The Japanese have brought us many wonderful inventions throughout history: Sushi, the Noodle Eater's Hair Guard, and emojis. Emojis are very popular in Japan. It is the use of small pictures to add expression and emotion to an electronic message. :) And finally, a company has managed to bring this form of self-expression to the iPhone. iEmoji allows you to go into the international keyboard settings, turn on the "Emoji" ability under the Japanese keyboard, then voila! You now have an extra button on your keyboard that gives you access to tons of emojis that can be used across all apps. One of the best parts is that when you send something (a text, email, tweet, etc) to someone with an iPhone, even if they don't have the app, they will still be able to see the emoji you put in the message. I really don't have any complaints about this app other than that it's biggest downfall is that the emojis can only be seen by other iPhone users. It will not show up on other types of phones and it will not show up on the internet (twiter). It's just fun and awesome and it works. Totally worth the $.99 price tag found in the app store.
