* * *

Hi everyone,
Almost two years have passed since I last updated my Symbols app (which was my first iOS app ever!). A lot has changed since then but one of the things which remained constant is that some people still found this little tool very useful. I was surprised by the amount of emails I got when Symbols Keyboard stopped working properly last fall — apparently the app was still alive and being actively used. Sadly, at the time I was busy working on my more important projects and, being good at procrastination, fixing that keyboard issue took me a few months (but in reality I spent just about three hours on this bug). Anyway, sorry for the delay.

Lastly, if you have found Symbols useful, please take a minute to leave a nice review: it really helps. Thank you for your support. <3

Customer Reviews

An extremely useful app

Updated review: This is still a very useful app for me. I love having the superscript and subscript numbers. The degree sign, the trademark superscript. It’s all been wonderful. This morning, I updated to iOS 11 and the app automatically goes to my recents screen and I can’t get back to the selection screen.

My day to day life exists in the world of Windows and I use the alt+ codes frequently. So upon getting my iPhone years ago, there was frustration when I couldn't find or create the symbols I wanted to use when typing emails or notes.

This app has practically everything one could need for creating anything, from a document to mathematical formulas to a recipe.

Thank you for coming back to update this!!!

You have no idea how excited I was when I saw that this wonderful app has been updated!!! I missed it very very much!

I was so bummed out when the keyboard stopped working... I used it all the time for mathematics and the like but when it stopped working, I couldn't find another app that came close to what this one did!

This is.... hands down... the best symbols keyboard in the Apple store!!! It prolly has every symbol/special character you will ever need!

Maybe too Complete! But handy & reliable!

UPDATE: Still my go-to EZ keyboard fro quick access to symbols. Smooth; GR8! Speedy, small memory footprint.

This iOS 3rd party keyboard is GR8. I have tested 4 of them that are supposed to be math/science special character keyboards.

"Favorites" feature is the best thing about this one. *And* it is important because the developer has included TOO MANY symbols. It makes finding the one you want quite hard.

Runs reliably in testing over 2 weeks with iPhone 5S running iOS 9.2.1


+ Offer paid upgrade or paid versions to let the user have JUST a science & math symbols keyboard.
- remove the emojis (!) because they add more clutter and are best accessed with a dedicated emoji keyboard.
I will keep this keyboard installed and hope for updates and a chance to review it again.
