iFont lets you install new fonts for use in apps such as Pages, Keynote or Numbers which support font customisation. Plus, you can share text in different fonts as images using the Notepad feature – perfect for adding personality to your messages in WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.
What can't iFont do?
What iFont can't do is change the font used in the keyboard, or in other apps that don't support font customisation. iFont also can't make Comic Sans look good.
How do you make money from iFont?
By default, iFont includes adverts. An in-app purchase is available to remove these adverts, and unlock a number of premium features.
“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.

Not fixed in 7.3.2: other developers failing to update their apps for iOS 14.
If an app has lost access to your fonts after you upgraded to iOS 14, it's because the app's developers have failed to update their app for iOS 14. We've been contacting effected developers to draw their attention to this as it's not something we can fix with an update to iFont.
Also, the font picker (as used in Compare view) now has an alphabetical scrubber at the side.
iFont is fully compatible with iOS 14 - but many apps you'd normally use with custom fonts are not yet. We suggest contacting other developers to encourage them to release updates. In the mean time, you may want to try apps such as Pages and GoodNotes which already support custom fonts on iOS 14.
