Easy Access to Unicode Symbols in Any App

Finally, a useful Unicode keyboard for iOS 8. My most frequently used symbols appear as the first choice when I call up the keyboard. It's a relief not to have to scroll through a lot of useless emoticons to find the music notation symbols I use the most. I'd add another star if there were a way to look up a character with its Unicode value rather than doing a visual search. (For the reviewers who commented that many Unicode symbols don't appear, that's a limitation of iOS, not that app. Many extended symbols are not supported in the iOS operating system, but thousands are.)

Awesome idea

4/5 because it's an excellent concept but still many many glyfs don't appear (and yes, I do have fonts with sufficient coverage though I'm not sure if Apple will let you use third-party fonts as keyboard characters). One other minus is limitation to basic map plane (0000-FFFF), there are lots of characters already in planes 1 and 2.

Please fix these issues as well as add a permanent space button.

A very smart and useful keyboard

The idea is very smart and the implementation is very good. Makes me able to type everything properly on my phone. You should definitely have it if you have any interest in Unicode or some part of it.
