 Is there a way to convert a free app to a paid for ? Does not look like this
option is available in the "upload an Application" page. What are the
options ?

Converting a free app to a paid-for

You cannot start charging for an app that was previously free. You will
need to release a separate paid app.

 If your application is a pay application, and you make it free as a
temporary promotion, can you then charge again?

That's a good question. All I know is that in my Market panel, things
that are free have the paid option disabled.

 I don't think so. I believe I saw a post on the Market Help Forums about
this. Someone tried this and was surprised to find they couldn't revert
back. Same rules apply. Once it's free it stays free.

 No, you can't.

At least, the market didn't let me do this the last time I tried
(about 6 weeks ago). Sales on a particular app were near zero, so I
decided to put ads in it and distribute it for free. Once I did so,
the option to toggle it back to paid was permanently disabled.

2. Extrapolating fonts

We trying to use a regular font and use the font engine to extrapolate
that to BOLD format.   I just tried with free font DejaVuSans.

Typeface regFace = Typeface.createFromAsset(getContext().getAssets(),
                                                                           
"fonts/
DejaVuSans.ttf");

Typeface        boldFace = Typeface.create(regFace, Typeface.BOLD);

Now when we set the type face to this boldFace in the paint object
using setTypeface(boldFace);

When we draw the text,  we are expecting bold fonts.  What we see is
regular fonts.  Is this not the right usage ?

Please advise and thanks in advance.
