Phonto: a tutorial {PC/Windows Version}

**NOTE:I had a little issue with this today. If you install more than 30 fonts (yes, I have 100's to choose from), it may cause the app to crash. I had a chat with the developer and this was his advice. Keep it under 30, people, or you might run into some issues! Good luck!

 You will follow the same basics steps as the MAC version only your font directory will be in a different location.

*Windows 7 version:
1. Open iTunes. Connect iPhone for faster transfer of files.

2. Click on iPhone device (i.e. Mine is Lindzie Head).

3. Click on Apps section. Scroll down to File Sharing. Double Click on Phonto.

4. Click Add... button

5. Locate File directory for your Fonts on your computer.
Windows 7 refers to it as Font Manager
Start > Control Panel > Fonts 
or
C:\Windows\Fonts

** If any of you need a different version of Windows, let me know. I'll see what I can find for you**  

6. Click on the font you want to add and Viola!
Font of choice can now be used.

7. Sync iPhone to ensure changes.

Will get some screen shots up soon.

I followed your instructions and when I get to Step 6 I can click on the font but it won't let me install :( I also have tons of true type fonts and only a handful will show up when I open my Fonts file through iTunes.

Thank you so much for posting this!! It seems so obvious with your explanation, but I would have never figured it out.
