Turn Yourself into an Emoji With This New App

We finally got the taco emoji (it’s about time), but even with our favorite food on the emoji menu, we’ve been feeling a bit hungry for more. We want to see a bit more of ourselves (and not just our taco obsession) in the world of emojis.

From the people who brought you Bitstrips (the personalized comic strip app), comes Bitmoji. An app for — you guessed it — personalized emojis. Your personal Bitmoji can take form in all different moods, expressions and comic scenes depending on what’s right for the conversation.

Once you’ve created your emoji lookalike, you’ll probably want to use it in every possible occasion, and you totally can because there’s one for everything. Trust us, we tested it. Just pick the bitmoji that’s right for the situation, featuring your face.

Bitmoji can fulfill your “words won’t cut it” messaging needs from texting to iMessage, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and more. There’s even a custom keyboard you can set up for iOS 8.

If you’re in any way on the fence about the entertainment value of having your own Bitmoji, just make one and see how often you want to use it. We’re guessing all the time. It’s not only the hilarity of seeing yourself in cartoon form that makes this app so fun; it also brings a personalized, fun face to an otherwise generic-looking conversation.

There were special Halloween options — we’re ready for the holidays now, Bitmoji.

The app is now available on iOS and Android, and it’s free, so we expect everyone to go and make themselves emoji famous.

What do you think of Bitmoji? Even though the comments box isn’t Bitmoji-friendly, we’d love to hear what you think in text form below.
