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:
