Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
Huge Font Packs for your HTC EVO, Change System Fonts
If you want to fresh up your EVO with some new looks, now this is a good way to do that. We found this awesome collection of fonts, gathered in one frequently updated thread by XDA member fachadick. The fonts are rated and there is a poll to make choosing one, much easier. There is even a font that was originally created for people with low vision issues, which seems to be working great. For now, the Cicle Fina font seems to be the most popular one.

A few days ago, I put together around 10 of these for a friend who managed to root his phone, but was uncomfortable doing anything other than flashing zips. I put those zips up here on XDA, and they turned out to be pretty popular. I’ll keep updating this thread with new fonts for as long as people are interested (or until it starts to be a pain)
There are some downsides of these fonts though. First of all, you will need to have root, Froyo and the latest clockwork. Furthermore, complex fonts could cause distortion or slow down your device. Luckily the developer added a star rating system to the downloads so you can see which ones work right. Just keep an eye on those ratings and the poll to find out the best fonts!
The downloads and more information can be found in the font thread.

If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
