Want to use FontAwesome in Universal Apps (both Windows Phone & Windows 8.1). The procedure is similar to how you do it for WPF:
1) Install-Package FontAwesome
2) Mark the file /fonts/fontawesome-webfont.ttf with “Build Action” set to “Content” (not “Resource”)
3) Try out the font like this in a sample Windows Phone main page:
<Viewbox> <TextBlock Text="" FontFamily="fonts/fontawesome-webfont.ttf#FontAwesome" /> </Viewbox>
And you should see:
Note that the steps and syntax is a bit different from how you do it in WPF.
