Embedding font in app

Hi,

I'm using LTC Bodoni (via TypeKit) on my website and now I'm working on my digital portfolio: basically HTMl5+CSS, packed with Baker Framework to be published on Apple Store.

I would use the font with @font-face.
I'm wondering if the licence of Bauer Bodoni allows this kind of use.

I want ot be sure before buying the font...

On Bauer Bodoni webpage (http://store2.adobe.com/cfusion/store/html/index.cfm?store=OLS-IT&event=displayFontPackage&code=1294) Embedding licence is set to Editable for this font: so I could embed the font in a digital document and "the embedded font can then be used by the recipient of the electronic document to view, print and further edit or modify the text and structure of the document in which it is embedded."
Using a font inside an app is a little bit different: my final file is not a real document, it's an app. But the recipient (final user) will not be able to modify the document or use the font in no way, because it will be embedded inside the app.

Does someone have any idea?

Does licence cover use inside app or not?

Thanks!

maurizio

I am sure someone more authoritative than me will be along shortly. But if you peruse this area, you will find this question has been asked and answer before. If you want to use an Adobe font in an app or application a special license is required.

Hi Michael,

thanks a lot for your answer!

I looked for the same question or similar questions in the forum, but didn't find anything: my fault, sorry...
