    Default Bytafont - use light version of system font
    Hi guys,

    Is there a way to use the Helvetica Neue or the lighter version of the font for the icon labels? I'm using the Roboto font right now, but I don't really like how the icon labels are thicker/bolder. I'd like to use the width of font that I see in the body of email in the mail app.

    Is this possible? Any help would be appreciated!

    You can change the font weight in the info.plist that you have active in your theme.

    Place this between the string /string under un/docked icon labels.

    font-weight: 100;

    Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
    To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!

    Hey King,

    I tried that, but I'm guessing my Roboto font doesn't have anything lighter. I've requested a "Roboto Light" font via the Bytafont request site, could use some more votes (you need to create an account on the site).

    If you and other ModMyi'ers could help vote, that would be great!

    Here's the site:
    Roboto Light - BytaFont

    Thanks!
