How to add emoticons/emoji to folder names in Android
posted by Daniel P. / May 30, 2014, 6:10 AM
You are no doubt familiar with the fact that you can change the folder names at will by tapping on the folder, and then on its title at the bottom. Your on-screen keyboard will then pop up, and you will be able to change the default name of the folder. Did you know, however, that you can also use emoji for the folder titles?
Yep, that's right - those funny (or sad ,or ironic) pictograms dubbed emoticons that we are so used to employing during our endless chat sessions, can be used to signify your attitude towards the content of the newly-created, or renamed app folder. Simply tap on the folder, then on its name below, then use your stock keyboard emoji, and Android will display them together with the folder name. Alternatively, you can only use the emoji as a name, no harm, no foul. Check out the process, visualized in the slideshow on the right.

Did this with my old iPod Touch. Would actually be quite a weird if you couldn't put emoticons/emojis on folder text.

Acctually it will be weird if those will be acctual folder names - there is no OS at this moment (mobile or desktop), suporting such glyphs for an inode (filename or folder). But these are not acctual "folders", isn't it? :D
