iPhone Fun: Emoji

Joa and Andy stopped by our house a couple weeks ago, and I had to ask her how she texts me cute little icons.

Now, Eric and I won’t text each other without including a special little treat! It’s so fun.

Get It!

  1. Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > International Keyboards > Add New Keyboard… > Emoji.
  2. When using the keyboard, you can now hit the globe button in the bottom row and choose from tons of emoticons.

NOTE: We have iPhone 4s models and iOS5; I am not sure if this works on all iPhones or operating systems or not…



I love my husband, my kids and the Internet.

  1. Wow! Thanks! How fun!

  2. That’s awesome! Off to write a gazillion text messages!

  3. If you think it’s fun now, it’s even more fun when your kid is old enough to recognize the images and has the hand-eye coordination to press the buttons. My 2-year-old loves to send my husband and sister text messages entirely comprised of animals and little icons that he picks out. It’s so cute!

  4. I have the iPhone 4 and it worked for me, but I did do the upgrade offered by Apple when the iphone 4s came out. I like the little faces, Lars always uses them on his droid, now I can reciprocate!

  5. I’ve been obsessed with this for a month or so now so I can relate to how fun text messaging has become! :) LOVE IT!
