Hello everyone! I am Preet one of the students working on Google Summer of Code(GSoC), and I need some Feedback & Opinion about my project for this summer.
About The Project
Name: Custom Font Typeface Support
Description: An approach to enhance the functionality of MIT App Inventor by adding support of Custom Font typeface.
Mentors: Evan W. Patton @ewpatton, Susan Rati Lane @Susan_Lane
Currently, MIT App Inventor does not support custom fonts, the user can only choose between Sans-Serif, Serif, Monospace, or default fonts, so the main abstract of the project is to add custom font support to visible components of MIT App Inventor like buttons, checkboxes, etc...
How can this help the app created with MIT App Inventor?
Custom fonts allow you to use beautiful combinations of different fonts on your app to improve typography and user experience. Aside from looking good, custom fonts can also help you improve readability, create a brand image, and increase the time users spend on your app.
After implementation users can use custom fonts for their apps and its increased functionality allows more flexible user-interface designs.
for more information, you can check out my project proposal here. I will be very happy if you suggest to me more ideas or something regarding my implementing approach.
leave your valuable comment on proposal docs or this conversation thread, Especially I request all Power User @powerusers.
