Make Your Pictures Tell a Story with Smiley Camera

Photography is something that everyone enjoys–be it a serene landscape or a vibrant concert, a sad scenario or a happy couple. And rightly so, because a thousand words cannot do justice to the direct message that  a picture conveys.  However, one can argue that despite pictures being able to convey a message clearly, they lack the ability to provide an explanation or the context of pictures, an ability that is the privilege of text. To remedy this, pictures began being captioned, but what about pictures that you click? Getting a sketching app and scribbling on the image is quite cumbersome and requires a fair amount of effort.

However, XDA Forum Member donniemceduns has a solution for this quandary in the form of Smiley Camera. This handy app allows you to caption your picture with text as well as an icon or smiley, thus giving you the ability to make your pictures tell a story. Smiley Camera comes with an impressive collection of more than 500 icons and smileys, bundled together in a clean Material Design-like interface that is extremely user friendly. All of this amounts to an app that lets you turn your pictures into something that’s just a little bit more than usual.

Head over to the Smiley Camera application thread to get started with adding icons and captions to your pictures. Turn that selfie into a self-sustaining story quickly and easily!
