Special Characters

Android offers two basic methods to add special characters to your text:

Standard Access

For punctuation and symbols, use the default function by first tapping the ?123 key, and then optionally tap ~[<.

Tap and Hold

Android’s on-screen keyboard contains additional options for some keys if you tap-and-hold them, for example tap-and-hold U to get access to ü and other diacritics. This also works for some punctuation keys, such as the currency symbol showing other currencies.
