Great, but old I have searched and searched and it looks like this app is the only one of its kind. Which is why it is great! However, it is really lacking in the holo department. And wildcards in search, really? Search should be simple and not nerdy. Having an advanced/precise search option in addition to simple search would be better. It doesn't look like this app is in active development anymore, but if it were I would love to see: holo GUI, better search, removal of legacy menu button and addition of action.
Great app Note that this app only displays using existing fonts -- it does not install any new fonts. The app also demonstrates that the default fonts supplied on most Android phones are completely inadequate (thank you app! shame on Google!). Unfortunately there is no way on Android to add new fonts or to supply missing characters without rooting the phone.
Does a good job Considering the hours I've spent attempting to work out how to insert a couple of particular characters (from Chinese input as well as Google keyboard, etc) and failed, this so far seems to save a lot of time despite its limited functionality. Thanks!
Useful, especially with search. I tried gucharmap, but it doesn't let me search for symbols. This app does! To those complaining about empty boxes: this is a problem with your phone's font, not the app.
👍 Awesome 👍 🙌 best unicode app I could find! I will 👊 anyone dissing this app! ➕ it's 🆓! Just copy and paste into googles keyboards personal dictionary. Want to learn more? Google it! 🙅. Thank you for this 🙆 app! Its the 💩! ✌!!!
Tears of joy 😂 Other "symbol" tools give you a selection, but this completely free app lets you see and use everything available in the system font. Be sure to check out the online documentation, which explains the "squares" that so bother those who evidently think their device should automatically support the Glagolitic and Old Persian alphabets. The interface is dated, and as others have noted a favorites list and less fussy search would be useful. Unfortunately, the developer admits to being poor at maintaining projects, so we're unlikely to see updates. 😞 Meantime, you can use this app for finding characters to add to the highly configurable SymbolsPanel.
New in 0.0.4:
• Unicode 6.1.0 (with emoticons!)
• Various useful buttons on character description popup
• Should now work properly with any screen size
