You can use wingdings and emoji icons to customize iOS folder labels, all you need to do is copy and paste a wingding or emoji icon into the folder label when you are naming the folder.

In the above screenshot, wingdings are used in the folder labels, and below you can see a folder name with a camera emoji icon shown:

You will obviously need folder support to be able to do this, so be sure to have iOS 4 or later installed on your device, iPad owners will need to get the iOS 4.2 download if you haven’t already (or later versions work too).

Here’s a handful of wingdings to get started:

    Really awesome tip! I just figured, that you can also add the famous  to your folder names (shift alt + ).

    You can also add the emoji keyboard in Settings/General/Keyboard/International Keyboards/ hit add new keyboard, then select Emoji, you’ll now have a world icon to the left of the keyboard, hit it once or twice and you’ll see the emoji icons. You can use them in folder names, text messages or anywhere you use the keyboard for input. Have fun.

  5. Shawn says:

    No need to jailbreak. You can download the Emoji Free app from the App Store, then reboot your phone and launch the app. It will add the Emoji keyboard to your International Keyboard settings.

      App is a con. Already on iOS. Do this: Settings, General, International, Keyboards, Add New Keyboard, Emoji. No App Needed*

      *iOS 5 needed

      If you don’t have iOS 5 here are some emoji:

      Rendering of the site causes some emoji to not display correctly but when pasted into iOS it is in color. On computers except OSX Lion they will not display at all.

  6. [...] of communication, you can so some fun tricks with Emoji, like adding the icons to iOS folder names (or on the Mac too) to customize the appearance of the homescreen. [...]
