android app

new Android type app just released

Hello:

I've developed an app called Typism for type enthusiasts, on the Android platform. Typism could be of use to artists, designers, or anyone who loves type.

Here's the Android Market URL, where you can download it and look at screenshots: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.augmentedmind.fontwhat...

I'd be grateful for suggestions about what might be needed or just be cool to have, and feedback about what I have so far implemented.

As of now, the user can:
▪ display samples of all font files on the device ending in .ttf or .otf, with the exception of fonts located inside other application bundles. This does include the system fonts.

new Android type app in development

Hello, I'm developing an app for type enthusiasts, on the Android platform. Perhaps it will be of use to artists, designers, or anyone who just loves type.

As of now, the user can:

  • display samples of all font files on the device ending in .ttf or .otf, with the exception of fonts located inside other application bundles. This does include the system fonts.
  • display the contents of the font file's "name" table (see http://www.microsoft.com/typography/otspec/name.htm or https://developer.apple.com/fonts/TTRefMan/RM06/Chap6name.html). This contains copyright, licensing, designer, manufacturer, and other information.
  • grow or shrink the sample text and apply bold, italic and underline styles to it.
  • apply custom background and text colors
