What two App Store reviewers had to say about Character Pad:

"Dead easy to use and works a treat! Update with more characters some time........" - Soxcat

"Fast, simple, does one thing and does it seemlessly. No more having to write ½ as 1/2. Thank you, well worth the dollar!" - Auntmarge64

Please Note: Characters will be readable from any iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Mac and most PCs. Some special characters may appear as question marks (?) or squares for some recipients of text messages whom use non-iPhone mobiles.

keeps on crashing :/

i came from the character pad website and this app has been really helpful. but lately it’s been crashing each time I open the app. I have an iPhone XR and I haven’t updated to version 13.3 yet so idk if that’s the issue, but it’s been crashing for a while and idk why.

Thank you! Very useful!

Thank you for this very useful little app. I tried my hardest to figure out how to type a superscript 2 in an online comment, all to no avail. Online searching likewise provided no solution. Then one particular website directed me to this app. Problem solved!
