I just thought I'd post a note here for myself and others about what font families are available using Titanium with each device.
Firstly, Android currently only recognises monospace, serif and sans-serif, although support for TTFs is coming.
Some background info about fonts and android can be found in this lighthouse ticket.
iphone offers more than this. Thanks to blainH for the info.
The fonts exposed in Titanium are the same as any other native app would have. This does vary from OS to OS (IE, later versions of iOS have more fonts). I thought there was a means exposed in Titanium to get the font families, but instead, here they are: Common to all iOS devices: American Typewriter AppleGothic Arial Arial Hebrew Arial Rounded MT Bold Courier Courier New DB LCD Temp Geeza Pro Georgia Heiti J Heiti K Heiti SC Heiti TC Helvetica Helvetica Neue Hiragino Kaku Gothic ProN Marker Felt Thonburi Times New Roman Trebuchet MS Verdana Zapfino Beyond the common list, 3.1.3 (first gen iPod Touch) also has: Arial Unicode MS Beyond the common list, 3.2 (iPad) also has: Academy Engraved LET Baskerville Bodoni 72 Bodoni 72 Oldstyle Bodoni 72 Smallcaps Bodoni Ornaments Bradley Hand Chalkduster Cochin Copperplate Didot Futura Gill Sans Hiragino Mincho ProN Hoefler Text Optima Palatino Papyrus Party LET Snell Roundhand Zapf Dingbats Beyond the common list, 4.0 (third gen iPod touch) also has: Bangla Sangam MN Baskerville Cochin Devanagari Sangam MN Futura Gujarati Sangam MN Gurmukhi MN Kannada Sangam MN Malayalam Sangam MN Oriya Sangam MN Palatino Sinhala Sangam MN Tamil Sangam MN Telugu Sangam MN Note that these lists do not include the bold, heavy, oblique, and/or italic variants.
I guess the question I have is what font(s) can I choose to keep the layout similar on multiple platforms. I have Helvetica on my iPhone app and when I run it on the Android side everything is different. As you said, TTF is not supported on Android yet, so what font choice maintains the closest cross platform look?
Hmm, in this Q&A, there is currently no way to close your own question, even when you answer it yourself.
