    Look into licensing a font for a mobile app for a laugh. Its often £100s/1000s per weight. Completely ridiculous.

      Indeed! I was so busy with web license that I forgot about the other ridiculous pricing. What format do mobile apps use? TTF/OTF?

      End of the day they need you more than you need them your app can exist just fine without their typeface, vote with your wallet.

      Thousands of high quality free/open alternatives these days, it's not the 90s anymore.
