Answer

You need to ensure that you are using the correct name with fonts. It's tricky. Try to open the font with fontbook in mac, or the equivalent in windows. On a mac, when you open the font in fontbook, you should be able to see the exact name under "PostScript name":

Then, assuming that you have properly added the font to your project, you should attempt to use it. For example, if you have a *myTextField pointer to a UITextField, and you want to use DIN-Medium 13pt you may set your custom font like so:

myTextField.font = [UIFont fontWithName:@"DIN-Medium" size:13.0f];
