Add Fonts to Your iPad/iPhone for Word/Pages/Keynote/Excel/Powerpoint and more!

How to Add Fonts to iPhone or iPad

I get asked on a daily basis about this and I was always under the understanding that Apple doesn’t allow for third party fonts to be installed directly into the iOS system.

This is still true, but there is now a way you can add fonts to your device– they won’t be system fonts used for things like Messaging and Facebook.  However, you CAN use them in Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Keynote, Pages, and more! :)

It does require purchasing a $1.99 app >>here<<.  The AnyFont app (I’m NOT affiliated in any way, shape, or form with this app!) allows you to take your fonts, install them, and use them in the above listed programs.  They may work in other programs, but I’m honestly not 100% sure which ones.

Here’s a step by step guide on how to use the AnyFont app.

STEP ONE: Download the AnyFont app.

STEP TWO: Open up your Dropbox folder that contains the fonts you wish to use.  If you don’t already use Dropbox, see my Phonto tutorial which explains some of that.

STEP THREE: Tap on the file you wish to install.  I decided to just use my entire all KG Fonts download from here.  When you tap on the zip file in Dropbox, it will look like this- no preview available.

STEP FOUR:  Tap in the bottom left corner, the box with the arrow coming out the top.  This gives you options of where to open up the zip file.  Select “open in…”

STEP FIVE: After tapping “Open in…” you will get options.  Tap “Open in AnyFont.”

STEP SIX: AnyFont will unzip the folder and show you a list of the contents.  Mine looks like this.  Scroll through and select a font to install.

STEP SEVEN: Tap on the font you wish to install.  I opted for KG Second Chances Solid.  After tapping on it, you can opt to preview the font if you like before installing.  To install, just tap the icon in the center.

STEP EIGHT: On the warning page, click “install”.  Obviously, you install fonts at your own risk, blah blah blah.

STEP NINE: Open your program of choice.  My example shows the font in Pages.  In Pages, click the paintbrush before beginning to type (or after selecting text) and then select the desired font by clicking on the current font (11 pt Helvetica in this case) and selecting a new font from the list.  Close out of that and start typing!  It’s pretty simple!

If your font doesn’t show up, you might need to close and reopen the program.  It won’t work in every program, but I know Pages, Word, Powerpoint, Excel, and Keynote should work!

  

 

As always with my tutorials, I can’t provide support if these things don’t work for you!  But I hope this is helpful in some small way!

New: KG Shake it Off

Several months ago, my 10-year-old daughter, Kate, asked if she could make a specific style of font with me.  She drew everything out for me on paper.  She’s been waiting as patiently as possible for a 10-year-old and I’m happy to say it is finally finished.
