After long last the official Japanese Emoticons iPhone and iPad app is finally here!
I need everyone who likes to use this site to help me out a little bit here. During the first week that this app is available I need as many downloads as possible and more importantly as many 5-star reviews as possible.
This helps the app get found easier on the app store so please, if you enjoy using the site download the app, leave a 5-star review and tell all your friends!
About the App
This app features the entire database of Japanese emoticons available on this website. Simply tap on the emoticon you want and it’s copied. Then just paste it into whatever other app you want to use it.
There’s a favourites menu so if you have certain emoticons that you really love to use you can save them so you’re not always digging through a giant list to find them.
You can also create your own emoticons and even generate random ones, save them to your favourites menu and use them like the other emoticons.
Here are some examples of awesome randomly generated emoticons that I made with the app:

The Story and History Behind This App
I’ve been sort of planning and working towards making an app for over a year now. I finally got everything designed and planned out and hired a programmer in May and the app was finished in June.
Then the Apple App Store Review Board refused to approve the app which was something I never expected.
They said the app didn’t have any entertainment value and wasn’t useful.
So I ended up fighting with the Review Board for about 3 weeks but they would not change their mind.
A friend of mine suggested I add a create an emoticon feature so I designed that section, hired a programmer again and added that section to the app. That ended up taking another couple of weeks to get done.
So the app was supposed to have launched back at the start of June but got pushed back to August because off the App Review Board.
This is why it looks like I’ve been teasing a surprise now for a really long time. I was planning on launching the app a lot closer to when I first made that “something awesome is coming soon” blog post.
But everything’s good now and you can download the app today.
And remember, we need as many downloads and 5-star reviews during this first week as possible to please tell your friends and also leave a 5-star review.
I hope you enjoy the app, I put a ton of work into it.
