How to personalize lists in Reminders with emojis and symbols

Emojis in Reminders Lists iPad

With iOS 13, Apple made many improvements to Reminders including the ability to personalize lists. This allowed users to add colored icons to make lists easier to spot and organize. So with iOS 14, iPadOS 14, and even macOS Big Sur, Apple made another improvement to the appearance options for Reminders.

No longer are you limited to the 60 or so icons provided for your lists. You can select from additional symbols as well as any emoji on your keyboard. Here are your latest options for personalizing lists in Reminders with emojis and symbols on iOS and Mac.

Nita complements the Status Bar with an Emoji-driven weather display

Your iPhone’s Status Bar is supposed to be an all-in-one hub for pertinent information including battery level, signal strength, and other important indicators. That said, wouldn’t it be kind of nice if it included a brief tidbit about the weather too?

Those in agreement with the aforementioned sentiment will almost certainly want to take a moment out of their busy lives to check out a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Nita by iOS developer Litten. As depicted in the screenshot example above, Nita depicts the current weather conditions outside with the help of a simple Emoji.

Shortmoji is the Swiss Army Knife keyboard that iOS never had

Those who do lot of typing on their iPhones, have a fairly sound argument for having dedicated text-editing buttons on your handset’s keyboard interface; likewise, those who do a lot of texting, may want easier access to Emojis. But what about those who do a lot of both?

For those stuck in the latter case, Shortmoji is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer MiRO that combines the best of both worlds for avid typists and texters who do a lot of both on the same device.

EmojiPicker brings a macOS-inspired Emoji interface to the iPad

It’s not very often that we see dedicated jailbreak tweaks for the iPad platform, and that’s one of the reasons why we’re particularly excited to show you a new and free release called EmojiPicker by iOS developer Gui Rambo.

As you might’ve ascertained already from the tweak’s rather telling name, EmojiPicker is intended to augment the Emoji-picking interface in iPadOS for whenever you need access to Emojis while typing in various apps.
