iFont lets you install your own custom fonts for use in apps such as Pages or Microsoft Word, lets you compare different fonts and different weights, 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, .otf, and .ttc formats supported) 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 within the app. It couldn’t be easier to find a suitable typeface for your next leaflet, poster or financial report.
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.
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

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!
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 💜
How often do you get multiple support responses on a weekend? This app is easy to use. I use my iPad to create materials for my classes, but have always had to open the documents on my Mac to make final adjustments with the fonts I need. No longer. The fonts are now on my iPad. One font I was trying to use was ancient (system 8 or 9). Although iFont doesn’t support files that old, they did research for me and sent me directions to update the font. I appreciate their effort and work ethic.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
