unicodr and Unicode Keyboard

Have you ever needed to type just one Unicode character that isn't available on the standard iOS keyboard? Do you end up going to Google just to search for a character to paste into another app? Now you can have conveniently categorized Unicode characters right at your fingertips in a custom keyboard, and if what you need isn't there, just search for it using the search pane instead! Try searching by keyword or by hexadecimal code point.
