You may have noticed that the website looks a bit different now, hopefully better. That’s because I’ve just done a major re-design. The old version of the site was starting to get too busy looking and because of the amount of traffic this site now gets everything was starting to load pretty slow. I’ve switched everything over to the Genesis framework for WordPress which should help considerably with the site load time and overall make everything a lot more smooth. Plus I think the simpler design makes everything look much better as well. Things may be a little weird for the next couple of days while I try to fix all the weird little glitches and what not from switching the site over so please be patient if you see anything weird. I’ve also got a bunch of plans for the site over the next weeks and months so stay tuned for more news and thanks for all your support! (* >ω<)
There was some kind of weird bug in the Android app that was causing all the icons in the menus to display the app icon instead of the correct icons with the Japanese Kanji characters. It made the app look pretty bad too. I’m pleased to say though that that bug has been fixed. Version 1.4 of the app is now available and if you’ve already downloaded the app you can install the update for free. I’m also pleased to announce that like the iOS version there’s now a free Android version! The free Android version doesn’t have all the emoticons that are available in the paid version and it does have ads but the favourites menu, create an emoticon screen and everything else works the same so you can test out the app first and see if you like it before downloading the paid version.
I’ve just made another giant update to the website and added over 600 new kaomoji emoticons bring the total up to 3,173! I’ve also added two new categories of kaomoji to the site as well, table flipping emoticons and emoticons with words. I had a bunch of table flipping emoticons included on the other actions page but I’ve collected enough of them now that they needed their own page. The other category includes kaomoji with words in them. Normally I don’t really include words with the emoticons themselves but these ones are awesome enough that I felt they needed to be included on the site as well. Here are some of my favourite new emoticons from this update: ฅ^•ﻌ•^ฅ This cute little dog that could also be a cat. ∠( ᐛ 」∠)＿ This guy lying on his side is awesome and also reminds me very much of the Condescending Wonka meme. ੯ੁૂ‧̀͡u This is a really cute side profile of a dog. ୧(﹒︠ᴗ﹒︡)୨ This little guy is so happy and excited in a cute way. ⸍⚙̥ꇴ⚙̥⸌ I just like how crazy this one looks. (*σᴗσ)(ㅎᴗㅎ ) ｜‸눈;) I love the guy spying on this couple from behind a wall. (ꐦ ´͈ ᗨ `͈ ) This is one of the most expressive kaomoji I’ve ever seen. ⁽⁽ƈ ͡ (ु ˲̥̥̥́ ˱̥̥̥̀) ु⁾⁾ This poor guy fell over and hurt himself. ꉂ (๑¯ਊ¯)σ Some kind of ridiculous looking laughing bird. ꉂ ꀞꀞꀞ(ᕑᗢूᓫ∗)˒˒ Another excellent and super expressive laughing emoticon. I like how there’s a ho ho ho included there too. ⸌̷̻( ᷇ॢ〰ॢ ᷆◍)⸌̷̻♡⃛ This is a pretty cute in love emoticon. (۶•౪•)۶❤٩(•౪•٩) These guys are pretty cute too. [+..••] An NES controller emoticon! ┌( ಠ_ಠ)┘This guy reminds me a lot of Captain Hindsight from South Park. ♪~♪ ヽ໒(⌒o⌒)७ﾉ ♪~♪ Another very expressive emoticon that’s singing. ♪٩(✿′ᗜ‵✿)۶♪ There’s something about using ᗜ for a mouth that makes these emoticons look much more expressive. (－‸ლ) The face palm. This may be my new favourite Japanese emoticon! ( ･ㅂ･)و ̑̑ Success! :: (•ᴥ• )́`́’́`́’⻍ A kaomoji porcupine! (´•͈ुω•͈ू`) This shy little emoticon is pretty cute. ٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و Yawning from either waking up or going to sleep. Once again using ᗜ for a mouth looks awesome. (•᷉ुε ू•᷈,) I’m not entirely sure what you’re talking about but colour me intrigued… Please enjoy all the new emoticons, they’re at the ends of their respective categories and feel free to continue to suggest new emoticons for me to add to the site as well!
It’s looking now like the Android app is fixed and everything is working! Thanks everyone for being patient while I tried to get this fixed and a huge thanks to everyone who’s left a positive review and to everyone who has edited their negative reviews to make them positive. If for any reason the app is still crashing please uninstall it completely and then reinstall it. This has fixed the issue for several people and make sure you’ve got version 1.2 installed. If the app still crashes after uninstalling and re-installing it please click the report button after the crash and I’ll get a notification in my Android Developers account with all the information I’ll need to get someone to fix it. That’s actually a pretty cool feature. Enjoy! ☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆
So a lot of people were reporting that the Android app was crashing right when you open it. I just spend the last couple of hours with a developer and we think we’ve identified some kind of database error that was causing the crash. Hopefully it’s now fixed. The new version 1.1 of the app has been submitted to Google Play and should be available in a couple of hours. If you’ve already downloaded the app you should get some sort of notification saying there’s a free update. I’m not 100% sure how it works in Android. Please update to version 1.1 and then leave a comment if it’s working now. If you left a negative review because it crashed and it’s now working please do me a huge favour and remove the negative review and put a 5-star one instead. Positive reviews are incredibly important to helping the app get found in the app store especially since there are so many copycat apps that have stolen content and graphics from this site. If you update to version 1.1 and you’re still having problems. Please do not post a negative review. Leave a comment here or email me at (removed) and let me know what the error is, what kind of phone you’re using and what version of Android you’re using. I’ll set up another meeting with this developer and we’ll try to get any other issues fixed then. Thank you very much if you downloaded the app and thank you even more if you left a positive review. Please let me know if the app’s working now or if we’re still having problems. One more thing, if you haven’t downloaded the app yet don’t download version 1. Just wait a couple of hours and download version 1.1.
