I am a fan of Android’s default Roboto font. It has come a long way and with Android L, it’s only getting better. But the beauty of Android is that you can change stuff, for better or worse.

There are legitimate reasons to change fonts on your Android phone. If you’re using a Samsung phone, you might want to switch to Roboto, or you might be tired of using the same default font for years, like everyone else.

Here’s your chance to spice up your rooted Android phone’s life. The app we’re going to talk about offers a variety of free fonts to choose from. Everything from classy sans-serifs to cursive to funky fonts. As your phone is rooted, the app allows you to change fonts system-wide or on a per app basis.

How do you do all this? Follow the guide below to find out.

Install Xposed Framework

We’ve previously discussed the Xposed Framework, which is a platform for rooted apps enabling the installation of app mods. Fonter, the app we’ll be using today, is one of these mods that allows you to change fonts.
