Simbol for iPhone

Every now and then, I need to insert some unicode characters into something I’m writing — for example,  , ★ , ♫, ™, etc. Typically, I either use CopyPasteCharacter (along with its companion iOS app) or a custom set of TextExpander snippets to get the job done. But today, there is a new, free app for this purpose: Simbol for iPhone.

Simbol allows you to search through a list of unicode characters, select one, then either copy the character itself or its HTML code to your clipboard, ready for pasting elsewhere. It looks right at home on iOS 7, and it’s pretty quick, too. It’s way better than searching the web for a symbol every time you need one.
