It comes as no surprise that stickers and emojis have changed the way we text, chat and communicate online.They help us to convey tone, emotions, mood and sometimes even attitude, eliminating the key challenge of writing. Whether you’re angry, sad, hungry, happy, or nervous, there is an emoji for that.
With the rise of the useage of these small digital icons over the last few years, there has been a significant rise in the apps offering various emoji sets, stickers, image filters and masks.The thing is that most of them are not compatible with the popular messaging apps and platforms, and require too much time for switching back and forth the keyboards and emoji sets. The good news is that I have recently come across a great app called Sticker Market, which is an all-in-one keyboard with tons of sticker sets, millions of GIFs, and a number of funny face filters and masks.
The best thing about it is that it perfectly works on almost all top messengers and communication apps, including Facebook messenger, iMessage, Viber, WhatsApp and more.
