For a long time (since iOS 7.1), users of the Keyman for iPhone and iPad apps have been reporting issues when using keyboards that relied on custom font profile installations — we blogged about the issue back in April (https://blog.keyman.com/2014/04/how-to-fix-font-issues-with-keyman-on-ios-7_1/).
With the release of iOS 8, we can officially say that this issue is now resolved! Downloading and installing a font profile for a keyboard (for example Amharic) now works correctly, with the fonts remaining registered even after device restarts.
