Doesn’t include all Unicode blocks
For example, Linear B Syllabary (𐀒𐀓𐀄𐀅𐀥𐀳𐀢𐀓𐀇). I’m glad I didn’t pay for the Pro version.
Amended based on feedback from the developer. I’ve purchased the Pro version and look forward to using it. I upped the rating for this one to four stars; if you are familiar with Unicode, it’s not especially useful, and if you’re not, it would be hard to know what to do with it. It seems like the Pro version has had a lot of recent improvements; it might be worthwhile for the developer to use it as the basis for a new function-limited free version.

Pro version includes all unicode blocks
Great, but likely NOT what you want!
This is NOT the Unicode app that let's you put the symbols into things. It's a VERY large collection of the Unicode charset. Think of it as a reference book. You youngsters may not believe this, but there are actual printed books of this! If you want to really know what Unicode is, check Wikipedia. I give this app 5 stars because it is what it is. As I write this there are no reviews. I'd imagine soon there will be 1000 ones saying, "it's broke!" Just trying to head that off.
Purchased the app to use specifically with Samantha font because it has TONS of glyphs. Not only can I not figure out how to access the glyphs (even though I selected the font), I cannot find any online tutorials for the app or a way to contact support. I even went to the developer website hoping to gleam more insight. If I could find the help I needed, I would update my review; but as of right now it feels like $5 wasted.
