While it’s true that a picture might be worth a thousand words, how many words is a custom emoticon worth? Cute little smiley faces might do an alright job of allowing you to express your emotions via text, but sometimes they just don’t do the trick. Plus it’s fun to get creative!

Smiley: Show Your Emotions, developed by Mykyta Kapshuk, is a fantastic app for iPhone that allows you to create custom emoticons.

This app is a great way to add a bit of custom expression to any text conversation!

Concept and Functionality:

Smiley: Show Your Emotions is one of those apps you didn’t know you needed until you learned about its existence.

Though the iPhone comes with a handy emoji keyboard, it’s incredibly fun to create your own emoticons quickly and easily.

Smiley: Show Your Emotions works by allowing you add elements to a smiley (such as eyes, mouth, eyebrows, and even accessories). These items can be freely moved around on the smiley’s face, and there’s no limit to how many things you can place on the smiley.

Once your smiley is decorated to your satisfaction, you can save it to your iPhone’s camera roll. This also saves your smiley to the Smiley: Show Your Emotions album, allowing you to access your custom emoticons quickly and easily even if you happen to take all of your photos off of your iPhone.

To use your custom emoticon, simply add it to a SMS conversation as a photo. The Smiley: Show Your Emotions emoticon shows up larger than typical emoji icons, allowing your expression to be seen clearly.

Though I don’t use emoticons on a regular basis, sometimes it’s nice to be able to send a visual expression of your emotions instead of words. Smiley: Show Your Emotions works wonderfully and is very easy to use, meaning it only takes a minute or two to create a new emoticon to send to your friends.


Smiley: Show Your Emotions features over 150 different elements to be used on your custom smiley, meaning there’s literally an endless number of smileys you can create.

As you make custom smileys, you’ll earn coins that can be spent in the app’s store to purchase even more items for your smileys. If you’re not up for grinding for coins, though, you can purchase coin packs for various amounts via in-app purchase.

There’s also a handy tutorial that guides Smiley: Show Your Emotions users through the process of creating custom emoticons with the app.

I found the tutorial to be extremely helpful, and it made learning my way around the app incredibly easy.


Smiley: Show Your Emotions can be downloaded from the App Store for free and compatible with iPhone.

Anyone who has ever wanted to create custom emoticons should certainly check out this app, as it’s very easy and fun to use.
