Share My Creation MashStudio: Diving deeper into FontAwesome

Hi

After being inspired by this post, I decided that today I will embark on MashStudio, a fontawesome tool that anyone can use to explore and export fontawesome icons. Well, I wanted a library like FontAwesome for my B4i app, but then again, decided that I will just create this instead.

With this tool, one is able to:

1. View all fonts in a categorized format.
2. Search for a font
3. Design your own font (by specifing its R[ed], G[reen], B[lue] and also Size)
4. Save the font image icon and share it (can save to your dropbox for later use)

The size of the created font icons is between 10-100 and they have a white background. Would be nice to have them transparent though.

Enjoy..

PS: here is the apk. Now updated to include functionality to specify hex values

Make sure you target SDK < 23 or use the Runtime Permissions library, your app crashes on Marshmallow, also, check your layouts they do not look right.

See the screenshots (phone): Shot 1, Shot 2, Shot 3
Tablet: Shot 1, Shot 2

Also, try not to use DirRootExternal, because after uninstalling the app you leave behind orphan files, better to use DirDefaultExternal.

These are the logs:
