Emoji are fun, colorful, and really easy to get on your iPhone (if you haven’t already read this article). That’s why they are being used in more and more app reviews on the App Store. That’s all nice and well but wait, emoji are not available outside the iPhone, right? Not any more!
While reading some new reviews we realized that without seeing those yellow smileys, red hearts, and hand gestures, some reviews lost some of their meaning (and some rare and amazingly hilarious ones lost theirs all together). So we set out to bring emoji over to appFigures. And so we did!
We’ve rolled out an updated earlier today that brings full support for all 470 available emoji symbols in reviews. The update also makes reading reviews faster, adds paging support, and displays ratings and average stars by app store. Quite a cool update overall.
