type special characters without knowing the keyboard combos, explore fonts

PopChar makes "typing" of unusual characters easy without having to remember keyboard combinations. Whenever you need a special character, just lick the "P" in the menu bar to display a table of characters. Select the desired character and it instantly appears in your document. PopChar lets you search for characters by their names, find fonts that contain certain characters, get font info, view font previews, print font sheets, and much more.

Actually, this little App ist just so much more useful than Apples overcomplicated Character Palette. Mind you, the price ist just way too high. I hope, this is going to be fixed, when the Mac App Store arrives.

why the priceeee??

I agree with matt. Also if you don't want to go via the menu's, you can use the standalone KeyViewer app instead. That is also free and does the same thing.

Why is this so expensive? I'm not trying to be a troll, I'm genuinely asking. Is there some additional functionality that I'm not seeing?

I just use the "Character Palette" from System Preferences/International/Input Menu
