How to add external fonts to android application

I was looking for some stylish fonts for my android application. but the problem is how can i make my android application supportable for external fonts.

Thank you.


You need to create fonts folder under assets folder in your project and put your TTF into it. Then in your Activity onCreate()

TextView myTextView=(TextView)findViewById(;
Typeface typeFace=Typeface.createFromAsset(getAssets(),"fonts/mytruetypefont.ttf");

Please note that not all TTF will work. While I was experimenting, it worked just for a subset (on Windows the ones whose name is written in small caps).
