Grindr – how to get smiley faces in profile, and other tips


I have done a couple of blog posts on Grindr, the iPhone app that has been euphemistically described as Dating for Gays (I say hook ups, but that’s just me).  I find it amusing that Israeli publication Haaretz has the headline New iPhone application lets gay Israelis look for love while on the move. Love?  Hmmm, call me cynical (or maybe just call me realistic) but I don’t think it’s love anyone will find (nor are they looking for it if they are using Grindr).

Emoji Free! for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

iPhone free smileys (emoji) – easy peasy


Everyone with an iPhone (probably) knows that you add in Emojis (smiley face icons etc) to the iPhone for 99c via various apps.

Almost a year ago I did a post about how to get emojis for free on the iPhone. Now that I have my new iPhone 4 to play with, I went to follow my own instructions on how to do this for the iPhone but found that the app required for step one has gone AWOL.

So a quick Google search and I found that there is now a MUCH easier way, and best of all it’s FREE!

Just go to the app store – search for Emoji Free (if there is more than one, choose the one with 4 images, one being a monkey in the icon).  Install it, run it, and follow the instructions on screen.  Easy peasy.

Black and White Version: Installing Emoji icons for free on the iPhone just got easier.
