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.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
