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'm entering this contest and I'm playing the mega million jackpot... I wonder what my chances are at winning either?!?!

That would be quite a nice app, being able to put certain characters in SMS would be quite handy...not to mention the texts from friends with "How the heck did you get that symbol"

Truly hoping to win this :D We'll see - but yes this will def. add humor to my friends' lives .

Just brought the new Tour and am "tour-ing" around with it and I lOVE IT thus far, anything extra is just GREAT!

I use the Blackberry symbol already and give them to at least one person per week. I would love an app that gives me more.

Crackberry for life.

This looks like the coolest app to have wow did not know that this was available. It would be awesome to have this app..

nice one, really want to have it...specially when you have limited access to buy 3rd party application from your country region
