The new Droid font collection provides an extensive set of styles, weights and language support. Each of the Droid fonts was custom designed by Ascender and optimized for on-screen legibility with the Android platform.

Each of the Droid fonts contains an extensive character set with coverage including Western Europe, Eastern/Central Europe, Baltic, Cyrillic, Greek and Turkish.

Support for CJK is provided by the Droid Sans "fallback" font. This font contains over 43,000 glyphs and includes support for Simplified Chinese (GB2312), Traditional Chinese (Big 5), Japanese (JIS 0208) and Korean (KSC 5601). This font uses the Simplified Chinese ideographs for shared Unicode code points.

Ascender continues to develop and enhance the Droid font collection. Ascender is working with OHA members to customize the Droid font family for the Android platform.

Ascender is also developing “Pro” versions with OpenType advanced typographic features for creative professionals.
