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

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



These characters are great for personalizing bbm's or for adding to your name. I would love to get a free copy.

This is awesome programs that will help me to input symbols faster on my messages. Great.. Go...Crackberry
A copy please....:-)

Since there is no trial for this, and liked the idea, I purchased this for my 8900 running, 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....


Well I just purchased it for my Bold, can not get it to work. Everthing i press while texting it shows "?". This is after a reset, will try and figure it out. Any suggestions?

..well a bit. One of the things I "miss" about the iPhone is it's abilty to spice up emails with pasted HTML and even texts with Emoji...This bridges the gap slightly. Just my 2C. -M@

Sign me up! I love having the latest greatest for my Storm and this seems like something that would be fun to play with!

I would love to win this app because i really enjoy doing fancy characters on my emails and sms's. I think it would be a really cool app to have!!!

I need this! If I don't win one I'll get it anyway. (Does this automatically exclude me from the drawing?) 8)

right now I have a bunch of symbols in my memo pad and copy past them, this would make things easier as it takes about 74 attempts to highlight, copy, bb button to switch app, paste. now you can insert the symbol right there? AWESOME.... hopefully it has all the same ones.

Awesome programs like this allow you to be very creative in BBM. its awesome especially when ur a bbm freak like most of us lol.

great...!!! just what I needed for those boring sms.. sometimes just plain black letter gets a little boring.. specially if you text in other languages....

Looks like an awesome app would like to thank those who have taken time to create these apps keep up the great job
