Download All Google Fonts into Your Desktop with Skyfonts
If you are like me and other developers whom constantly used Google fonts for web design and web development then here’s a good news for you.
Leading font company, Fonts.com had announce that they had teamed up with Google to offer desktop versions of their popular Google Fonts free of charge. Offered for use in print, these fonts are delivered using SkyFont‘s patent-pending font delivery technology and can be used anywhere.
Each time a font is updated — such as when new characters are added — SkyFonts will automatically update the font on your device. Syncing Google Fonts with SkyFonts will also improve your web browsing experience, by cutting the time spent downloading fonts.
Is SKyFonts Good or Bad?
At first look, SkyFonts look promising, with ability of lightweight utility in the background of your Mac or PC, when a font is installed through SkyFonts it becomes available to all of your applications just like a typical desktop font. When the time period is up, SkyFonts removes the font from your system.
According to statement from SkyFonts,
SkyFonts is free to use, and no account signup is required. In addition, Google will push updates to the font data through SkyFonts, which automatically update the fonts on your machine. In addition, you can choose the fonts you want to install and sync rather than installing the entire library of 600+ fonts
With the Google fonts be able to download for free, using this free sync tool to download and sync all 600+ Google fonts might seem worthless but it will save you tons of time in development along the way.
Alternately you can try using Github or Web font plugin for Photoshop to achieve somewhat similar result.
