What is an Emoji App for Android?
An Emoji app is an app that offers fun cartoon characters to express yourself in different formats. You can create an avatar of yourself or use the default faces/stickers (smiley face) that come preloaded with the app. Every Emoji app also has something a little different, the key is finding the one that fits your personality!
The great thing about using any type of Emoji is you don’t have to formulate how you want to say something, you just click on an Emoji picture. You have heard that say “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
For me, it offers a fun and unique way to express myself and across multiple social media platforms without speaking, just send an Emoji and let others know how your feel!
Many of the Emoji apps come with the ability to customize keyboard themes, and funny GIFs to send via messages.

Bitmoji is my favorite emoji app, I have been using it for years. You can quickly and easily customize your avatar to look like you by using your camera.
If you get bored of what your avatar looks like change your appearance anytime you like.
There is a large variety of stickers with your customized emoji to send to friends, family, and co-workers.

This app is pretty cool, it has a ton of themes to customize your phone’s keyboard to your unique style. You will love Emoji Keyboard’s large selection of GIF’s and emjois that are offered.

The Facemoji Keyboard is similar to the Emoji Keyboard above. It offers thousands of features to include GIFs, themes, and of course Emojis. Customize your keyboard to your daily needs and usage.

This app offer’s an Avatoon character game as well, allowing you to meet and interact with new people from all over the world. Overall it is a fun experience however you decide to use the app and it’s free.
Anyone can use an Emoji you don’t have to be outgoing to create and start using one on your favorite social media platform. If you are shy and find it difficult to interact with others, the Emoji apps can help you connect with others without making you feel uncomfortable or exposed.
With hundreds of different Emoji apps available for download, many of which are free because they do come with ads. If you don’t like the ads you can pay a one-time fee so you no longer see them. I do recommend prior to paying for any of the additional features on any Emoji app that you use the chosen app for a couple of weeks to make sure it is the one that fits your unique needs. Everyone is different and what I like you may not and so forth.
Keep in mind that all apps run into software issues, if you really like the Emoji app, reach out to the creator prior to deleting it. It may be that they are not aware of the issue or are aware and in the process of fixing the problem.
If you have switched from the iPhone to an Android device and want to still use those Emojis please see, How To Get iPhone Emojis on Android Smartphone.
