Up till now there hasn’t been an easy way to add custom fonts to your iPhone applications. As of iOS 4 it has become very easy to do. Here is what you need to do in order to add custom fonts:
- Add your custom font files into your project using XCode as a resource
- Add a key to your info.plist file called UIAppFonts.
- Make this key an array
- For each font you have, enter the full name of your font file (including the extension) as items to the UIAppFonts array
- Save info.plist
- Now in your application you can simply call [UIFont fontWithName:@”CustomFontName” size:12] to get the custom font to use with your UILabels and UITextViews, etc…
It’s that simple!
