Fancy using your mug as an emoji? Here’s an app that lets you do it. Unfortunately you can only send your self-made “stickers” via this standalone messaging app, but we reckon that’s not a big issue seeing that many people are using Line, Whatsapp and possibly other texting apps concurrently. Download on iOS or Android for free.

Kim Kardashian’s emoji release broke the app store when thousands scrambled to download it when it was launched late last year. You’ll get over 500 Kimojis and Kimogifs, including one of that glorious Kardashian butt, plenty of boob icons and a comprehensive range of gestures represented with her perfectly manicured, bejewelled hands. Download on iOS or Android for US$1.99.

Bitmoji

Snapchat has just acquired this app for $100 million — that gives you an idea just how big Bitmoji is going to be. It creates emojis in your likeness so you’ll have your very own cartoon avatar with a variety of hilarious expressions added to it. Download on iOS or Android for free.

Hipmoji

Not quite new but just as cool is this free app that ups your hipster quotient with pop culture icons. The Starbucks coffee, bubble tea, Tom’s shoe and Beats headphones are just some of the emojis that we know we’d be using a lot. Download on iOS. Not available for Android, because hipsters only use iPhones.

Keymoji

A little like your phone’s Autocorrect function, this handy app automatically suggests appropriate emojis as you type in your message text. Perfect for those who are too lazy to go scrolling through the keyboard for those seldom-used emojis and also super-convenient for putting together long emoji sequences. Download on iOS for US$1.99.

Emojis are one of those things that we can never have enough of, and developers are making sure that our keyboards are crammed with more and more of these fun emoticons. Are your texts still not making as big an impact as you wish them to be? Get these apps on your mobile, pronto.
