What can iFont do?
iFont lets you install new fonts for use in apps which support creating content using custom fonts, such as Pages, Keynote or Numbers.
What can't iFont do?
iFont can't change the system font; work with the keyboard; or force apps to let you customise the font. iFont also can't make Comic Sans look good.
“Without iFont, writing my new book, ‘Ten Seconds To Consider’, would be an impossible task, given that I'm designing as I write. For my Pages documents to be consistent between macOS and iOS now is a game changer. Thank you for iFont!” — Daniel Klein, former Apple employee
iFont includes a wide range of features which let you install, compare, and view typefaces, including individual glyphs and technical details. These include:
Install your own fonts (.ttf, .ttc, .otf formats supported, as well as these formats compressed in a .zip) for use in other apps. Simply download a font in a web browser, open in iFont and follow the simple instructions to install it on your device. You can also export a copy of the font, or send the profile to a friend to let them install it, too. iFont can also open archives containing multiple fonts.
iFont lets you download and install a range of fonts from the Google Fonts library, Dafont and more (including custom sources) within the app. It couldn’t be easier to find a suitable typeface for your next leaflet, poster or financial report.
After discovering iFont a couple of years ago it has slotted happily into my professional workflow on the iPad Pro. It has a number of standout features which set it apart from the competition, and has been a great help in my client project work.
There’s also an appreciation of type heritage and design, with biographical information and rich technical detail on hand. Choosing the right type is made easier with the Notepad and Compare features. The ability to install multiple fonts at once is essential, saving time and allowing better management of your font library. Imported fonts are viewed as families allowing you to easily compare different weights and make the right choices. There’s also easy access to online type resources such as Google Fonts, which makes finding and installing them a breeze. Great if you’re in a hurry, or have no access to your own font library. — Martin Cleave, creative professional
Compare many different typefaces to see which will suit your intended use. Arial or Helvetica? Zapfino, Snell Roundhand or Savoye LET? Georgia, Iowan Old Style or Times New Roman? With Compare, you can be the judge!
The Notepad you find under each font lets you test it out and type a message, and then export it as an image to send in apps such as Messages. Add some character to your texts by using a font which stands out from the crowd!
See how a font looks at very small or very large point sizes easily using the Waterfall view. This lets you judge which size would be suitable for your use.
Zoom into a font up to 500%, allowing you to see the minute details in each character.
See information about each font, from the designer and trademark information to the spacing of the ascents and descents.
“Missing fonts on iOS is an issue of the past, thanks to apps like iFont… I hope you saw how easy it is to install fonts on iPhone or iPad and I suggest you give iFont a try.” — Michael Kummer, blogger
NOTE: iFont does not currently support .suit or .dfont files.
iFont is also fully optimised for iPad with a beautiful split view experience and a range of keyboard shortcuts.
Ratings and Reviews
You should definitely read this before downloading!
All right so I downloaded this app because I wanted some cute fonts for my editing for videos this app is actually pretty good here's what I think more so in detail. if you want to use fonts you have to download fonts onto your device and then use iFont to make those files usable, there are some free fonts on there but they're not that good if you're looking for fonts to use I recommend you go on Safari or Google and you use "dafont" or "fontmeme"Cesar bowls some pretty good websites to download them from. nothing I think is not the best is the app is kind of glitchy sometimes so keep that in mind and also it's not the best at being compatible with other apps, there are not really that much apps that you can type in to you kind of just have to copy and paste it which you can also do from the websites sooooo. overall I don't think the app is terrible these are just some things to keep in mind and here are some cute fonts : "CUTE STITCH" "Hellokids" "Joyce" "BabyDoll" "Chicken Pie" (they are Cap and space sensitive)
Help! Wasn’t having freeze-up problems until the latest fix
Now I am, and it hasn’t opened with regularity in a few days. It just freezes at the 100% loading mark and goes no further. I was actually surprised to see the latest update from a week ago saying “hopefully fixes the freezing up problem”, since only now is this happening to mine! (TBH, I think it did happen years ago, too, but stopped doing it so long ago I barely remember it . . . until now). Hope you can fix it, again!?
# Update, 28 October, 2021: the latest fix still had zero effect. I decided to delete and reinstall the app, and now it’s opening, albeit somewhat more slowly than in the past. However, when I say ‘the past’, I mean a long time ago. For the past year/year and a half, it’s opened more slowly than it had previously. But it opens, so I don’t really mind this. :)
I have three or more apps that are supposed to serve the whole “font managing” issue. This single app, however, combines all the useful features from them all, and puts them in one place! For free! You can’t beat that. Even with the ads (& very reasonable price to remove them) they aren’t intrusive popups; just simply a minimal bottom banner. Thank you to the developers for creating this and for distributing it so freely. You have made my font searching & installing process go so smooth/painless.
P.S. I do have one issue; while on the browser tab, to search for fonts, sometimes it will just like, stay stuck on the screen, not allowing you to click anything on the website. (“Download font” button, or links in my case.) it will refresh and the app acts properly, just kind of gets stuck only inside that browser mode. However, with the way you’ve implemented such simplicity and ease of “outside” importing, from safari or whatever else, this really isn’t too big of an issue... 5 stars no doubt! ★★★★★
