Several months ago, we showed you how you can change the iPhone’s system font using FontSwap. BytaFont, which is a free app available on Cydia, provides an alternative way to customize the system font and it offers even more font choices to choose from.
BytaFont lets you change fonts on any iOS devices including iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 4.0 (or up).
To use BytaFont, you need to have a jailbroken iPhone. If you already have one, simply launch cydia, search for “BytaFont” and install it. The app is just a font selection font. It doesn’t come with any fonts (except the original system font of iPhone). You need to go to the “Font” section on Cydia and download the fonts.
Once you’ve downloaded the font, go back to the home screen and launch BytaFont. The interface of the app is extremely simple. It just displays the available fonts for you to choose from. Tap on any of the fonts (say, HandofSean) and confirm the change. BytaFont will automatically respring your iPhone and apply the selected font as you can see from the below screenshots.
The change is system-wide. That means, the font change applies to all iPhone apps including Notes, SMS, Calendar, etc. It also changes the font on home screen, as well as, lock screen.
