    The closest I have is Tw Cen MT
    [​IMG]

    The font might be narrowed a bit. In an Apple App: Menu => T => Text => Character -2%

    To me it looks like Century Gothic...I could be wrong though.

    It looks like an extra-light version of Futura. Most of my Futura collection did not survive the transition to OS X, so I can't be more precise than that.

    Futura/Tw Cen MT

    Tw Cen MT could very well be a derivative of Futura, and the font used could be a derivative of Tw Cen Mt.
    The angle of the Tw Cen MT "M" matches the "M" in the photo. The Futura Font "M" is a little wider.
    Both Tw Cen MT and Futura use the squiggly "?"
    Both are heavier fonts than the one used in the photo.
    If there are such things, I would guess it is Tw Cen Narrow, or Tw Cen Light.
    It is probably a further derivative with a new name.

    :eek:

    Not Candera

    Yes, it is a lot like Candera.
    But the lower case g in candera has the two little ovals, and the M is more upright. The R right leg is too curvy.

    Other opinions

    I read this comment on a font site.
    "For iOS 7, Apple made a special modified version of Helvetica Thin/Light."

    That is probably why an exact match can not be found.

    If I want to use a simiilar font I use this one. It is on the web: Champagne & Limousines
    To use it on the iPad you must download an app that will put fonts into the iPad.
