Click its icon at the far left of the menu bar (or the far right if you choose – you can also as­sign a hot key) and it dis­plays a list of fonts in­stalled on your sys­tem. Click on a font and it dis­plays all the char­ac­ters avail­able in that font. Click on a char­ac­ter and it’s in­serted into the cur­rently ac­tive doc­u­ment on your Mac. You can also in­sert it as for­mat­ted, rather than plain, text.

Pop Char also dis­plays key­board short­cuts for char­ac­ters, where they are avail­able. It’ll even at­tempt to search for a char­ac­ter whose shape you trace on a track­pad with your finger.
