    "I like this a lot! The emoticons and fonts are really fun and interesting. I can see people especially enjoying seeing the new types of font that they may not be familiar with, and "writing" in fancy ways. Of course the app isn't going to suit everyone, such as a person who was unhappy they didn't have a "Boy Scout salute" option, but for the general public, I see this being very fun."

WHAT'S THE MEANING?

An Emoji is a graphic symbol used in sending text messages, and even in web pages. It has a wide array of genres ranging from facial expressions, objects, places, and more. The term derived from the Japanese words "e" (picture), and "moji" (character).

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that there are emojis that have already won many different awards? Oxford Dictionaries hailed the "face with tears of joy" the Word of the Year in 2015. According to the iOS and Android keyboard app SwiftKey, the said emoji was also the most popular emoji in the world. Also in the same year, the "eggplant" emoji won the 2015 Most Notable Emoji by the American Dialect Society. However, those two are not included among the original set of 176 12x12 pixel emojis.

For a brief history, emoticons are the predecessors of the current symbols that we use to communicate. In 1999, Japanese artist Shigetaka Kurita made the first emoji. But what we are using in the present was the brainchild of Apple engineers Yasuo Kida and Peter Edberg. The two were the proponents of the set of 860 emojis that the Unicode officially adopted. In 2011, iOS users didn't need emoji apps for iPhone or iPad as Apple was the first to incorporate emojis to their devices' keyboards. Since Android just followed the lead two years after, its users initially needed an emoji app to keep up to the trend. Eventually, from just emoticons, we now have more emoji characters, and animojis.
