Character Pad – Special Characters Paste Board
By David Caddy
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Character Pad gives you quick access to hundreds of beautiful and useful special characters, which you can use in any application.
Simply tap a character to copy it to your device's clipboard, open any other app, and paste it anywhere you like. Done. Easy!
Customise your IMs, emails, documents and other texts with this great selection of special characters & symbols.
- Greek alphabet
- Math symbols
- Letterlike symbols
- Many more!
What two App Store reviewers had to say about Character Pad:
"Dead easy to use and works a treat! Update with more characters some time........" - Soxcat
"Fast, simple, does one thing and does it seemlessly. No more having to write ½ as 1/2. Thank you, well worth the dollar!" - Auntmarge64

Please Note: Characters will be readable from any iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Mac and most PCs. Some special characters may appear as question marks (?) or squares for some recipients of text messages whom use non-iPhone mobiles.
What's New in Version 2.3.3
- Fixed a bug that could cause duplicate characters to appear in the recents section
Find the character or symbol you need and tap it. It's copied to the clipboard, from which you can insert it into your document. iPhone's clipboard, unlike Microsoft's computer clipboard, seems to hold only one item at a time. So if you have to insert more than one character, you have to go back and forth between the app and your document until your document contains all needed characters--then you can copy them from inside the document for reuse in that document. This can be clumsy & slow going sometimes. Hence 4 stars not 5.
But this app has never failed to deliver the characters I need--subscripts, superscripts, math symbols, Greek--material needed by serious users. Sad that this material was (I suppose) ignored by (or unknown to) some developers at Apple, who (I imagine) dropped out of college instead of growing their minds. Can't Apple buy this app and thus integrate its software, making it accessible from Settings > General > Keyboard > Languages?
I feel kind of guilty about using Character Pad when all my friends ask how I do that cool stuff and I don’t tell them because it makes me cooler than they. Hell, everybody’s got secrets, right? I mean, Jimmy Kimmel stuffs his pants an old girlfriend told me and Clooney’s been on Viagra since before, well, since before.
ULTIMATE RIP OFF!!!
This WAS the best free app of its kind before the "update" took most of the characters away, forcing you to purchase what you had in the first place.
NEW: Purchase options include a reduced cost for veterans (among others). But when you select that option, you are still charged full price (4 times the amount). I can understand the need for proof, but if you have no way to verify - DO NOT PRETEND to offer a lower cost.
