Fonts in iPhone and iPad apps

A certain "LeFly" (first name Arthur) wrote this about finding fonts that are used by iPhone or iPad applications:

Many iOS (iPhone, iPad) apps contain ttf or otf fonts, either to add choice over the standard iOS fonts (for instance apps that allow one to set text on photographs or greeting cards), or to apply a corporate identity to the app. Most of the time it's really easy (like, unzip-the app-and-open-a-folder easy) to get to these fonts. Most fonts I found are more or less known freeware stuff, and therefore not too interesting, but some are from commercial foundries and sometimes they are even non-available custom corporate fonts. In about an hour I was able to find and extract several fonts from legitimate and free corporate apps. Actually, most of that time was spent trawling the AppStore to find apps that might have interesting fonts inside.

He then proceeds with this list:
