iA Emoji for iOS 10
iA Emoji is a simple and fun text-to-emoji-translator that allows you to send decodable picture-only messages to your friends. It translates the 2,000 most common English words into pictures, and allows the recipient of those messages to translate it back, emoji per emoji, or all at once. Every message becomes its own micro-puzzle you can tap and pop to solve.
