Type the characters Emoji faster with "Down Functions"

Emoji characters are a great way to have conversations more expressive and put some fun in messaging, but having to touch the globe icon in the iOS virtual keyboard to select these characters is not exactly fast. It is even more cumbersome if you are using an external keyboard on the iPad, and you have to release the keyboard and touch screen to put the Emoji. But this need not be so, since it is possible to write the Emoji characters incredibly fast by using shortcuts for text replacement, which basically convert a sequence in a normal keyboard Emoji icon.

To properly set the Emoji text replacements, you must have enabled the Emoji keyboard support for adding it to the list of keyboards for iOS. If you already have this done You can skip this part, but here's how:

  • Go to Settings> General> Keyboard
  • Select "Add New Keyboard" and select "Emoji"

Now you have it. With this keyboard support enabled Emoji characters will have already accessible through the small globe icon located on the bottom of the virtual keyboard, and you can proceed to create replacements.

Configuring text replacements Emoji icons

With the support Emoji enabled and we can begin to configure text substitutions icons like this:

  • Open "Settings", go to "General" and then "Keyboard"
  • Go down the screen keyboard until you see the "Create shortcut ..."
  • Play along to "Speech" and inserts here Emoji
  • Play along to "Shortcut" and enter the text you want to convert Emoji

You can add shortcuts to all Emoji you want. Once satisfied, you can try it on any iOS app that allows text input (Notes, Mail, Messages, etc.). Just enter the application and try to write some of the shortcuts you've set, you will see that become instantly on the appropriate icon Emoji.

For example, the common emoticon ":]" may automatically become  and so on.

To type Emoji even faster, you can skip the special characters keyboard shortcuts and configure using the QWERTY keyboard only primary. For example, you can establish that if you write "xPPP" becomes    well be faster, since you will not have to change the keyboard to type and commas, parentheses and other common elements emoticons.

Another advantage of this approach is that replacements for Emoji icons are suggestions of immediate self-correction, so that in the last example of "xPPP" you could write it as "CPPP", or something similar, and automatically recognize the intention to replace Emoji and I would suggest, allowing just press space to self-correct when we are looking Emoji emoticon.
