    Two questions:

    I'm looking for handwritten like fonts on cydia. Anybody know of or can recommend any good ones?

    Also, does using fonts slow down your device at all?

    I use Bytafont and don't experience any slowdown whatsoever.

    Currently using Questrial, very sleek.

    I'm on a 5 too.

    I'm pretty sure you'd only see slowdown if you loaded up your phone with a billion different fonts. As it is, all you're going to be doing is using a different font to stock, and probably use the same or 0.0000001% more cpu cycles. Not to be confused with themes which demonstrably cause some degree of slowdown - or so I'm told, not interested in themes, jailbreak is ALL about added functionality and shortcuts for me.

    I do agree with your underlying point though, I don't go crazy with tweaks as I like my phone lean and lightning fast. Fortunately, I'm at the point now where I've got everything I want from jbing and my 5 remains as fast as ever with no perceivable impact on battery life :)

    No slow down here.

    Using a font called 'Klill' with no problems.

    Yea my tweaks are very limited, like 5 so I'm was trying to make sure. You have a point though, one font shouldn't hurt. I went with "aaiight" and so far so good! No lag or anything. Thanks a lot

    I'm at 3 different fonts and run more than 10 tweaks and more than 5 sources at any 1 time. No slowdown on my iPhone 5, but huge drag while starting cydia. (It takes longer for all sources, packages, and updates to process)

    That's my favorite one. Cleanest one I've found so far.

    Check out Folks & Marmelad, both are very nice fonts.
