    I have seen several posts regarding this matter, most being over 2 - 3 years old. Now that Xcode and iOS have evolved so much, is it still possible to add a custom font to Xcode so it would be available to use inside any apps I create?

    Yes. What makes you think they removed the option ?

    Interesting, I have researched this like 1.5 hours ago :)
    Prior iOS5 I allways used a library called FontManager.. and it allways worked fine for custom fonts, and have been approved in the appstore etc too.
    Now, this library doesn't work anymore, since I gave ARC a go..
    So I have been researching, I found one, (which is new, so topics about being really old is a lame excuse imho, cuz i found alot).
    There is an entry in your plist called "Add fonts, blala".
    So then you can add your TTF's to your project, and just set the UIFont of a label, to a custom font, and it should work just fine.
