Shapecatcher Tells You The Unicode For Things You Draw

Need to know the Unicode character code for a specific character? Shapecatcher lets you draw a picture of it and then finds all the Unicode characters that match and tells you their hex codes.

Obviously you can just do a simple Google search to find the Unicode character for anything on your keyboard, but for extended Latin characters, weird currency symbols and things shaped like scissors, this is a very handy (and free) app. It doesn’t currently support Japanese, Korean or Chinese characters, but the developer is working on it.
