Looks neat, but the UI has some usability issues.

However, the deal-breaker for me is that it doesn't allow you to add folders on a network drive. :(

Other than that, it looks like it could be good. If they ever support network folders, I'll give it another try.

Does not have tag, cannot find folder inside folder, or duplicate fonts. It not a pro tool.

The latest version can find a folder inside a folder.

After using NexusFont for a few years, I've had to start looking for alternatives that can handle my unhealthy, ever-growing TLC's 'hoarders'- worthy collection of fonts. NexusFont will just grind to a halt occasionally, even with the collection being organized into several top-level and even more sub-level folders.
I lasted about 20 minutes with FontBase before uninstalling it, with about 10 minutes of that time spent trying to find the window once open. It is yet another app that someone seems to have only tested on a 4K 30" screen, as the window was too large to fit on my laptop's screen while set to either 125/150% scaling. The minimum size coded into the app almost ended up filling my attached 1080 display set to 100% scaling.
DPI scaling support amongst apps is already a can of worms, but it's typically with legacy WFP-based or or older apps, so I was surprised when this UWP app was designed so poorly. To add insult to injury, there's so much empty real-estate in the UI that things started to make less sense. At that point I didn't bother setting custom DPI-scaling in the compatibility settings for it, especially after determining it was extremely lean on features (such as the tagging available in NexusFont, which was a must-have for me).
Definitely not the app for me, and my horde of fonts, but it may be enough for others' purposes.

Great UI and really easy to use. Really wish it has Font synchronization between different computers though

The only good looking font management app for Windows, and trust me, I was looking for alternatives. On Mac it is a great alternative to super expensive stuff like Suitcase or Font Explorer. FontBase works really as fast as promised, and probably even faster. On the negative side I had some problems when adding font folders, but only the first time.

Doesn't show installed fonts?

Cool interface, but can only browse fonts in online repositories, like Google Fonts... a bit useless for my purposes
