I have been trying to figure out how to install and use the Emoji. I could not find a solution here. I even tried using a few apps from the Play Store but it didn't work at all. Also, I would like to view and read the Emoji's all over the phone wherever it's possible.
I am using HTC One and currently running on 4.2.2 Jellybean.
I couldn't find any emoji add-ons to the Sense keyboard, however the one I posted is a different keyboard that is only for emoji, so you'll have to switch back and forth between this and the Sense keyboard.
Wait.. I came across this thread and it seems as though emoji is natively supported by the HTC One. Which version of 4.2.2 are you running? Is it a Google Edition/AOSP ROM or a Sense-based one?
You should try "Smart Keyboard" I use it and in the languages section of the settings it allows you to add emoji. I use the trial appt which lets you use all the features but has a nag screen. The only thing I've found is that its not as accurate as swiftkey. Here are some examples.
They come out as the android versions but to iPhone users it'll show up as iOS versions.
Make sure you download the Emoji app first. Go to a blank text and pull up the keyboard. A little keyboard should come up at the top of your phone on the drop down menu. Click on that and select SET UP INPUT METHODS and turn your Emoji Keyboard selection on. Go back to your blank text and select that same little keyboard again and select Emoji keyboard making the selection bubble next to it blue. DONE!!
Nabooy, did you ever get a fix to this problem? Because I am experiencing the same thing. I've downloaded the keyboards, and everything.. I can include them in messages but when receiving messages nothing is translating and I get the ? in the box.
Just hold down the button that you use for obtaining the numeric keypad..When you hold it for two seconds an emoji icon will appear...now release the button..(you can go back to the qwerty keyboard by pressing the same button once....)
Thank you Jazir!
As soon as I read your post about how to get the emoji keypad I knew you were right. I have looked for the info for at least 2 months on and off unsucessfully and I really appreciate your help. People like you who know what they are talking about are a pleasure to discover. So many times people who don't have an answer waste my time by leading me to their worthless comments. (i.e. Well, I don't really know the answer, but....) I wonder what people like that get out of it. Eva
