iOS Font Maker 1.1.1

iOS Font Maker is a utility for Mac OS X and Windows that converts TrueType and OpenType fonts into a format that can be installed in iOS devices and used in any app that allows fonts selection. Use custom typefaces in Keynote presentations and Pages layouts.

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.

How to use iOS Font Maker:

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.

iOS Font Maker is free, but if you like it feel free to throw a bit in the tip jar (PayPal link below).

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!

First-time launch

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.

Virus warning from Avast anti-virus software?

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.

Tips? Only if you want to

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 ( or see the Contact page for direct contact details.
