BytaFont 3 iOS 9

Here is the full change log for BytaFont 3:

  • Swap Mode for iOS 9
  • New wights supported in Tweak Mode: Semibold, Heavy, and Black
  • Cydget support has been dropped: to customize the Lock screen you may use the Tweak Mode

The Tweak Mode mentioned in the change log is a separate jailbreak tweak that allows you to skin the font on your device without replacing system files. Like BytaFont itself, TweakMode is a free download.

Once you install BytaFont 3, you’ll find a new icon for the app on your Home screen. You can then use the Swap Mode or Tweak Mode tabs to customize the fonts on your device. Cydia contains tons of fonts to choose from to use in concert with BytaFont. In fact, Cydia contains its own font category that you can use to search for fonts under Sources → All Sources..

BytaFont 3 is a 1.6MB download, and can be found free of charge on the BigBoss repo. Do you like to customize fonts on iOS? If so, share your thoughts on BytaFont down in the comments.
