34

All Samsung devices come with the FlipFont app inbuilt. The app is inbuilt into the TouchWiz UX and can be accessed from Settings> Display> Fonts. Today, we have come up with a simple APK that can let you enjoy more than 300 fonts on Samsung Galaxy devices without root privilege.

Most Android users love OS because it allows extensive customization. That’s why, at DroidViews, we never miss featuring any app or mod that lets you revamp your phone’s UI and give it a personal touch. If you have root access on your phone, there are a plethora of stuff like custom ROMs, app and ROM ports, and mods at your disposal.

However, if you have not rooted your Samsung device and still want to customize it, you got limited but many ways to do that. Besides, 3rd-party home launchers, lock screen apps, wallpapers, icon packs and Samsung’s own theme engine, you can also enjoy custom fonts. Our today’s tip about installing hundreds of custom fonts is one of easiest thing you can do on your Samsung Galaxy phone or tablet.

  • Sad to know. I just updated the instructions. What’s your S8’s model number?

    Hi Rakesh
    Thanks for trying to help…
    Unfortunately I tried the method from here: http://www droidviews.com/install-twrp-and-root-samsung-galaxy-s8-and-s8-exynos-variants/ but all gone wrong!…
    First the TWRP for the 8+ didn’t work as going to recovery the screen is dead (no touch…)
    As I couldn’t restart the phone I tried the S8 link and this time the phone responded to touch in the TWRP…
    Happy that I just had a wrong link I tried the rest of the instructions flashing the Magisx (in my excitement, without making a Backup…), couple of “red” messages during the root flashing fast enough to make it difficult to read and then automatically reboot to a Samsung message Saying that it need to reset the device as the security check failed and only choice the reset… Unfortunately after click in “Reset” button it din’t succeeded as had many “red” massages when it tied to reset…
    Then I tried to flash the “no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip” hoping that it will allow at least the Samsung to reset the phone…
    Wishful thinking…
    After more “red” messages during the flashing back yo the same Samsung message…
    Despaired then I tried to flash again the TWRP and during one of the many tried we had a electricity “spike” in the middle of flashing it and after that I have a phone which I can only go to “download” or the dead/no touch “recovery” and the Odin can’t “see” the device even after I installed “new” windows drivers even the KIES/SMART SWITCH from Samsung…
    Do you know any way to make the phone readable by the PC again? I may find a Samsung ROM to flash it then…

  • Terry Kontopoulos

    The fonts were working fine in my S7 Edge and I was hoping they will go fine with the S8+ too….
    Oh well, we can only wait till the MASTERS use their Magic TOUCH!!! :-))

  • Wait until a root method is available for the S8+. Then install the fonts provided here: http://www.droidviews.com/install-1060-fonts-on-samsung-galaxy-devices-lollipop-mm-nougat/

    It really works tried myself on S7 Edge (I am waiting for my S8+ to arrive).

  • Terry Kontopoulos

    Unfortunately it doesn’t work with S8+… Incompatible fonts it said…
    I will appreciate a trick if it’s possible… 🙂

  • Glad to know!

  • Ameen Gany

    Thx..work perfectly in my note 4 custom rom nemesis port note 7….

  • Irshad shaikh

    Without rooting

  • Irshad shaikh

    I think if I will use TWRP then my phone needs to be rooted ???
    Please tell me the total procedure of flashing custom fonts and the font file also…

  • On Marshmallow, you can flash custom fonts via TWRP.

  • Irshad shaikh

    Bro I need Fonts for my Galaxy A800I I was unable to get Fonts from any where on internet I think there is no Fonts available for marshmallow firmware……

    not work on my galaxy s7

  • DAC324

    Does not work on Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. You can install the app, choose a font but no matter which font you choose, you always get “this font is not supported”.

    Galaxy A7000 – Version 5.0.2

  • Can you list the devices and their firmware version?

  • Dunmore

    Doesn’t work on any samsung galaxy phone actually. Tried it on more than 6 models

  • Dunmore

    This doesn’t work at all

  • daryl

    I downloaded it…but when i install it it says not intalled

  • Tried this on my SG Note 3, running on Kitkat. Unfortunately got parsing error thing 🙁

  • Not now.

  • HybridHuman

    ah sorry I missed that in your entry. So there’s no solution for Android M users without root?

  • Hi,

    It does not slow down the phone. You are getting that error because the app is not compatible with Marshmallow firmwares. Try it on Lollipop or Kitkat and it will work like a charm.

  • HybridHuman

    Thanks for the article. Does this work for anyone? Downloaded the file, clicked on “Install”, but it doesn’t install. I get an error message saying “App not intalled” and that’s it.

  • HybridHuman

    Hi. Thanks for this, really good article. Does it slow down the phone to have that many fonts installed? thnx
