I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

When selecting fonts for a mobile device you must consider lots of things, if you want to keep the same font across all of your devices, you should go for a well behaved font tested and proved for almost any size (like seriffs) , due to smaller screen sizes, fonts that look great on desktop may not look so good on a small screen, specially if they are thin fonts that become really  hard to read in smaller screens and more so if using retina displays, here is a good article with some guidelines, but i am sure you can dig a lot more in this subject: Fonts for Material Design
