Thanks for this wonderful tool For some reason it doesn't longer seem to work with the Galaxy S4. Installed my APK, see the Font in the font selection menu but when I try to change to it it says that the font isn't on the device.

I got reports that custom fonts are not working in galaxy s4, Can you provide the screenshots of font selection screen as well as the error?

Thanks, I've tried it but nothing happens. With this one the font name doesn't even show up in the font list.

Is it possible for you to remove SamsungSans.apk from your phone and install the attached one here(font changed). I don't know whether you will be able to uninstall samsungsans

Works great as far as far creating the apk, installing & having it listed as a font. However, when I select the font it says, "This font is not available."

Edit: Tried using Root Explorer & moved "example.tff" to system/fonts & still getting the same error. Also tried moving the font apk I created into that folder, installed from there & got the error, again. "This font is not available." :confused:

There must be some way because the bauhaus font i purchased in the store works fine.

Really? I tried several fonts downloaded from Google Play, but non of them working so far ... maybe cuz i tried free fonts, not the payed ones. The funny thing is that i followed the "Get more fonts" link in Settings/My Device/Display/Fonts ... shouldn't they all be compatable with the S4 if u follow that official link? Strange ... now how should i know which one will work or not before purchase it?

As far as i get it this is not a S4 issue, it's because Android 4.2.2 ...:eek:

    Very interesting app :)

    Could you implement a batch version ?

    Like ability to select multiple ttf and generate apks on the fly instead of having to do one by one ?

    thanks for your answer :highfive:

    Fonts created are not working in android devices 4.3 and above. Need to do changes, I actually abandoned the project. Let me see to implement thi s now.
