Jingu Smileys FAQ
What is AutoText?With Jingu Smileys AutoText feature, you no longer need to open up your Smiley application to paste your favorite Smiley.
AutoText is designed to replace specific text that you type with preloaded AutoText entries. If you type text that can be replaced with an AutoText entry, the text changes after you press the Space key. In Jingu Smileys, I can set an AutoText entry for any Smiley, Flag, Text or Emoji Art and easily use them in my BBM chats afterwards.
I deleted Jingu Smileys, but still cannot remove my AutoText?
Go into your BlackBerry Homescreen and select options->typing and language->word substitution and search for your word and delete the entry. To learn more about BlackBerry Autotext click here:
