Alternatives to the San Francisco font used in Apple Notes app!

Go to solution Solved by Riccardo Sartori,

Need help finding some alternatives to the San Francisco font used in the Notes App in Apple devices. 


I tried looking for some, but couldn't find something exactly similar. I'm looking for fonts which are similar and have a singer decker 'a'. 


Thank you!

The most similar I can find is Eloquia (display regular).

Looking for a "single decker" a, the one you linked has a double decker 'a'!

The single storey |a| is an alternate. Most grotesques have a double storey |a| as default and some have a single storey one as alternate. Single storey |a|s as default are more common in geometric sans styles. If having a single storey |a| as default is more important than similarity, you can look for the keyword "infant" or, off the top of my head, check Forma or Poppins.
