Instead of using an Adobe font, find a free font which is as beautiful.

I’ve already planned something great for the 1.0 : PT (sans, sans narrow, mono and serif, in good proportions) and a bit of helvetica. It will be great :)

But I agree, because this font isn’t free, we have to find another good before Jappix 1.0. What do you think about Pontano Sans http://www.google.com/webfonts/specimen/Pontano+Sans and Karla http://www.google.com/webfonts/specimen/Karla.

I think we can find many good fonts on Google webfonts or https://typekit.com/. There’s also FontSquirrel that proposes a lot a fonts. Some ain’t adapted for webdesign. However, I’ve this website in my bookmarks : http://www.goodwebfonts.com/
FF seems good. Ratio is a classic font.
I also like Proxima Nova : https://typekit.com/fonts/proxima-nova

We just need to make tests. Personnally, I love Garamond Font, but it’s not adapted to a social platform. Maybe we can set it in the posts but it doesn’t make modern.

Pontano Sans seems good ;) We have to stay 'classical' for fonts.

I don’t think Maven Pro is a good font for Jappix. Too much fancy.

Did not tested yet in the app, but it sounds good when I preview it. Maybe you're right Julien, will test it up ;)
