Android 4.2 Emoji Keyboard

We recently reported on the various Android 4.2 dumps, and the bundled goodies hidden within. One of the most popular of these would be the Android 4.2 keyboard, with it’s swiping gestures.

XDA Senior Member blindndumb has done more digging within the dumps, and has come across another keyboard that was hidden and hasn’t yet been posted. The keyboard in question is in fact an Emoji keyboard.

We’ve covered Emoji characters in past articles. They are an extensive set of icons, most commonly used by iPhone users and on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

The keyboard is two tone black and white, and contains a large number of Emoji characters. It also has the option to switch between 10-key and QWERTY layouts.

One drawback that you should be aware of when using this keyboard, is that the swiping gestures don’t work.

If you want to give the Emoji keyboard a try, check out blindndumb’s post.

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
