Fancy Characters

Sergey let me know that Fancy Characters has been updated to version 4.0. If you're not familiar with the app, it easily lets you add characters from your BlackBerry to your emails, BBM and more. Fancy Characters shows all of the country flags, smilies and icons your device has to offer and lets you add them with just a few clicks. New features of version 4.0 include:

  • Added few missing flags and fixed existing codes.
  • Reworked flags list to include countries names.
  • Flags list can be filtered quickly by typing country name for fast access.
  • OS 6 and Blackberry Torch compatibility.
  • Transparent smiles background on OS 6 and latest BBM.
  • Keep Field Visible mode - option to ensure that FC popup do not cover bottom text field.
  • Side Convenience key support for the fastest access experience

Fancy Characters sell for $1.99 in the CrackBerry App Store, but we have 50 copies to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PDT.

Fancy Characters 4.0 released - 50 copies up for grabs



I'd really like to win a copy of this. I work for a major retail outlet selling mobile phones. I could tell people about it when they come to buy a blackberry just as I already tell people about the crackberry website.

I love crackberry!

I'm constantly updating my BBM status and I use the different emotions all the time, this app saves alot of time for those people who use different characters/emotions

This is an awesome application!!! Fancy Characters improves any Blackberry!!!

Thanks for another great product.


Hey! already had good experiences with previous versions .... hopefully that exceeds our expectations! I want the new Fancy Chard!

I want that fancy .. I love the new things it brings and to name .. I love him and be one of the lucky winners :-)

Ok, I didn't really count all the comments, you have no doubt exceeded 50 comment posts, but just in case you haven't, I want a copy!!


i hav bought this app for my bb.... last update pay $0.99.... >.< this update need to pay again....T.T ... i hope i can get a free copy from here.... please pick me.. thank crackberry, thank fancy character team... :)

I use FC 3.3.1 now, I have a difficulties using it, especially when I want to type a sentence using FC. I have to click  and then insert FC menu and choose a character. When you want to use another character you have to star it over from the beginning.
Perhaps, on the next release of FC, we can just do it one to click  menu and then types many character, after finish it, and then exit.

I had this app and it worked great up until I downloaded the update now its saying my pin is not authorized. I like this app a lot so ill deffo try for a free copy this time and not spend another couple of dollars
