The latest version of our iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch app was approved late last night and is now available for download in the iTunes app store! This new version features a brand new design for iOS7 plus all the emoticons currently on this site are now in the app. In total we added about 1,500 new emoticons and 23 new categories to the app. We also fixed a few bugs so the app should run a lot smoother now. So if you haven’t downloaded the app yet head on over to the iTunes store and download it now! One word of warning to the people who are updating though, we had to completely redo the database of emoticons so when you update you will lose everything that’s currently saved in your favourites menu. Because of the fixes we made to the app though, this won’t happen again in future updates and we’re sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.
When people talk about Japanese emoticons they usually use words like kaomoji, emoji or just Japanese emoticons to describe them but what’s the difference and what do these words mean? “Japanese Emoticons” is a pretty broad term and doesn’t really mean anything. Both kaomoji and emoji are Japanese emoticons since they’re both different types of emoticons that came from Japan.
