Fonts for the iOS apps

Hi Paolo,

You obtain those licenses from the font developer. There are also lots of free fonts available, some open-source, others public domain.

Arial is owned by Microsoft (according to Wikipedia) and a license can be obtained from Ascendercorp. I have a feeling this is going to cost you hugely, because I can't find any prices on the website.

Best regards,
