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.

Originally posted by openback

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.

ITaaS – Identity Theft as a Service with FileThis

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....

Do You Prefer Physical or on Screen Buttons?

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
