    Hi,

    I am someone who works a lot with fonts and I have several which I would love to tranfer to the iPad as well. Does anyone know how it can be done?

    Does the Font Book app allow one to tranfer any font one wants to the iPad? If not, is there an alternative?

    Thanks!

    I'm going to bump this to the top because I'd like to know as well. I know you can download a lot of different fonts from Cydia if you're jail broken. But it sure would be nice to be able to install any compatible font you wanted through iFile (or whichever program you use for it).

    Do these apps allow you to transfer any font you like to the iPad or do they come with some preinstalled fonts?

    You'll have to try them yourself. Read the descriptions in the app store.
    At 1 or2$ they're pretty cheap...

    After some research I have found a method to manually add any font you want to the iPad. I am, however, unsure if one is allowed to post something here from another blog.

    Update: I've tried this manual method, and it pretty much worked like a charm! I have added a few new fonts to my iPad using it.

    Yeah I'm thinking this is fine to share so long as it's not stealing anything.

    The preferable way would be to copy the procedure and paste it here.
