The Latest And Branded New Doggomoji Has Been Released

An emoji can simply be defined as a small digital image or icon used to express an idea or emotion. This is a newly released emoji app that doesn’t suck. It’s an emoji set with dogs.

We are donating to the humane society to help real life dogs and other animals in need. We have pretty blown away when it hit top #1 paid spot last week for iMessage apps in the apple app store, as we independently (2 people who aren’t really that important) made it in Vancouver.

Emoji and emoticons are not the same things and the continued confusion of the two will not stand.

In essence, emoji are treated by the computer as letters from a non-western language, in much the same way as Japanese and Chinese characters are. But that also means that the software has to explicitly support them – otherwise, it is forced to display a placeholder icon, or even just a blank space (which you might see between the brackets in the paragraph above if your browser doesn’t support emoji).

It also means that each company has to provide its own interpretations of what the emoji descriptions should actually look like – and they don’t always agree. Take the implementations of the “dancer” emoji: for Twitter and Apple, it’s a female flamenco dancer.
