The utility supports converting multiple fonts into a single installable mobileconfig file, which can be used to group font family members together and also cuts down the list of profiles in the iOS device. Pick ‘Multiple Fonts’ and select each typeface file, one at a time.
Type your identifier (one word) and organisation (one or more words).
Select a TrueType or OpenType font.
Generate the .mobileconfig document.
Open the .mobileconfig file in your iOS device to install the font.
System requirements: Mac OS X 10.6 or later, Intel CPU.
TrueType or OpenType fonts required
iOS Font Maker 1.1.1 is 64 bit and Catalina ready
System requirements: Win XP and above
Please observe font licence restrictions. Commercial fonts are unlikely to be licensed for this process, but Google Fonts are all Open Source and can be used with complete freedom.
Tips are used to help offset the cost of my software prototyping and development tools and are greatly appreciated. Many thanks to those who have tipped me!

Mac users may need to open this app the first time by right-clicking/control-clicking and selecting 'Open'. Windows users may see a one-time warning about allowing unauthorised applications to run. In both cases this only happens once.
Every year or so a version of Avast's security software for Windows reports finding a virus inside the software zip archive. This is a known 'false positive' alert. It has been fixed in recent Avast updates, although this could crop up again. To be 100% clear: the virus report by Avast software is a false positive; the zip archive is clean – and it has actually never been near a PC until it is downloaded to one! Updating the Avast virus definitions (and using another anti-virus tool) cures the problem.
This software is free to use, of course, although tips help me pay for my development costs. If you like it please tag me in your Facebook panorama post to show me what you're doing. Bug reports and questions are also welcome. You can find me on Twitter (@thatkeith) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/thatkeithmartin) or see the Contact page for direct contact details.
