How to add fonts to apps on iOS

One of my bug bears is the limitation of fonts on my iPad. I mentioned in my post yesterday about wall displays that using fonts to add to your repertoire of title fonts for your displays can really make them sing. My favourite site for finding fonts is ‘Da Font and there are lots there that are freely available such as these top downloads here.

Having consistent fonts across your devices is really important when it comes to your workflow (and sanity) when working across multiple devices.

There are a number of different ways you can add fonts to your iPad. The first one is pretty technical which involves creating a configuration profile using a Mac which embeds the fonts within it. You then add the configuration profile to your iPad and #boom – the fonts are on your iPad. There are even more technical ways by using a script (download here) using Python in Pythonista (£4.99), but for most people, both of these methods are time consuming and outside of the technical reaches of your average classroom teacher.
