Use Emoji in file and folder names
Authored by: mistersquid on Nov 04, '12 08:20:04AM

While it's cool one can use Emoji characters in file names, having used Emoji on my iPhone I've run into compatibility issues transferring files even to my Mac (through the app vendors' servers).

Also, Terminal (UNIX command line) does not handle Emoji gracefully.

Finally, rather than add "character" to the file name, it seems to make better sense to me to customize the file or folder icon which has much wider range of display options in the Finder.
