In order to give my documents, design projects or presentations a boost, I use different fonts. They add great values to the documents. It’s easy to install custom fonts on Mac or Windows PC. But do you know that you can install them equally easily on your iPhone as well?
AnyFont lets you install fonts in TrueTypeFont (.ttf), OpenTypeFont (.otf) or TrueType Collection (.ttc) format on your iPhone. You can use fonts in apps like Microsoft Office or iWork and even design apps. Don’t worry you don’t require to jailbreak your iOS device to install fonts. Let’s head over to find out!
