    Just a little heads up, now emojis are available in the iMessage app. Pretty cool!
    I don't think they were available in Mountain Lion.
    Nice considering they come standard in the iPhone too.
    Didn't see a posting about it yet so forgive me if this is a re-post!

    I thought I remember them there in ML as well, it was just buried and hard to get too before.

    They were there, but if you went to Twitter.com or Instagram on your Mac and read any tweets or posts with emoji's you would just see blank squares on ML. Makes no sense you could write them, then not even see it on your own tweet. :confused: With Mavericks you can view them anywhere.

    oh, I see, click on the smile face in Messages app and there they are...I was looking in System Preferences, Keyboard...Languages, etc., not finding it, :rolleyes:

    Yeah, they were not there before, just a few smiley's, (which is why I didn't look there first) so this is new for Mavericks, nice to have since before we got just empty boxes for most emoji.

    Nice to know. I don't use instagram, FB, twitter, or more social media applications (have linked-in and that is it, got rid of the rest), so I always used and saw them in ML with messages. Nice to know it is more universal now. Wish they would bring them to Adium next.
