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.
