    Hello there,
    I read the sticky topic but I didn't find answers to my question: how do I add custom fonts to FontSwap?

    How?
    If I, for example, have a font I like named "abc123.tff", I don't think I would find it on Cydia. I was wondering where to SSH it.

    Yes, but it needs to be ported to be iPhone compatible.

    Be sure that it's been ported, or you'll be stuck with a Spinning Wheel of Death.

    Which happened to me 4 times before I realized it was the font that was causing the trouble. Oh well, we all learn from our mistakes. :/

    @Kayzo: Yeah.


    If you need a font ported, ANYONE, I can port it in about 10-15 minutes.

    iZ3RO,

    I would like to have this Christopher Hand font to use in FontSwap elsewhere on my Touch to go nicely with the Polaroid theme.

    The website page shows it is allowed to have it.

    Does it have to be .ttf? or different?
