iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch Upgrade: The Apple iOS Built-In Emoji Keyboard – Free – Score: 3 IV’s
What is the the Emoji Keyboard?
emoji is a specialized set of emoticons that you can insert into iMessages, emails, etc. The iOS offers several hundred unique emoji images that you can access via the emoji Keyboard. Your text messages won’t know wPlease note you can only upgrade to this special keyboard if your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch has been upgraded to iOS 5 or later.
What did you like about it?
Apple added over 200 new features to the current iOS (5.0). While most of them are obvious there are quite a few that are hidden and require some digging around. One of my favorite additions to the new software is the built in emoji keyboard, aka emoticons, aka smiley faces. Now theres no need to install an additional app.
What didn’t you like?
After enabling the new keyboard a little world icon will appear on the keyboard next to the space bar when you want to access the Emoticons. If you have an iPhone 4S with Siri turned on the spacebar is much smaller than what you might be use to and will take a little time to adjust when typing.
How do I upgrade to the new Emoji Keyboard?
To turn on the emoji keyboard go to Settings > General > Keyboard > International keyboard > Add New… > Choose emoji from the list. It’s as easy as that! Once emoji has been enabled, you can access it by tapping the globe icon to the right of the space bar.
