Introducing Mobile FontFonts for iOS Apps

FontShop International released 14 font packs tailored specifically for use in iOS apps today, once again leading the way in typographic technology. Available at MobileFontFonts.com, the files are optimized to make the design process for creating beautiful iOS applications as seamless as possible.

Mobile FontFonts are optimized for screen and licensed for use on mobile devices. When designing a native app for a mobile device, like iPhone, Mobile FontFonts allow the designer to specify fonts outside the options that come preinstalled. Mobile FontFonts are presently supported in iOS only.

Introducing Mobile Fonts

Just like webfonts, mobile fonts protect brands and help set apps apart from the crowd. Optimized by hand for the device screen, Mobile FontFonts enhance the user experience. Mobile FontFonts let designers and developers break from the mold of system fonts and give their products some personality. With language support included, Mobile FontFonts allow for consistent, subtle branding to a global audience. 56 mobile fonts from 15 popular families are available in 14 packs with 4 fonts each.

Simple Licensing

Licensing for Mobile FontFonts serves the needs of the iOS developer. A team of up to five developers can share one license for their app portfolio. There’s no time limit on the license, nor annual royalty requirements, just a one-time license fee.

Time is Money

Mobile FontFonts are specifically formatted for embedding into an iOS app. No more hours spent converting fonts! Each is optimized for performance on screen and features developer-friendly licensing and pricing.

Try for Free

For a limited time, FontShop offers a free download of FF Basic Gothic Mobile Pro Black Italic for developers to test in iOS apps.

Although initially available only for use in iOS app development, mobile fonts for additional platforms will be released in the coming months. There are also plans to release additional font families, so designers can use typography to create truly 360-degree brands across desktop, web, and mobile.

Available Mobile Font Packages

Fourteen packages are available, containing four fonts each:

Panelists:

Cary Dunn, CTO, RightSignature. From the temperate and sleepy beachside town of Santa Barbara, Cary is the development and UI steamboat behind the e-signature company RightSignature. He is a crossbreed developer/designer, which means you’ll often find him wireframing in code rather than Photoshop. He lives his life at local coffee shops, spends late nights hacking code, and always has a few new products brewing.

Chris Palmatier is a designer, developer, and artist whose restless muse keeps him bouncing between his text editor, vector drawing software, drafting table, and art studio. Over the past 10 years, he has worked as a full-stack web developer and interaction/visual designer, working to create tools that are both usable and delightful for the University of California, IDEO, and Civic Center/Neighborland.org, to name a few. When not working on Internet design and manufacture, he also works on print design and consulting for clients in the East Bay, designs furniture, and creates abstract paintings and sculptures. Chris holds a BFA in Fine Arts (Painting) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and lives in sunny Oakland, CA.

Gregor Martynus. Having a degree in Media System Design and working for years as developer, designer and in between, Gregor understands the different languages of both sides. Potential gets lost in translation and wrong expectation – let’s talk synergies. Gregor is the founder of minutes.io, an HTML5 app to take & share meeting notes. He enjoys working at coworking spaces and is moving once or twice per year. After San Francisco, he’ll move to Zurich with his wife. Spare time activities include traveling, photography and snowboarding.
