Works, but prepare to search

Needed symbol for micro gram and found it. You click what you want and a notice appears (and disappears within a second) saying it was copied. Return to your document and paste where desired... done.

There are many symbols all arraigned in the Windows Character Map format, but prepare to do some serious manual searching. Unlike The windows PC version I also didn't see a way to string characters together before copying. If I figure this out, it is added with a future update, or the search becomes easier, I will update my review.

Borderline 3 stars (met expectations), but I bumped it to a 4 (slightly exceeds expectations) due to it working quickly and without being bogged down by ads.


🚽 💩 It's crap

Waist of time
Although it does have the character map, the App redirects every 20 seconds by first opening the developer's web site in Safari, after which it immediately opens the App Store page of its pay version of this app. Closing the App Store and Safari doesn't help, as it just reopens them, switching screens and taking you along for the ride.
