however as a large portion of our uses create on iPhone 5 screen resolutions, I felt it was necessary to simplify and iterated the UX so that users will be able to see more symbols at first glance without having to go through different menus and screens.symbol picker

Since releasing the new symbol picker we have received a huge amount of feedback from our users, informing us how it is enabling them to create a lost faster on-the-go.
