Easy way to find emojis?

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

I am using a bluetooth keyboard and can also use the touch screen kayboards. I know there is an easy way to do this in messages but is there an easy way to find emojis in other apps? Like if I want to write something in my diary wich is a text field and I want to put for example the poop emoji, wich is what I use for a lot of things, is there a quick way for me to find it?

I sure hope there's an easy way. My own work around is to copy and paste my favorite symbols to a document file and then (later) go to that file to copy and paste it into wherever I want whenever I want. It cuts down on spending time hunting for the symbol among all those other symbols.

Hi. As long as you have the emoji keyboard enabled, it should be selected right beside the sift, under on the bottom row. There are five categories, frequently used is the one farthest left. try seeing if the poop emoji is in there.

I have heard to work in the frequently used section to be able to find those I prefer. This works very well for me. I have my favourites on there and there is lots of space. I am using a bluetooth keyboard but all I actually do is not turning off quicknav, switching keyboard with the key to the bottom left of my keyboard, then use the screen to choose my emoji wich goes rather fast. It works for me.

Just type a word for example dog, then find the letter q with your finger and swipe left to find emojis related to that word.

Is that autocorrect or where do I turn it on?

I have decided to go with the frequently used section. I just have a question. Do they move when I use them and in that case, where?

For some reason I don’t get any predictions at all. Sometimes it starts to read and then it goes away. Wierd.

The more you use the particular frequent emogis, it bubbles to the top of the list.

You can download an Emoji Keyboard App from the App Store. Another possibility is that you copy the emoji and then paste it again. So I would do that - maybe there are other possibilities
