EmotiPad II lets you easily dress up your e-mails and chats with emoticons, but it only worked with Outlook Express in our tests.
EmotiPad II's tabbed interface organizes its preloaded set of emoticons into categories, which are presented in a simple tree listing in the Manager tab. It can be hard to view all categories at once, however, because the program's window can't be resized. You can easily add or delete emoticons and categories, which makes it easy to manage your collection. We liked the ability to preview images in the Browser tab and the simple drag-and-drop method to insert an image. However, in our tests, EmotiPad II's emoticons could be seen only in Outlook Express e-mails and online forums. They failed to show up in Web-based e-mail programs like Yahoo Mail.
EmotiPad II includes a search tool to help you locate other emoticons. A short 14-day trial is offered. Despite its drawbacks, those who use the popular Microsoft Outlook e-mail program or who frequent online forums will appreciate the ease of managing and adding emoticons with EmotiPad II.
The new sleeker version of EmotiPad has been re-written from the ground up to include special features as requested by its users. EmotiPad solves the problem of inserting Emoticons (Smilies) into Bulletin Boards around the internet and your emails making them extra special. Using a simple and elegant interface, you can store the location of all your favorite Emoticons from around the internet, preview them, then automaticaly drag and drop them to your browser or email client. When not in use, Emotipad can be set to hide off your screen and 'roll' back in whenever you need that 'extra special' smilie to put a point accross.
