Looks good and behaves well. Does not need installation. The executable is ready to go. You drag your folder of fonts into the window in the left column, you push the tiny button after it turns to green all your beloved fonts are available to you into programs without needing to burden the fonts directory of your OS, in my case Windows.

Expensive price to pay for a license the user has already paid for. Aside from being a standalone Digital Asset Management (DAM) tool focused on fonts, it's highly used purely as plugins for Adobe products (which are similarly also well known for high cost licensing & upgrades) . See More
Cash grabbing upgrades makes me cringe at the prospect of having to buy a new license for a new version EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. and or every time adobe releases a new version. Not only is it ridiculous, it's greedy, it's sneaky, it's manipulative, and it's got me scouring for alternatives. Version 7 had a great interface, complete with an 'explorer' view that allowed you to shuffle and sort fonts by a variety of methods. Version 8 came about as CC 2018 was released. Close to a year after version 7. The upgrade licence was like $60. More than most font programs cost outright. The single solitary reason I upgraded - so my auto-activation in CC 2018 keeps working. Not a single other valuable reason. It had an overhaul to the SF UI, doing away with the sort / explorer window completely, even at huge protest from customers who had grown to rely on it. This is even after they did a product testing and analysis with users. They blatantly ignored the community. Version 9 drops, again in tandem with CC 2019, and voila, the same story, 1 year later. Pay up $60 so I can auto-activate. What a load of sht. This time around, the new features include document tracking. Woop-de-who-the-f** cares about document tracking? I bought this for font navigation! More cash grab from a sleezy company. So sick of this. See More
