    Saw somebody say that since 5.1.1 there are new emoji?

    Right or wrong?

    There's a new version in the App Store but not in 5.1.1 itself.

    I believe he's talking about the built in characters, which you can input anywhere by enabling the Emoji keyboard.

    ^ the first, third, forth, and sixth Emoji in that list show up as missing character boxes on my iDevices. (both of which are running 5.1.1).

    Settings - General - Keyboard - International Keyboards - Add New Keyboard...
    Emoji

    Once completed Next to the space bar there is a world icon to switch between your keyboards.

    I think the OP is right - as far as I can tell, there are quite a few new stock emoji... or at least, so it seems. Maybe I didn't swipe the screens enough before to realize how many there are, but they're a lot of fun to add. Too bad they only transmit to other iDevices.

    Definitely no more new ones. You can also send them to WP7 phones.

    I know and I answered the OP, there isn't in 5.1.1, only the standard emoji.But there is a new version with more icons in the App store. That's what I gather he has heard about.

    What's the name of this app? Does it integrate the new emoji into the keyboard or do you have to copy and paste them?

    I'd be interested in the name of the emoji app, too... there sure are a bunch of them out there and it seems most have many drawbacks.

    I'm also wondering what the working app name is. The new ones don't show up in my current emoji setup.

    does anyone notice that there's a bug for emoji?
    sometimes when switching to the emoji keyboard, all of them disappear
    while switching back again, it' returns to normal

    Thats because there isn't any new Emoji in the standard current Emoji keyboard, there is how ever a new version in Cydia, if your jailbroke that is.

    I just did a search in the app store for emoji 2 and there are now emoji apps that will enable the new emoji in 5.1but you have to pay for them.

    I don't understand why they aren't enabled automatically when we updated to 5.1?

    Previously(before iOS 5) Emoji had to be enabled via another App. Now you just have to enable it as an additional keyboard.
    Check out this link & see under 'Keyboard'-
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IOS_version_history#Version_history:_portable_iOS_devices

    There are new variants (May 2012 onwards) of Emoji available on the App Store,but mainly for inserting graphic pictures & graphic art into messages.

    Hi!

    Since iOS 5.1 there are hundreds of new Emojis implemented in iOS. If someone sends you a message including some new Emojis, your iPhone will display them correctly.

    But this new Emojis are not implemented in the standard Emoji keyboard. So you will need an App for that.

    For example the Emoji 2 Keyboard - New Emojis App.

    I have seen many emoji apps with new images, but it's not free. Like it how it's added in iOS 5.
