iOS devices come with a pre-installed set of fonts. It's great, but sometimes you want more. Whether you are working on a special presentation or other document, AnyFont makes it possible to use exactly the fonts you want, whether or not they come pre-installed.
AnyFont allows you to install TrueType Fonts (.ttf), OpenType Fonts (.otf) and TrueType Collections (.ttc) on iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Once installed, these fonts can be used throughout the system in applications such as Pages, Keynote, Word, PowerPoint, Cricut Design, and many others. That's because fonts added with AnyFont are installed as configuration profiles directly in the iOS Settings app.
If you've ever started a presentation on your Mac or PC and then opened it on an iOS device to show off just to find your carefully selected fonts replaced with a different standard, you understand why AnyFont is so powerful. By installing fonts you use on the desktop of your mobile devices with AnyFont, you can confidently showcase your presentations on iOS and know that they will look exactly as you intended. This makes AnyFont the perfect solution for any creative user.
AnyFont is extremely easy to use and comes with a comprehensive FAQ and an introduction guide that goes through the simple steps of installing a font. AnyFont also has:
- The ability to add new single fonts or multiple fonts as a ZIP file using iTunes file sharing or the "Open in …" feature from apps such as Mail, Files or Dropbox
- Font previews [1
- A complete list of installed and available fonts on your device
- 3D Touch
- Locations in English, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese , Russian and Spanish
Don't limit yourself to fonts that come with iOS, visit the AnyFont website to learn more, and download the app to install any font at all on the iPhone or iPad.
