After Yo!, the one-word app that just let you state “Yo!” to your friends, another designer has come through with something equally simple. Emojli, as you may envision, is an IM app that only permits you to send out emojis. But provided exactly what we’re seeing on Twitter, Facebook et al every day, it would appear, for the a lot of part, that instant messaging has already ended up being an emoji-only experience.
Like Yo! app, it is among those that you can readily download, install, and have a lot of enjoyable with. For about five minutes. Thereafter, it’s a tiresome bore, and will definitely only prompt you to hop over to WhatsApp or iMessage where – – get this – you can take pleasure in emoji and text all at the very same time.
The function of these apps is to create a fad and get downloads, which is completely affordable in the present climate. With Facebook having stymied up almost $ 20 billion to acquire WhatsApp and Snapchat doing particularly well today, it’s easy to understand that everyone desires that chat app with a solid user base in order to get hold of a piece of the profitable pie.
With that said, the designer of Emojli is missing out on the fact that even if it does experience a spike in downloads, it will certainly have to act swiftly with some more recent, and certainly more exciting functions if it is to keep user interest. At its existing period, it’s most likely to fall off the map as Yo! appears to have, and in spite of having created a fair amount of early interest, the truth that one can not type basic messages indicates that after the wave, the thumbs-up and the image of the little red car, you’re probably going to be tapping on those sad, nonplussed faces quite often.
At present, Emojli is an iOS-only business, although I do not imagine that Android nor Windows Phone users will certainly be too disheartened by this. There’s no word on whether Emojli will attack the Play Store or Windows Phone Store at any time quickly, however I think this all relies on whether the app shows to be anything like a hit.
