    Anyone know any good fonts that aren't to girly? I want to change it ups little bit on my iPhone, but all the ones I have ran into are either unreadable or girly.

    Fantastic site - I'm using the Lobster font which is the actual font of the iPhone ruler banner. I love it!

    This reminds me - My favorite font was always Neutraface. Whatever happened to it? Is there an equivalent for iOS5?

    As far as I know, it was never officially made for iDevices, but some people on various forums were able to make working versions themselves.

    I believe a free theme came out on Cydia called iMatte (or something similar) which had the folder for Bytafont packed in - it included a fully working Neutraface font for iOS5 IIRC.

    I'm using TF2 Secodary these days but prior to that I was an Ubuntu Titling user forever. But I am really digging the TF2 Secondary.

    Loving these 2 themes. I don't know why I never used Bytafont before.

    Does it slow down the phone or cause any battery drain?

    Nope. It only swaps out the fonts. Once you make the switch, it has the the same effect on the iOS as the stock font would. I've uninstalled it in the past to see and my ram shows no difference with it installed versus stock.

    While some might say NO - I'm in the belief that ANY additional app/tweak slows down your iDevice and might hamper the battery as well. Speaking from personal experience.

    I'm using Philosopher at the moment. It's a very clean looking font.

    3bs, did you ever come around to installing Bytafont? If so, does it affect the battery?

    I did and I can't really say I notice any difference but I haven't like tested it or anything.

    It's free so you might as well give it a go yourself and see how it is. Definitely refreshing having something change system wide like this.

    My font suggestion is Avenir. Though the repo I got it from isn't allowed to be posted here. <_<

    Was it for EPHD? That's how I got it. +1 for this font, it's great.

    Yeah I think so, I know originally it's one of those Adobe paid fonts.

    Saw a screenshot of your font Sharps GF in another thread and I liked it. Gonna give it a try.

    Edit: too hard to read :p
