To all my designers and developers out there, here’s a small Mac app to add to your arsenal of tools. Characters is a small but neat Mac app which sits in the taskbar of your Mac. It enables you to quickly find special characters which are usually hidden away or require you to press multiple buttons to acquire.
All you do is click on the icon in the taskbar and a small tab drops down giving you a huge list of special characters. You just click on a character and it copies it directly to your clipboard.
It also has a very neat designer and developer mode. In design mode it simply copies the character to your clipboard, but in developer mode it copies it as html so you can apply it into coding.
Also be sure to check out their website, it’s pretty awesome. The designer guys out there will appreciate it – getcharacters.com
