    Just thought I would give people a heads up as I have been waiting for a FontSwap update/replacement.

    I never used FontSwap. Does this come with a complete set of fonts or is that additional purchases?

    Great app, works really well, thanks dude. For those wondering, yes you can use your own fonts, just go to /var/mobile/Library/MyFonts and make a Fontname.font directory (kind of like ThemeName.theme for winterboard) and then put in the ios ported fonts that you have. I used neutraface for instance, and put Helvetica and LockClock in there, selected the font in BytaFont and it worked perfectly.

    May be a dumb question. But how do you get this to work? I downloaded a font burning unsure how to work them. Thanks

    Bytafont must be downloaded via Cydia. An app icon will appear and when opened will list the font(s) you have also downloaded from Cydia (that are compatible with Bytafont).

    I don't know. When I downloaded a Droid font it also downloaded iFiles (?)
