iFont lets you install your own fonts for use in apps like Pages or Microsoft Word, lets you find new fonts, compare different fonts, as well as giving you detailed information about each typeface installed on your device. iFont gives you the ability to send messages in different fonts as images from the Notepad, as well as a comprehensive set of tools for professionals.
“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 and view typefaces. 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: Unfortunately iFont is unable to change your system font on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, but it does enable you to use your own fonts in apps such as Pages, Keynote, and the Microsoft Office suite. 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
Worked Perfectly on First Try
I see there are no other reviews and so I was hesitant, but I wanted to add some fonts to my new iPad Pro and took a chance on this one because your Description was pretty straight forward. So glad I did because it was so easy to add a couple of fonts and it worked seamlessly! Make sure you know how to transfer files from a supported cloud service and understand how this works before using this app. I saw a lot of complaints about problems with other apps and some of them maybe didn't really understand what this type of app is actually used for. I'm an artist/designer and use a variety of fonts to create and augment my work. Very happy to pay to support this developer. Thank you!
The only Font App I’ve Ever Used
It’s easy and fast and you have access to literally thousands of fonts at your fingertips to do what you please with! For graphic design and photoshop junkies, this ones for you.
However, for the team, I don’t like that we can only share one specific font at a time to an app, instead of the entire font profile, or even other fonts as well. It does slow down progress by a lot, and I end up not using half of the fonts I’m into simply because of the time it takes to do one. At. A. Time. Not being a complainer, but this is 2019 guys!! You can do more to make this app worth 5 stars instead of 4 😉
Developer Response ,
Hi there – have you tried the ‘Select’ menu in iFont? It lets you select multiple imported fonts, and choose between installing, emailing an installation profile, and exporting copies. Currently it doesn’t support sharing them via the system share menu, but we’ll look into remedying this asap.
If this doesn’t help, it’d be great if you could email us at email@example.com so we can better understand where iFont’s currently falling short.
I downloaded this app on my iPhone 8+ because I am an avid Cricut user and I need to have all the same fonts on are on my MacBook accessible in my iPhone apps, such as Design Space. This app definitely allows that. When a problem arose with one of my fonts unable to install, I emailed customer service and they responded in about a day or two! That’s amazing customer service from an app developer. The app is also SUPER user friendly! I love this app so much and will definitely be bragging about it to all other iPhone and Cricut iPhone users 💜
