Using Verdana Font for Buttons and Fields vs Segoe UI

Post by teriibi » Sun Mar 18, 2018 12:36 am

HI,
I m looking for fonts that would display as well on IOS devices than on Android ones.
My choice of fonts for buttons and Field would be : Verdana.
(I can only test on Android devices so far)

Is Verdana font common on IOS ? :roll:

..or what common (LC included) Font/s is/are used for such in IOs App :?:

Thanks for your experience... :idea:

Tks Klauz, yes it helps point some missing info ! :wink:

like...there is not info so as if it would be supported on the Apple TV if I get it right..

Can an LC app "run" on an Apple TV ? or is it a totally diferent plateform not made to run an APP ?
(Sorry I m a total ignorant about Apple TVs)

Mind you, I know nothing about apples app ecosystem, but a quick search does show that apple tv gets apps from the app store, and that apparently there are plenty of ways to program for it. Whether Lc apps made for the app store run on it or not is another question.

Here is a pretty good starting point for you on Stack Overflow.
