QuickEmoji: Jailbreak Tweak Allows You To Access Emoji Icons From Default iOS Keyboard

If you use Emoji icons frequently while texting etc. then you will probably like QuickEmoji – a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to access the Emoji icons or emoticons from the default iOS keyboard so you don’t have to switch to the Emoji keyboard.

Since the . , ? ! ‘ keys are available when you tap on the Number key 123 on the iOS keyboard as well as when you tap on the Symbol key #+=, the hack replaces the redundant keys in the Symbol section of the default iOS keyboard with emoticons, thus making good use of the space available on the iOS keyboard.

You can access more emoticons by tapping and holding the Emoji icons. There are no options to configure in the Settings app, all you need to do is install the jailbreak tweak from Cydia and it will replace the . , ? ! ‘ keys in the Symbol section of the iOS keyboard with emoticons as you can see in the screenshots below:

As you can see keys . , ? ! ‘ are available in the both the sections

Tap and hold on an emoticons to access more emoticons

QuickEmoji is compatible with the following keyboard layouts:

QWERTY
AZERTY
QWERTZ
HEBREW

QuickEmoji is compatible with iOS 6. It is available on Cydia for free. It seems like a more intuitive way to access emoticons on the iOS device rather than switching back and forth between the default iOS keyboard and the Emoji keyboard.

    Well, it’s still the same number of taps away, isn’t it ?

      Yeah, that’s why we didn’t say it was quicker.

    What a waste of time. Pointless tweaks like this is why I stopped using jailbreaks, I bet its slightly unstable and runs the battery down a little quicker
