Fancy Characters actually updated not once, but twice the last few days. Fancy Characters is a really neat program by Sergey Demyanov and it’s available in the BlackBerry Sync Store. Back in the day, if you wanted to use certain icons or symbols that weren’t available, there were a few BlackBerry users who had an assortment of them and you had to use copy and paste in AutoText to be able to use them. But not any more. Check it out…
What the app does is allow you to place fancy characters in EMAIL, SMS (GSM only), IM and PIN messages and status. I really like having the access to all the different flags, characters, and symbols that will get reactions from your friends.
- About 300 Colored Smiles and over 200 flags for BlackBerry® Messenger 5.0
- Integrates to any application
- All supported Unicode symbols and characters
- Several categorized tabs for easy characters access
- Facebook char icons available
So what is new with Fancy Characters?
- Icons from BBM 6.0 applied (larger and clearer)
- Added support of BBM from OS 6.1 and BBM 6.0
- Small UI Changes
The update is recommended for those who upgraded to BBM v6.0 from the Beta Zone or from a leaked build as previous versions didn’t work with it. Fancy Characters is available for $1.99 in the BlackBerry Sync Store, or if you’re upgrading, any upgrade from v4.0 is free, all previous versions may have a small upgrade fee.
Upgrading your app is easy. Go to the BlackBerry Sync Store, sign in, go to My Apps, and go to Fancy Characters and click download.
