In my prior post on fonter, I walked though how to use the text fonts. Several things have changed from that point in time; including iOS now auto-registers the fonts.

It is supposed to be backwards compatible; but I was not successful in… Continue reading Upgrading to NativeScript v1.3 from earlier versions.
