Several months ago, I changed my base font using Font Installer. Now I can't remember the name of the font I changed to. Is there a simple way to find out?

Why don’t you attach a screenshot of your font? I might be able to recognize it. – fitojb Jan 6 '13 at 17:19

The default font in Android devices is called Droid. I think Droid Sans might be what you are looking for.

And on ICS it's now Roboto. – eldarerathis Apr 12 '12 at 14:31
Yes, I know those are the defaults. But, as I said, I CHANGED the font. I want to know the name of my current one! – skittleys Apr 12 '12 at 18:45
Ah, OK. Your original question got me confused... – Tschareck Apr 12 '12 at 21:12
These are not the Droid Sans you are looking for. Sorry - couldn't resist. – Adam Apr 30 '12 at 2:29

If you are looking for the name of the font you have changed to, you can use the website What the Font.

That's a great tool, thanks! But there must be some way to figure out what it is via Android.... – skittleys Apr 12 '12 at 18:45

I think the easiest way would be to find a textarea where you can input big text, and then just take a screenshot and upload it to What the Font. That's probably the easiest way.
