KD-Font v1.2.4

So you're looking for something to give your phone a fresh look, right? But you don't want to spend a ton of time learning how to do something super simple... You've come to the right place!

KD-Font allows you to change the fonts on your Windows Mobile device, within a matter of seconds. And you don't have to take time to even learn how to use the app! Just jump into the library, pick a font you like, tap "Apply", and watch the magic happen. The app will download any font(s) you choose from a remote server, apply the fonts, and then leave you to enjoy the results! Looking to customize the experience a bit? Check out the "Library Settings" to fine tune KD-Font to your liking.

The server-based library allows you to have constant access to an ever-growing collection of fonts to choose from! Since the library is server-based, you also won't have a ton of space being taken up on your device for font files you'll never use. And if you do want to save the files, just make sure to turn the option on in the "Library Settings". Then you can switch back and forth between your favorite fonts without waiting for a download.

You can choose to apply fonts to the entire device, specifically the Windows Mobile OS, or specifically the HTC Sense (TF3d) UI! You can even apply different fonts to WM and Sense if you want!

Heard enough? Download the CAB below, install it on your device, and then go for it!

Q: What are the system requirements for KD-Font?
1) WM6 or higher (6.1, 6.5, 6.5.X)
2) .NETCF 3.5

Q: Is KD-Font uninstallable?
A: Yes. KD-Font can be uninstalled via “Start > Settings > System > Remove Programs”. This will remove the app, and restore the default fonts to the device.

Q: Can I install KD-Font to my SD card?

Q: Can I apply different fonts to WM and/or Sense (TF3D)?

Q: Will this work on any build of Sense/TF3D?
A: KD-Font should change the font for any build of Sense/TF3D. If you experience issues with fonts not changing appropriately, please PM me with details.

Q: I can’t see all of the text in certain areas. What happened?
A: Depending on the font(s) you have applied, you may notice visual differences in the amount of text that displays in a given area. This is due to the fact that each font style has different size characters. For example, the “A” character for the Bank Gothic font is much larger than the “A” character in the Calibri font. Before changing the font, try adjusting the “Text Size” settings on the device. If it still does not suit your visual needs, just apply a different font.

Q: Where is my favorite font?
A: The (5) most popular fonts are included in the application. You can use the "Update Library" function to access the extended server-based font library.

Q: Are you taking font requests?

Q: Where can I get ideas for font requests?
A: HERE. There are a TON of fonts on this site, and you can search by title, genre, theme, movie, etc.

Q: How do I submit a font request?
A: PM me with the following:
1) Font Title
2) .TTF files for the font (if possible)
3) If #2 is not available, a link to download or preview the font
NOTE: The more information/resources provided, the less time it will take to fulfill the request.

Q: Can I use my own *.TTF files with KD-Font?
A: No. The *.TTF files have to be modified before they will apply properly, and these modifications cannot be made at runtime. If you would like a specific font, please submit a request.

Q: Where/how do I report errors?
A: Please report any errors in this thread. Myself, BETA Team Members, and other users may be able to help with your issue. When reporting an error, please include the following:
- Error Code (if applicable)
- Device
- Screen Resolution
- WM OS Version (6, 6.1, 6.5, 6.5.X, etc.)
- Sense(TF3D) Build (2.1, 2.5, etc.)
- Brief description of the context of the error, and the steps leading up to the error

at this point, you wont be able to change the font color, as that is controlled by an array of different files for different areas of the OS/UI. once we're further along with the initial release, we can start digging into the process of changing font color.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, and we're very close to public release!!!
