This new Emoji++ keyboard is going to excite you, not that it adds a search engine for Emojis but because it is an improved layout compared to the default Emoji keyboard.
With Emoji++ keyboard, you don’t have to go through several pages of emojis, instead, you will be presented with a single scrolling list which is organized by categories. It appears just like your address book with letters, and if you want to scroll to a particular category, you can press the category on the right.
If you want to add a particular emoji to your favorite list for easy access in the future, you just long-press on it. And there is a list of recently used emojis in case you want to re-use them.
“I’m in love with it. You don’t even have to think about how to use it! Apple should be face palming,” a heavy emoji user said.
Many people have been browsing through their pages of emojis for a very long time, so David Smith, the developer of Emoji++ keyboard doesn’t try to reinvent the most common emoji use case but the favorite section.
Still, it will need a bit of time for you to get used to the new arrangement, but this will not be a big problem if you have been using emojis for quite some time. The app costs $0.99 and is available in App Store.
