Font Box is the perfect tool for app developers and interface designers to find the right fonts and make sure that they are available in all targeted iOS versions.

It shows previews and further informations for all fonts shipped with iOS - for the currently running version as well as for previous versions (starting with iPhone OS 2.1). Font Box also shows detailed informations about the font metrics as well as their availability in pevious versions of iOS.

You can choose between numerous different sample texts and pangrams or add your own to check the availability of special characters used in different languages, for example german umlauts or french diacritics.

A general survey of all fonts shipped since iPhoneOS 2.1 including their availability in various other iOS versions is also available. This makes FontBox a great help for searching suitable fonts when developing new iOS apps.
