    You remember the path in the phone to the app? Also, did the ones you add show in the preview?

    Sure, it's private/var/mobile/library/fontswap/packages/system fonts. Mine does not show a preview in the fontswap app. It'll show the name and a little caution triangle beside it. But you can still select and apply it like usual :)

    Just make sure the folder says abcdef.font (.font on end of folder name) so FontSwap will "see" it.

    Problem adding fonts

    So I had no problem creating the folders (and making sure they ended in .font so FontSwap recognized them), but whenever I add a font and try to activate it on my phone, an alert comes up that says: "Selected font package appears to have missing fonts and cannot be installed on the device." No matter what I've done to try and correct this, it keeps giving me that error.

    Any ideas? I'm completely lost.

    I think you have to use font packs that have been "fixed" for the iPhone. I know Xsellize has a whole bunch on their site.
