Emoji Switcher Lets You Switch In and Out Emojis at Will
Emoji adds quite a lot to the text messages we send and receive all day. Without them, we’d all be left with only repeated letters and exclamation marks to help us figure out just exactly what the person on the other end is actually saying and feeling. Now, because numerous devices and operating systems have their own emoji, you may fancy the look on other devices. If this sounds like the predicament you’re in, you may want to check out Emoji Switcher.
Developed by XDA Senior Member Electrodeath0, Emoji Switcher allows you to easily and conveniently switch out your current set of emoji with another. All you have to do is open up the app, upon which it will detect which emoji set is default, and select which set you want to have instead. As of now, Emoji Switcher supports Google, Samsung, iOS and LG emoji sets. Furthermore, the app is open source, so if you feel like adding more, or want to tinker with the app a bit further, you can check out its GitHub.
Currently, Emoji Switcher is compatible with only devices running Android 4.4 and with root access. If you would like to check it out, visit the application thread for more information.
