Emojis on Android?

Recommended Posts

Glassed Silver    940

Heya guys!

My friend has an Android based Smartphone, don't know the version, but it's an LG.

She does seem to have some Emoji on her device (stock/3rd party? idk) that look just like the iOS versions, however she can't receive even those same Emojis from my iPhone.

We'd like to be able to send each other, possibly all 600+ emoji, so her device must probably get a font installed that will work with the unicode characters (or which ever Apple Emoji are registered in) that iOS uses.

We want to send and receive as native text, so no pictures, as this shall work via SMS. :3

I'm asking this here, because I know that some of those kinds of programs sometimes come with nagware, spyware and other unwanted code, so it'd be sweet to get personal recommendations from my trusted Neowin friends! :)

Thanks in advance!

If your friend has a 4.0+ device, I wouldn't worry about the nag adverts with those programs. You can block those starting in ICS. Otherwise to answer your question, most of the time those type of apps are culprit.

You can also use this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.brosmike.airpushdetector&hl=en after you install an app to see if it is culprit.

Thank you, now I only need to know an app that will supply us with the needed font set. :)

wow, thanks, that's a step forward for sure. :)

Limitation:

This app is not able to make Android to display the emoji.

If you want to see the emoji icon on your device, please follow the steps below to replace the font.

1. you need to have a rooted device

[...]

Her device isn't rooted though I guess and I'm not sure whether she's comfortable doing it/getting it done by someone else.

Hmmm, but thanks so far already. This would be an input method, now on to maybe an alternative way to get the font installed, if somehow possible sans rooting?

Just have her go out and get rooted and add the app. Everytime I go to the thailand I have my iphone updated with apps and its cheap.

What are the opinions on this?

For that you need to install (almost) the whole line of GO apps, from launcher to keyboard, in order to use it.

I would suggest you the JellyBean 4.2 native emoji keyboard here:

She explicitly wants the iPhone ones.

She even has some of them already on her phone, but they don't work between our devices.

She's really into the Apple emoji set and wants that badly and I'd love to do her the favor of finding a way for her to get them ^^

And fair enough on the GO apps part, that's a shame... :/

did you look at the one I posted? it costs $2 but it does exactly what you want without having to install a dozen different things

Probably the best bet yea...

This will replace her stock SMS app right?

Will it import the previous messages?

I'm prety sure past the basic emoji's, the other wouldn't be cross-platform.
