What our customers say

    • I used PopChar 15+ years ago on the Mac, but they now also have a Windows version, and it is just so much more powerful and useful than CharMap.

    • PopChar is so much easier to use than Apple's character viewer. It is a 'Mac Essential', the full-featured, well polished, champion of its class.

    • Using a Mac without PopChar is like driving a BMW only in first gear or playing a piano with one hand.

    • It's a must have for anyone who deals with fonts on a daily basis. There are many font utilities out there, but this one is the leader of the pack!

    • I have been using PopChar since it first appeared in 1987. Twenty years and many versions later, I still use it!
