Symbolay

Piotr Wilczynski
Symbolay is a keyboard and an app that lets you search emoji and other symbols by their name.

Symbols typed on a keyboard or copied from an app can be used in your messages, tweets, emails, text documents and everywhere else.

# A Keyboard
+ Custom keyboard with search - Just start typing query, then tap symbol in results. Text will be replaced with it.
+ Favorite & Recent - Tap and hold symbol in search results to fav it. It will be the first thing you see when you launch the keyboard.
+ Auto-next keyboard - I don't expect you to use Symbolay keyboard full time. I even make it as easy as possible to switch. Tap and hold "globe" button to activate *auto-next keyboard* mode. In this mode every time you type symbol you will be taken to the next keyboard automatically.
+ No full access - You shouldn't give full keyboard access to no-name developer like me. So I don't ask for it. But it has consequences: favorite and recent symbols in app and in keyboard are separate. Sorry.

# An App
+ Powerful search - You can search using not only symbol title, but also symbol itself, it's code and custom keywords like "emoji", "animal", "money" or "goat". Yes, there is more than one goat.
+ Favorite & Recent - Do you use some symbols often? Fav'em and they will be the first thing that you see when you launch the app. Recently used symbols can be also accessed easily.
+ List or Grid view - Grid for glances and quick access, list for full-information.
+ Close-up - Some symbols and emoji are pretty cool. You can see them in close-up.
+ Multiple encodings - You can copy symbol itself, use one of several encodings: HTML, Python, URL, or copy unicode hex value.
+ URL scheme - You can launch search from other apps.
+ Scratchpad - Little text field to collect multiple symbols. With easy copy and paste.
