droid – support for the Droid font families

The Droid typeface family was designed in the fall of 2006 by Steve Matteson, as a commission from Google to create a set of system fonts for its Android platform. The goal was to provide optimal quality and comfort on a mobile handset when rendered in application menus, web browsers and for other screen text. The Droid family consists of Droid Serif, Droid Sans and Droid Sans Mono fonts, licensed under the Apache License Version 2.0.

The bundle includes the fonts in both TrueType and Adobe Type 1 formats.

The package does not support the Droid Pro family of fonts, available for purchase from the Ascender foundry.
