonts are gorgeous and really make my sales pages pop. They have increased conversions and really give my pages a professionally designed image. I also use this for creating flyer and any other design project. I really love the selection and am happy with the purchase

Review by Ferrari Dino

STILL doesnt work…. It had an "unknown error" trying to update… - WEll, I cant figure out how to put the fonts into my computer… I've read the Installer guide and it says to drag the fonts into your Font Book…. That doesnt work. Font will not accept them, either individually or in mass… WASTE OF 6.99… And this is indorsed by MAC ? ? FU
