Solid Font Creator at a Great Price
Overall, I've found Glyphs Mini 2 to be very powerful and a good price compared to competitors. Some settings and tools aren't intuitive at first but were easily figured out after reading a few tutorials. My one complaint is the description says there's a "Roughen" filter included but that doesn't seem to exist in this Mini version.
Best Font Creation App
Update: The new version 2.0.2 (87) exports fonts correctly again.
This is the best and easiest Font Creation App. The interface is very intuitive, it took me just few days to master all the basics of glyph creation, editing and transformations. I tried some other Font editing software before and while they are good in their own terms, nothing compare to the simplicity of this one. Being simple and easy to use is a huge plus when you deal with thousands of glyphs, plus you can separate your glyphs with colors in the background, kinda of a “tag” system. You can combine filters and colors (tags) to create powerful indexes for fast manipulating through a lot of glyphs. Make no mistake: this app is called Glyphs Mini but you can handle thousands of glyphs in other languages once you master the filters system. Unless you need a very specific feature of the full “Glyphs” app, this app is all you need to create whole and beautiful fonts.
