OK, we know this headline sounds kinda crazy. Emojis?! Gifs?!
Yes, there's now an app called Snapmoji for iOS that lets you take a photo or video of yourself - or anything, really - and superimpose an emoji onto it which pops up at the very end, thus creating a GIF. Just think: Every time you use the thumbs-up emoji, you can actually use a GIF of your own thumb. Every time you use the sassy hand girl, you can use a GIF of yourself being the sassy hand girl. You get our point. It's GENIUS!
It's really easy to use, and if you are still having trouble imagining it, we created a post-workout bicep emoji so you can see how it works. Sadly we couldn't embed the GIF in this post, but here's a static screenshot. We know, we know...try not to be TOO intimidated by our guns.
The app saves all your emojis so that you can whip them out at a moment's notice - because you never know when the right time for a personalized GIF emoji will strike. You can share them via text, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, email or whatever suits your fancy. You have to actually go into the app to do so...not QUITE as easy as regular emojis or GIF Keyboard, but it's so good, it doesn't really spoil the fun.
What are you waiting for? It's free, so start making those GIFs ASAP! :::Inserts Praise Hands Emoji GIF:::
