Type foundries offering iOS embeddable fonts?

Hello everyone - first post here.

I was wondering if anyone had a list of Type foundries offering iOS embeddable fonts?

I design a good amount of apps and want to make sure I'm giving the foundries their credit.

I'd be interested in creating a list here for paid, open source, etc in iOS fonts?


Enjoy non-suicidal letter shape on your mobile / cellphone

Gameloft used a fan copy/mod of existing copyrighted/commercial font in an upcoming game

That's right. Gameloft is using Celestia Medium Redux, a fan modification of copyrighted Generation B. Someone needs to stop them.

It is one of the official fonts of Hasbro's current My Little Pony line up of toys, media franchise and official merchandises. It's also in the subtitle part of the logo of the current generation's well-known cartoon show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Typophile Mobile

Fellow Typophiles,

I've been working on a pet project lately to get a useful mobile experience for Typophile — for those moments when you're on the go and want to get a quick snapshot of what's happening. The design allows you to quickly browse through the latest posts, and jump to the site to get involved if something catches your eye.

It's just a start, but the project has already undergone a number of improvements and revisions, and I'd love to get your thoughts for where you'd like to see it evolve.
