If you are on Twitter, you most likely read about the death of Steve Jobs in the numerous tweets that seemed to take over the service for hours. You may have also noticed, or have even taken part in, sending a tweet with nothing more than an Apple logo icon, as a miniature tribute to the greatest visionary of our time.
Read on to find out how to get the Apple logo icon on your iOS device, as well as some other special characters that iOS and Emoji don't provide.
Tap on either the + symbol (if you aren't on iOS 5) or the middle icon on the bottom bar, pointed out with the arrow above.
Select "Add to Home Screen."
Give the Web app a name, or leave it as is. Press "Add" once you are finished. Your iOS device will then take you to your home screen, and you will see a new icon with the app name you filled in. Tap on it to open the app.
Select the icon or special character you would like to use by tapping and holding on the icon until the "Copy" dialog shows up. Tap on it. Now you can paste the icon into any text field on your iOS device.
If you would like to copy multiple icons at once, paste each one into the scratch board at the top of the app and then copy all of them once you are done.
