    Dear fellow Ipad 2 users,

    I installed 5 different emoji apps (one of them is not a free app: 'Emoticons*').

    I install them and then do exactly what I should do:

    -I got to settings
    -General
    -Keyboard
    -International Keyboards
    -Add New Keyboard
    -And then, where I should be able to select the Emoji app, There is not such a name in the list of languages! (time after time...)

    What is going wrong? Cannot find at all what could be the case..

    Thank you very much for your help in advance! Really appreciated! :)

    Yeah, I found this too. A reboot seems to fix it, so make sure you turn off and back on again. Then go into settings > general > keyboard > add and the new emoji keyboard should be there to select.
    Make sure you turn your iPad off fully, not just sleep and wake. To turn it off, hold the power button for several seconds, then slide to turn off.

    Hope that helps.

    It worked out!
    Thank you so much for your fast reply!

    Never really switched off my iPad before, in the 2 weeks I'm in possession of it....I think it's better for battery life? Will do it from now on!

    Thanks again!

    Glad you got it fixed. Enjoy your emoji!

    But, don't get paranoid about turning your iPad off. It's useful once in a while, like you just found out, but IOS does not need to be restarted very often. If it suits you to turn the iPad off at night, by all means do it, but having it available with "instant on" from sleep mode is cool too.

    Don't worry about rebooting it unless you are having a problem, in which case it is usually a good thing to try before anything else.

    Emoji Does not show on Facebook


    I was able to download the emoji keyboard, and type emoticons in my Facebook status, but after typing it it, I do not see it on my status. Do you know what I am doing wrong?

    Emoji feature is part of IOS 5 upgrade as well as dictionary in e mail and notes.
