      Yes! Let us all rush to judgement because otherwise we might know what is going on.

    H&Co? I dunno, I think I'm always going to refer to them as H&FJ.

    We’ve changed our licenses to make life a little easier for app developers.

    I thought this might have signaled the end of the trend of 10x mobile font licensing pricing. It looks like this is not the case though.

      It doesn't seem like a very meaningful change to their licensing at all, really… "Pay for the fonts slightly later".

    Can't help but perceive Hoefler as a total dick now...

    "App Licenses are needed only when publishing an app"

    is that native apps or web?

    It's really a shame the way they handle licensing. I think the way Sketch, Apple, etc did it with lower price and more volume is killer.

    It's not like the fonts are less sexy when you see them more often, quite the opposite IMO. The more I see them, the more I enjoy them.

    These guys run it like old-school Adobe super expensive.

    So, it would still require two licenses to create an app. One for designing and another for publishing. Not really that big of a change..
