Unicode Keyboard


Show your ♥ with Unicode Keyboard!

Unicode Keyboard is a supplementary keyboard that allows you to enter any Unicode 6.0 character or symbol in any active text field.

When you want to add a character that your normal keyboard doesn't include, you simply switch input method to Unicode Keyboard, enter the characters you want and then switch the input method back to your usual keyboard. (Includes a convenient button for switching back.)


• Searchable, block grouped, list of all possible characters.

• Characters can also be entered directly by hexadecimal code.

• Remembers your last nine used characters and provides shortcuts for them so you don't have to go searching every time.


★ Want to type a Ω, µ, ☺, ∞, or ANY other Unicode symbol? Use Unicode Keyboard! ★


To enable the keyboard after installation go to Settings -> Language and Keyboards and then tick the Unicode Keyboard checkbox.

To activate the keyboard hold on a text area where you want to use it and select Input Method from the dialog that appears. Then select Unicode Keyboard. Select and insert the characters you want then tap the keyboard button at the bottom to switch back to your previous input method.


Note: Character display requires font support on the viewing system.

(You can enter any valid character but most will not be visible on your Android device and many will not be visible on your PC without an appropriate font installed. The characters will still work when sent to other services, they just don't display correctly on your phone.)

Needs fixing! The whole of Unicode, by hex code, with an easy way to switch back to your primary keyboard. Hasn't been searchable for several Android versions now, though.

Just what I was hoping to find Being able to enter any U+ hex code opens the world of Unicode. My Nexus 7 2, stock, has extensive Unicode support. I gathered these, below, using another Unicode app, before I discovered this. With a different device, you might not see all of them. Every item below is from Unicode.

Of limited use above Android 4.3 Worked fine up to Android 4.2.2 but since OTA update to 4.3 and beyond the embedded search keyboard has stopped working so making finding symbols very tedious.

Needs to be update I love this keyboard but it needs to be updated with the new Emoji's. I also think you should add a normal keyboard. So we can use it for texting and messaging.
