We all use GIPHY when looking to share or create a gif, and now mobile users can take the best stickers available with them to share them on-the-go.
GIPHY announced the launch of a new app called GIPHY Stickers on Monday, a title for discovering, sharing and creating animated stickers and emojis.
The new app was developed as a joint effort between GIPHY and its newly acquired company imoji, which means users now have access to the largest library of stickers right at their fingertips.
And now all these stickers are animated.
GIPHY Stickers provides a fun alternative to sending plain, old regular emojis. The app allows users to better express their reactions such as sending a friend the thumbs up, or wishing someone happy birthday with a gif.
The app is extremely easy to use. Upon launching the app, the user will see categories to Explore, such that include "Girl Power" animated stickers, "Winter" ones and "It's Lit" options. Users can also search for exactly what they are looking for in the search bar on the top of the screen.
Those looking for a Reaction can tap on the icon on the bottom menu to see animated stickers related to things like "Dancing," "Good morning," "Wink," "Hello," and more. Users can also use the search bar.
Previously imoji only offered static stickers. Now integrating into GIPHY's sticker library, all content on their new app are moving images. And there truly is so many different stickers for just about every thing a user an think of.
"Like GIFs, animated Stickers are an incredibly versatile way to bring a bit of your personality into a text or any digital chat. And our library has such a wealth of options to choose from, no matter the sentiment or style you're looking for...GIPHY has you covered," Cat Powell, Senior Stickers Editor at GIPHY (formerly Director of Art and Content at imoji) said in a press release.
Imoji also let users create their own stickers. GIPHY Stickers includes an upgrade of this in-app sticker making tool to now allow these customized creations to also move.
This feature works by using the built in camera to capture a photo that can then be animated with just a few taps. These stickers can be saved to the user's Collection for easy access whenever they want to share.
All stickers on this app can be sent in texts, an Email, on Facebook Messenger, or Facebook, with the ability to also save on the user's Camera Roll.
GIPHY Sticker is also available as an iMessage extension so that the stickers are right there in the user's keyboard when texting with the iPhone.
