The Wiki page for the Roboto font mentions some rather harsh critiques. How does this font look like to you? Is it something you'd use, or is it really that bad?

    I could see myself using the thin variant in some situations. It's nothing really special, but it's not terribad either.

    I do agree with the critique that all the different weights don't really play well together.

    Thanks, the reason I'm asking is because it looks good to me, but I obviously don't wanna use something graphic designers look down upon.

    Honestly, to hell with what other people think. Do what you think looks good.

    I'm pretty sure thats the system font for android now, so I think if google uses it its not bad

    Kinda feels like a jack of all trades font... im sure you can find much much better individual fonts to do whatever it is youre planning. Not a massive fan of Google fonts as a whole though.
