    Does anyone know if it is possible to access the built in Emoji characters in Android 4.0 and above. I'd like to be able to use these Emoji's on buttons and labels (or ImageView if neccessary).

    This would seem like a good way to brighten up an app without having to bloat an .APK with tons of icons.

    I know that Don Manfred has a library that uses Emoji's in Edittext but I don't need to do any editing and hoping I can do something native.

    Any help appreciated.

    Not only Edittext. There are TWO objects inside this wrapper. An Edittext and an Textview. The latter is like an LABEL.
    To add a Image (an emoji is nothing other) to an button you can use FancyButton or IconButton lib.
