I’ve mentioned a number of libraries and tools, and with iOS 7 Apple has introduced the Text Kit framework providing a significant number of features for those using UIKit components with rich text.

Here’s a tutorial by Colin Eberhart explaining how to create your text, use the new dynamic text feature for user selectable fonts,  adjusting the layout, handling resizing and more.

Here are a couple of images from the app you’ll create within the tutorial showing off the different font styles, and how neatly the text resizes:

You can find the tutorial here.

If you’re unfamiliar with Text Kit and what it can do you might want to watch the WWDC 2013 Session 220 presentation and if you want further information on dynamic type there is a nice writeup at Captech Consulting here.

A very nice straightforward tutorial on getting started with Text Kit.
