Powerful and Flexible


This is the most powerful and flexible unicode app I’ve seen to date, and relatively easy to use. Far better than the app I was previously using.

I was impressed when I saw the developer go out of their way to support an older app (NewPad), so that their legacy users would not lose content after migrating to iOS 11; so I’m happy to find something I can use that also supports an awesome developer.

Developer Response

Thanks! Improvement suggestions are welcome!

Great Unicode Keyboard


This is a great app for searching Unicode Glyphs and building custom keyboards to use. You can lookup and put any combination of glyphs on a keyboard for any app. My only very small complaint is that non-printable ASCII characters show as blanks in the keyboard.

The best in the app store!

Life in Truth

No others compare. This is the most comprehensive and it’s continuously maintained. Works great for me.
