How To: Get Special Characters and Symbols on your iPhone or iPad with Glyphboard

GlyphboardHere’s a great web app from Neven Mrgan. It’s called Glyphboard and it allows you to copy and paste cool glyphs such as , ☂, ☺, ✔, and ♫ on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Use Glyphboard for email, tweets, text messages… any time you want to spice things up with a bit of ‘character.’

To install the web app, go to Glyphboard 2.0 in Mobile Safari, click the bookmark arrow at the bottom, then “Add to home screen.” Glyphboard will now show up as a web app with the command icon (⌘). To use Glyphboard, simply tap and hold the desired character to copy and paste into your email, text, or tweet. If you want more than one glyph, you can use the scratchboard area to paste multiple characters then select all when finished.

Get Glyphboard to add a little character to your messages.
