Characters makes it easy for designers and developers to access special characters right from the OS X Menu Bar. They are easily found and copied to your clipboard, either as html code or as the character itself.

For example, if you need the copyright symbol, just type "copy" into the search bar and the app finds the character you're looking for. With one click you can copy it to your clipboard. The app knows which characters you use the most and those will always stay at the top, so you can access them easily.

Available character sets:
- Arrows
- Block elements
- Currencies
- Cyrillic
- Digits
- Dingbats
- Geometric shapes
- Greek
- Latin
- Latin Extended-A
- Letter-like
- Math
- Parentheses
- Pictographs
- Pictographs
- Punctuation

You can purchase Characters from the App Store for $4.99.
