Flash Different Text Fonts Through AROMA with FontFly

One of the simplest ways of giving your Android interface a new and refreshed look is to change the default font. Achieving this is easy, as all that’s required is switching the .ttf files in one of the system directories, hence the abundance of third-party apps in the Play Store requiring root access. And if you’re a user of one of the few ROMs that can change fonts for you, well, all the better!

But for those who are not running ROMs with this function, or who are aware of the possibilities of bootloops and other unpleasant issues from using a third-party app, you may want to check out XDA Senior Member xminirom’s FontFly AROMA package. FontFly is essentially an AROMA mod pack that houses a myriad different fonts that you can flash onto your device. There are 134 fonts in all.

Because of this large collection, xminirom splits FontFly into two parts to prevent the AROMA package from taking up too much space on your device’s storage. This also makes it significantly easier to find the font you’re looking for. And if you’re worried about not recognizing any of the confusing font names, there’s no need, as FontFly displays a preview of the font in AROMA itself.

If you’re interested in finding out more about FontFly, or have any questions to ask, head over to the original thread for more information.

Android M Code Name: Macadamia Nut Cookie

While the official name for the latest iteration of Android has yet to be revealed, the code name used internally by Google has been seen to be Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). This will almost certainly not be the final name for the release with rumors so far leaning towards milkshake, much like Key Lime Pie became Kit Kat and Lemon Meringue Pie became Lollipop. The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
