How can you add fonts to your iPad or iPhone?

Using your iPad or iPhone as a design tool is getting more and more popular. Whether you are designing a wedding card, a party invitation, your son’s concert fliers or your new business cards, using a font that catches the eye is really important.

iPads and iPhones have very few and simple system fonts But did you know that you can easily install your own fonts on your iPad/iPhone?

Follow along and we will walk you through the steps in this article.

Download and install font manager.

There are several apps you can use in order to install a font on your Apple device, but for this article we are going to use iFont. This application, and other applications like it, let you install fonts in OTF or TTF format.

The iFont app is available in the iTunes Store for free.

Install it, and then we are ready to go!
