This is just an attempt to monetize the font market; make no mistake about that. With increasing access to high quality free fonts, fonts.com masqeurades as a service when it is really just a money grab that tries to get you to subscribe or otherwise pay for fonts that most people simply will never need.

It's "SkyFonts" app is atrocious. It does not install fonts for you. It does not really provide any kind of useful service. You are better off saving your fonts on a cloud-storage facility like Dropbox because then they are in an easily accessible place.

The fonts.com website is a UI nightmare. I could barely figure out how to get fonts added to SkyFonts. It's significantly fewer clicks to install a font from Google Fonts than it is via fonts.com/SkyFonts. When you try to quit it attempts to scare you away from exiting with false warnings about lack of access to fonts (you never gave me access to them anyway!) and I feel like I just wasted half an hour of my time for nothing.

Do not install. Do not use. Stay away unless you are in dire need of the commercial fonts it has and you can't get from anywhere else.

I guess there's no need to beat about the bush. SkyFonts seems a a bit useless. I installed it, set up an account on MyFonts and linked it to the app, tried to "Sync Fonts", tried to get it to auto-install fonts from MyFonts like it says it should, but it would do nothing of the sort. The app's main window appears to do absolutely nothing. It's essentially just a graphic. The "Sync Fonts" button gives you no feedback. It's unclear whether it does or has done anything.

Everything else seems to work, e.g. settings menus. The app appears to be stable.

Given that the app doesn't seem to do, anything, but apparently needs to run constantly (on account of its complaints when you try to quit), I couldn't help but wonder if it was actually some sort of malware. A bitcoin miner, perhaps?

In any case, I've uninstalled it.. Give it a miss.

Doesn't support fontspring accounts. But supports Fonts.com, MyFonts or Mosaic accounts and works with Google Fonts.
