Everyone loves emojis, so much so that there has been a huge rise in the number of emojis that comes standard with our smartphones. But we still want more!

Today, a new app called imoji launched its product, which allows you to take your own images and create emojis or stickers. Imoji is used with iMessage, and can be used on any picture you’ve taken or image you find online. The emojis you create can either be marked as private, or shared publically. Publically shared emojis become part of the imoji gallery.

Imoji was created by Tom Smith, who previously worked at Apple. Smith says he was passionate about creating more emoji options as part of the rapidly expanding popularity of text messages. In addition to providing more options, the ability to personalize the emjois has been a big hit with users.

In case emojis are entirely new to you, these are helpful in conveying tone in text messages, where tone is notoriously lacking. In order to keep from being misinterpreted, users insert emojis to show emotion. Everything from smiley faces to piles of poop can be inserted into messages to amplify what is being conveyed.

Imoji launches today, and is available for free download from iTunes.
