  • Inline emoji picker?
    It really would! I currently use Rocket to provide this functionality, which works great system-wide, but if it were integrated into Raycast natively, that would be so much better. - Source: Reddit / 3 days ago
  • I created a lightning-fast emoji-picker inspired by Slack, compatible with all macOS apps.
    What's the advantage on this over the OG Rocket? - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • A long list of problems with MacOS (and their potential solutions)
    Haha yeah that is stupid. I personally I binded Rocket to ;; and I can do this now. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Are there any good emoji picker popups or alternatives to the built-in one for Mac, that can let me insert an emoji multiple times or different emojis? One that doesn't doesn't close automatically?
    Rocket isn't exactly a "picker," but in my opinion, it's easier to use and works everywhere you'd want it to: It uses the text-replacement scheme you mentioned to trigger (Typing '::' or whatever you choose) it, but you don't have to remember the emojis: Once triggered, it provides a searchable UI to add any emoji you need. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Workflow incompatible?
    You can also try giving Rocket a try. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Is there an app to facilitate the use of emoji in text?
    Rocket is exactly that. Though it has some bugs. I paid for the upgraded version, which never worked, and the developer ignored my email. 🤷‍♂️. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • App LIST!!!
    Rocket (Free, but limited, need to pay for most of the features) Rocket is a free Mac app that makes typing emoji faster and easier using Slack-style shortcuts. Just start typing an emoji like :thumbsup: (👍) and Rocket will help auto-complete it – in any app! Plus, with Rocket Pro, you can add gifs, snippets, and symbols to your Rocket shortcuts. 🫢 -- It's how I added the emojis in the text .... - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Windows User Since Birth. Finally Tried a Macbook! Any tips?
    Rocket if you are in the apple ecosystem partially already with an iPhone, this is good for texting friends and family. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Text to emoji app (Like Rocket for OSX?)
    Is there a comparable app for windows to turn text to emojis, like: - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Turn off colon to add emoji
    I know Slack uses this feature but I don't see it anywhere in preferences for Bear or macOS system settings. Are you using an app like Rocket running in the background? I may be wrong but I'm hoping others can help clarify too. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • 🙃 Free emoji utility to trigger the emoji search on " : "? (like Notion, for example)
    I think you're looking for something like Rocket? - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Your best recommendations for apps, which are not broadly known.
    Rocket - You can search emojis with your specified prefix. Have setup mine so that its like discord, type :smile: for 😄 or choose from the dropdown. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Drop your favorite Mac apps!
    Rocket - slack/discord-like Emoji picker (type :emojiname to search for emoji) in all apps. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • Tell HN: Never Trust 'Lifetime' Licenses
    Rocket ($10) [0] is my current favorite emoji picker though sometimes it does drive me crazy (css properties in chrome dev tools and the like, I understand it's impossible to avoid, it still drives me crazy). Also there are emojis with spaces in the name but the picker just closes if you type a space so you have to add aliases to make them searchable. But overall it's a great tool and you can also use it to insert... - Source: Hacker News / 12 months ago
  • What are your favorite hidden gem Mac apps?
    Other great apps I always use is Rocket, Rectangle, PastePal, NextDNS (more like a service than app), OpenIn, Overkill. - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • Rocket equivalent for gifs?
    I am using Rocket everyday and it is excellent for finding emojis. Rocket has gif functionality too but you have to upload your of gifs to use them. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Very new to macOS here would be great if you can please tell me how to use it efficiently. Might be stupid so please don't judge as this is the first time I am looking at macOS, yes I have even seen it before...
    Theres a third party app called rocket that I would highly recommend. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • App to organize commands
    Why not use a text expander? Some of them offer auto completion and with a smart naming convention you could have a simple folder-like structure. I recently experimented with Rocket and it works nice (not only for emojis but code snippets too). - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • What are your favourite mac apps ?
    Rocket - Do you wish there were a system-wide Slack-like way to use emoji? The correct answer is yes. Yes, you do. The answer is Rocket. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • YSK - Windows and Mac both have integrated popover "emoji keyboards" that let you type emojis, emoticons, dongers, and unicode symbols
    There's a much better app on Mac called Rocket. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • I bought 300 emoji domain names from Kazakhstan and built an email service
    On macOS I use Rocket [0]. It's not perfect but it's the best I've used and it does make finding the emoji you want pretty easy. You can add custom alias/shortcuts for the emojis and you can also use it to insert images/gifs from the searcher. [0] - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
