Charm - Quick Unicode Search

Charm is a mobile character map. If you need a particular Unicode character quickly, just open Charm, type part of the character's name, and tap the character card. It will be copied to the clipboard and you can go back to what you were doing.

It's really useful with a shortcut to launch it from anywhere, but it works just fine without.

It works for maths symbols, foreign letters, obscure punctuation, snowman (for some reason) and many emoji. You have to know the correct Unicode name at first, but you can put your own name in once you've found it.

If you use a symbol a lot, or manually tell Charm to prioritise it, it will always appear at the top of any search that matches it. You can also 'downvote' symbols that annoy you.

The web version is free, but slower and can be data-heavy on mobile. Try it at
Renaming and priority features require Honeycomb or later.

What's New

We now support multi-character emoji as well as unicode codepoints.

For example, the family emoji are built from the individual person emoji and zero-width joiners — these now work in Charm thanks to Emoji One's SDK.

This doesn't support Emoji 4.0 yet, but will when Emoji One updates, hopefully soon!
