Two new and GREAT font apps for Mac...on App Store and cheap too!

"John Turner the Bear😎"
Good Morning People!
 
I have discovered two fabulous Font managment apps for your Mac, One just released yesterday and both under 10$. The combo of the two of them do virtually anything the Suitcase or FontExporer X Pro do and I think at least as well and in some cases better! The only major change I would ask for are plugins and I have reason to believe they may be in the offing. The apps are Ultra Character Map and Font File Browser.
 
Ultra Character Map will show every font and will group them according to almost fashion you could ask for. It will let you goup Favorites etc. Font File Browser lets you look at font files even if they are not installed. A typical example is when you purchase a font collection or a font CD and need to go through all the fonts and pick one for a project, Font File Browser saves you a significant amount of time and give you a complete view of your font files' contents to help make your decision.

You can also look at installed font files. You'll find them here:

System/Library/Fonts: required system fonts
Library/Fonts: fonts installed for all users of your Mac
Home/Library/Fonts: fonts installed for your user only
 
Finally let me say, there support people are fast to respond and really knowledgeable.

I took a quick look at both apps. It looks like Ultra Character Map has a lot more features than Font File Browser and a good alternative to PopChar.
