Doesn't work well...
I want to provide balance to some of the negative (out of date) reviews. I've used the current version solidly for two days, and it did crash once. The app is especially suitable for handwriting and casual lettering fonts (you really could convert your handwriting into a font in a minute!), or even a display/novelty font. It is less suitable for someone needing a full featured font editor with multiple weights etc. With patience, someone could create some lovely fonts, though. The custom brushes convert strokes into artistic lines for very nice effects. The ability to convert lines into editable outlines makes this a powerful tool. And fonts can be easily shared, or installed on your iOS device directly, or downloaded to your desktop (PC or Mac). I was able to create a Hebrew alphabet even though the characters are not displayed by default, an easy work around allows you to create custom alphabet sets. And the Hebrew properly goes from right to left.
