To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with.

Type Fresh – Change Fonts on your Rooted Android Device
Type Fresh, developed by XDA forum member openback, lets you change system fonts on your rooted Android device.

This app is for systems with root access only. It offers 4 main functions:
- Apply selected TTF fonts to the system
- Backup system fonts to /sdcard/Fonts
- Restore backed up fonts from /sdcard/Fonts
- Place any TTF files you have in /sdcard/Fonts for easiest access.
Once applied, the system must be rebooted. Any ROM updates will overwrite any fonts with the default ones. Don’t worry though as your favorite fonts can be easily restored by using the backup tool in the application. Be careful to save original fonts if you wish to restore to these one day.
Type Fresh is available as a free download in the Market.
Check out the main application thread for more information.

Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
