Have you ever been frustrated that the whole Unicode repertoire is there, but you don't have any convenient way to use it? How much time did you waste searching for the right character, digging through large tables or searching the web? Do you use a Unicode ‘palette’ you copy characters from? Or you just gave up and write everything in words, where attaching a non-plaintext is inappropriate? No more!

uniqoda allows you to enter any Unicode character with just a few keystrokes, without taking your hands off the keyboard. The search is done by name, so you don't need to remember any hex-values.

Supported OS: Windows 7 and later.
