I saw it on one of the screen shots.

You can see this font instead of default Droid Sans.

Saw Settings -> Fonts somewhere else with the name of the font.

Two main differences from Helvetica Neue from the market:
1. Smaller, everything fits just fine.
2. Distinctive bold font

I appreciate that but it's a new and slightly different font.
If you could make .apk from the .zip file above - that would be great!
(.Zip include Droid*.ttf fonts)

Sir a dumb question. New to Galaxy business and tried to flash the provided Zip in recovery but it says file not found. Also I like your battery percent mod, can you share it. I am using galaxy s with stock 2.2.1
