As the developers declared recently that BytaFont 2 is available now on Cydia with iOS 7 along with A7 devices support. This is excellent news for all those who really like to modify the User interface of their own iPhone or iPad, as the BytaFont makes it possible for to change the default iOS font with ease.

Allow me to share few of the answers to probably the most FAQ through the BytaFont blog:

– Does BytaFont 2 works with iPhone 5S? Yes, we had positive feedback about that
– Are fonts in “Fonts (BytaFont 2)” section compatible with iOS 7.1? Not yet, we are working on it
– Can I use the fonts in old Cydia “Fonts” section? Nope, they won’t work with BytaFont 2. iOS 7 compatible fonts are only in “Fonts (BytaFont 2)” section
– Dialer is not skinned, why? The dialer cannot be skinned via BytaFont: it is an image
– The lock clock and notes are not available in the advanced tab, why? iOS 7 uses the same font for lock clock, notes and system, so when you change the system font the lock clock and notes change too
– Why does the new Cydia section, Fonts (BytaFont 2), contains few fonts? Porting takes a lot of time, please be patient: we’ll add new fonts almost every day
– After installing BytaFont 2 there is no icon in the springboard, what can I do? Just restart your device
– I get a black screen when I start BytaFont 2 for the first time, what should I do? If your device is quite slow (e.g. iPad 2, iPhone 4) it is normal, just wait some time and let BytaFont finish the back up of your original files
