Tired of seeing the same yellow-faced smileys? In an age of selfies, how can emojis be far behind?
A new iPhone app is here to turn your mugshot into a personalised emoticon.
All you have to do is to download the new app, called Imoji, which lets you turn your selfies or other beloved images into stickers that you can send to your friends.
"Imoji makes your texts more you," the app's website declares. It is easy to use: Take a selfie or photo and edit it to make a sticker that you can include in your text messages.
The Imoji app does only one thing, and that is to make personalised emojis to brighten up your messages. The Imojis that users create can be shared with all the app's users.
"Where we think things are heading is a more flexible and creative form of communication, one which adds a new dimension to a text message," Tom Smith from Imoji told Forbes. "We've designed Imoji to be just that."
