Easy Way to Download and Install Free Fonts from the Google Collection


If you are one of the many PC users who like to have a variety of fonts on your computer, now is your chance to make a big addition to your collection. For several years Google has had a very large catalog of fonts  that are free and open source (link here). However, using them meant manually browsing through a large selection online to see what you wanted to download and install.

But now Google has just made its collection available for download with an app called “SkyFonts” from Monotype.  The app installs fonts that you select from the collection and comes in both 32- and 64-bit versions. It works in Windows XP on up but it does require installation of the full .NET 4.0 framework. The app provides for automatic updating if new characters are added to a font. The app is available at this link.

There are 1109 fonts and installation is done through the interface shown below. You still have to select and install fonts individually but the app makes it quite easy.
