Emoticons review

Emoticons is a fun app that puts color and life in all your texts by letting you choose from one of the largest collection of emojis. With this app, you can make your messaging exciting, play fun games with your friends, and create cool pictures that you can share with your friends. This app is simple and compelling, and the games will have you texting for hours. 

Join over 4 million other Emoticons users who have figured out a fun way to communicate and brighten up their lives.


Emoticons provides users with one of the most extensive databases of emojis, not just on the App Store but anywhere on the Internet. You can send text messages with colorful emojis or even solve fun puzzles with the Emoticons games. The app also lets you edit and share pictures with the emojis. With this app, you’ll be able to create images with the emoticons and customize your photos by using different types of emojis. 

The puzzle games on Emoticons are fun and informative, and you will have quite the brainstorm trying to figure out what word suits the emoji. The app provides in-app purchases such as ad-removal for $0.99, premium pics for $4.99 and various coin packs from $0.99 to $19.99.


There’s nothing much to the app other than choosing emoticons when texting, creating pictures or sharing. The interface is fluid, and the design is very intuitive. Icons are neatly spaced and labeled, and you’ll be able to navigate the app quite easily. 

I haven’t experienced any glitches with the app, either when texting or creating pictures. The app is seamless, and anyone will catch on quite quickly.

It is not available on Android devices.


I like how the developers of this app were able to mesh texting functions with built-in games. This makes the app really fun to use and an excellent pastime, not just for kids. You might not dump your regular SMS function for this one, but you can keep Emoticons for all those dreary days when your texting needs a lift.
