Font Licenses

The Droid fonts included with the Android SDK are distributed under the Apache License, Version 2.0.

Ascender is working with Open Handset Alliance members and other partners to modify and customize the Droid fonts. Some of these new versions may be added to the Android SDK under the Apache License, while other versions will remain proprietary and offered by Ascender under a commercial license.

In addition to custom versions of the Droid fonts, Ascender is developing "Pro" versions which will be available for purchase/download by creative professionals under a commercial font license.

View the Ascender End User License Agreement for the Droid Pro fonts.

The "Pro" versions will be in the OpenType format with additional typographic features. The initial release has Old Style Figures, and more enhancements are planned for the future.

New weights, such as Droid Sans Condensed, are also in development.

If you have any questions regarding the font license or custom type development, please contact us.
