Fontcase 1.0 offers iTunes-like font sharing

updated 11:05 am EST, Fri January 23, 2009

Fontcase 1.0 launched

Bohemian Coding has published the first version of Fontcase, a new font management utility. The app stores collected fonts in a central location on a Mac, which can then be uploaded to other Macs through an iTunes-like sharing mechanism, operating via Bonjour. An emphasis of the software is said to be on metadata, which can be used to assign tags, genres, designers and foundries to fonts.

The metadata is used to generate smart collections, and associations can be formed by dragging items like fonts to tags, or designer names to foundries. Font preview uses custom sample text, and csupports glyph, waterfall and body views; users can additionally compare multiple fonts side-by-side, and import FontExplorer X material. Fontcase runs on Mac OS X 10.5 or later, and will typically cost $55. For the next two weeks though, Bohemian is offering a $10 discount.
