Emoji Support in AOSP MMS App for US Galaxy S III

A while back, we brought you a small XML fix to let your Android device see Emoji characters. Emoji is pretty popular, and many people use them—especially on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. Now there is a way to get Emoji support on the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S III.

XDA Senior Member amiblindyet has released an APK file that gives Sprint Galaxy S III owners Emoji support on the MMS app on AOSP-derived ROMs. This is not the first time such support has been given. However, now most common issues are fixed. This includes errors with portrait photos, force closes, and other miscellaneous errors. Some of the other features include:

[FIXED] MMS works
Increased MMS picture size
Dark theme with ICS blue to match AOKP, etc.
Emoji support

To install, simply download and flash the zip that amiblindyet has provided in custom recovery. It has been tested on AOKP Jelly Bean and CM10, and should work on any AOSP ROMs based on those. Given that the US variants of the Galaxy S III can share practically everything, expect this to work—or at least get ported—to the other three variants soon enough. In fact, this may even work on other devices running AOSP-derived Jelly Bean ROMs as well.

For additional details, check out the original thread.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people.

Google’s Prank Roundup for April Fools 2015

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
