Using Smileys ("Emoji") in Textie on iOS 4 and earlier

(NOTE: iOS 5 emoji are not compatible with iOS 3 and 4 emoji; Apple is moving to a new standard.)

Did you know there is an awesome set of smiley faces and other emoji built into every iOS device? If you want to use them in Textie, you just need to enable the Emoji keyboard.

One of the easiest ways to do this is to download a free app called "Awesome Emoji" and follow its simple on-screen instructions. Not only will you then be able to use emoji in Textie, but in every other app as well!

First, install "AWESOME EMOJI". It gives you a switch to unlock the hidden Emoji keyboard.
