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 am DYING to have something like this!! I'm sick of copying symbols, add to memo, and having to go there anytime I want to use one. Gimmeee please...!!

I just got my first cell phone in 12yrs. This blackberry is the coolest damn thing on earth. I think it would be cool to win this fancy character software. Good luck to all!

can't imagine a real use for this but then again i do love rot13 and other machinations of text on the internet. would be fun to try out and learn its potential

O.k. Now this is a really cool app! I can think of dozens of times I could have used this! I would love a copy for free!

Been doing copy and pasting from a memo containing these symbols, now this app would make it easier!

this one of best app's out there.
gives you a lot of options to making your text fancy. the BEST is how someone is shown on BBM!

some entertainment. Bored mom at home with twins all day!!! Please feel sorry for me and entertain me with some fancy new characters!!! Pretty Please! :-)

Hope can get one copy,
It seem really nice and Very easy, If we want to put icon for msg, bbm, and IM


I was just going to buy it for a dollar, but didnt find it in app world? Oh well if i win it i guess i would have saved myself a dollar~~

would love to have this have been using auto text for awhile but only a select few this would let me use all of them
