Removing the default Marker Felt puts Arial as the default font in MobileNotes … John Gruber found a way (by hex editing the MobileNotes app binary) to get Helvetica in place, and ooh … I think this (as of yesterday) does void the warranty 😛
iPhone : Arial vs. Helvetica

This is a bit too much for me. I like Helvetica, always did (see my 4M logo), but the notes screenshot looks absolutly awful!
I mean it’s just for notes. It’ not a text editor. Marker Felt fits perfectly for that small notes matter.
Besides, Helvetica text makes the icons below look a bit silly (sure, these icons are another story, but they match Marker Felt ways better).
Helvetica hype at it’s best.
