Fancy Characters

*Update* - We now have 300 free copies to give away!

If you remember way back (almost a year ago) we first heard about how to get cool custom text characters into BBM, emails and SMS. There we endless threads about "character swapping" and everyone was getting in on the action. Sergey just let me know about an app that makes all of this much easier. Fancy Characters allows you to put any of these custom characters in your emails, SMS, BBM and more with just a few clicks.The app adds in a menu item so you can drop a cool character into almost any text field on your device. Fancy Characters is available in the CrackBerry App Store for only $0.99

Contest: We have 200 300 free copies of Fancy Characters to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to be entered. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment - mulitple entries won't count.

New App Fancy Characters Adds Custom Characters to Your Messages - 200 Copies to Give Away!



I've wanted to do this for so long but never even looked into if there was an application to add more characters.

i think this app is very cool ive seen so many of my bb users use this and they would never tell me where they got these text characters.i find this very cool now i can be like everyone else :-)i find the blackberry the coolest phone out right now i love my blackberry

That is a nice app... It'd be useful for entering European characters that don't show up by holding your finger over the respective letters.

With this application Pinky I can finally reveal my plan of world dominance.

Seriously thank you for supporting our community.

I would love to have a chance to win this application that is the one thing I miss about a dumbphone is the cool icon and character that where built right into the phone.

Would love a free copy please. :D
MY question is, will they show up for people not with the same app, and not even on blackberries, sms-wise? Because I seem to be having trouble with that.

OMG! I need this, this would be the perfect. I need to have custom characters in your emails, SMS, my groovy BBM 5.
