"Font Book for iPad is a nice and simple way to preview fonts on your new toy" — @viticci (Editor of MacStories.net)"A great app to see what your creative headlines or body copy will look like in different fonts." —…..
Rated 3/5 based on 2 customer reviews.
Wonderful app! Wanted it for the custom font previews, and it DOES render them wonderfully. Wish you could put your custom fonts into some sort of folder or tag arrangement - maybe in a future release.
In a nutshell: it turns out that something was boogered-up with MY side of things, and I've deleted my previous review.
Great app if you want to LOOK at a font. Bad app if want to USE a font.
Bought the app understanding that I could use iTunes File Sharing to move fonts from my MBP to my iPad. I thought this meant the font would be available to any app I opened it into (Pages). I was able to move fonts from my MBP to the Font Book app through iTunes File Sharing but that is where they stay. You can really only look at the font or preview some text that you must enter into their viewer window.
I read the description several times and just never linked up the phrase "into app (not system)" with only the Font Book app. For some reason I understood it to mean any individual app, not system.
