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.

Good Night Crackberry Nation

Since there is no trial for this, and liked the idea, I purchased this for my 8900 running 4.6.1.231, but it does not work at all.

After installing, setting all permissions to allow, applying a valid/accepted activation code, several uninstalls/reinstalls, and several battery pulls, it does not work.

I only get question marks (?) in place of the characters... see....

????????????????????

MADBRADNYC

Just found out from deveoper that you must change SMS options from 7bit to UCS2 encoding for it to work.
