I just bought forecast and love how it shows me the date/time/weather on my lock screen. I was curious though can I change the font?

I don't know how to just specifically change that font but I know if you download Bytafont you can change your system font and that will change it too.

Thanks Johnny okay so that is how people are doing it. No noticeable lag or memory leaks by doing this? I will check that out appreciate the reply.

In my opinion bytafont doesn't hit the battery hard. The first time you run the app it makes a complete backup of your stock fonts. Then when you choose a new font, it replaces the original font. Therefore it basically has the same impact as stock. It loads it all once and then its cached and good to go. At least that's my understanding. I think back in the day it loaded the fonts more frequently but that might also have been FontSwap and not bytafont. Either way its a safe and well used tweak. You shouldn't run into any issues.
