Android Special Characters Shortcuts

Monday, November 10th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Android, Quick Tips

Need a special character on your Android phone or tablet keyboard? Maybe an é or a symbol? It couldn’t be simpler to find. Just press and hold the letter that needs the accent mark, tilde or other special character. Your options will appear and you can choose what you need by just tapping it.

It’s also useful when you need to use a symbol associated with a particular letter, such as the Paragraph symbol and P or the $ sign and S.

    This is not always true with the English language keyboard layout. In order to have access to many of these characters, I have had to install both Portuguese and English language keyboards.

    This is a great tip! Please continue to provide this information.

    That was great information! I hope you will do an article now concerning the little numbers on the letter keys and how to avoid typing a number instead of a letter. I really have trouble with this. It is especially exasperating when trying to type a password and it throws in an unwanted number that you can’t see.
