About Droid Sans Font
Droid Sans Font is a sans serif typeface family designed by Steve Matteson on behalf of Google. The font family has long been used in Android devices. Droid series fonts were the standard fonts of the Android system before 2011. After 2011, with the release of Android 4.0, the default font was replaced by the Roboto and Noto.
The font is optimized for readability on small devices such as mobile phones. The name comes from Android, the Open Handset Alliance platform. Variants of Droid font are available to support multibyte character sets such as CJK with a small memory footprint available on mobile devices.
The Droid family includes a sans serif variant, one serif, and a non-proportional variant, which is very similar to one of Matteson’s previous designs, Andalé Mono.
