If you find yourself regularly needing to find and enter special characters in different fonts, that task has now become easier in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, with Ergonis Software’s release of PopChar X 5.3. The new release supports colored symbols in the new Apple Color Emoji font; these can now be browsed and searched for, and inserted as characters in applications that know how to handle color fonts. Some additional tweaks, such as reduced CPU load in the background and better compatibility with Lion’s desktop spaces, round out the update. (€29.99 new, free update, 2.3 MB, release notes)
