    Question FlipFont/Other Fonts??

    I just now realized that the fonts can be changed in my GS3. I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to get other fonts (preferably for free...not the ones on the market) and how to install them. I googled and tried one this morning, but I couldnt get the file to open, so all in all, it did not work.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. unzip them on your pc
    2. sideload individual fonts (.apks)
    3. browse to those .apks with a file explorer of your choice (astro, es file explorer, etc)
    4 Install by clicking on the file.
    5. Then select the newly installed fonts in the font section of display settings.

    Unfortunatley you have to install them one by one...

    No you do not need to be rooted to do any of this.

    Just put them on the root of your sd card, then use a file explorer to browse to that location and long press on the "fontname.apk" then chose "install".

    Or download fontomizer from the Play Store. Not a ton of fonts, but it has a decent selection.
