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



Thats RiiiGHHHT... And I'll bi*#@*& slap my ho's when I get some if they dont text me w/ Fancy's inserted. BB Bold 9650 W/Fancy Character is soooo Bling, its fly. Image is critical,

Though u dont have issue shipping this to india.. just checking if neone from India wins on crackberry ;)

Ok, not really but I HAVE had a really crappy day! In fact, I bought a stupid Samsung Captivate, thinking I could, or should, live without my beloved BB. But, returned it within an hour and am now the proud owner of a Torch! WoooHooo! I'm home baby!
Anyways, would LOVE to have a free copy - did I miss the deadline? Bummer - just adding to the day....

Been happily using the previous version of fancy character and my friends are jealous because they don't have this app. Wondering what suprises will I get in this latest update of fancy character 4.
Please pick me as one of your winners....
