Just tried it out (I was a bad, bad, beta tester – never even opened the thing) and it worked pretty flawlessly. Now if most of my font library wasn’t exclusively PostScript…

Handy tool but I’m a little confused. The font license still needs to allow for embedding so any fonts I convert must meet that criteria (assuming I do in fact embed them). And if that’s the case those fonts would most likely already be listed on Font Squirrel etc., yes? So isn’t this app a bit redundant? Or am I missing the obvious?

That’s a good point. There are fonts you can buy which include Web licensing. While they might also include some of the varieties of font-packaging technology that FontPrep uses, I would hazard a guess that they may not include all of them. And you’d still need to know how to write the fallbacks, in the proper order, to ensure that the widest range of non-standard browsers still had a shot at seeing what you designed. The benefit to this application seems to be the preview and browsing mode, as well as the one-step packaging.
