Here's How To Get A Taco Emoji On Your New Apple Watch


Any new update is going to bring things that you love, things that you hate and make you think even more about what's still missing. With Apple's recent iOS 8.3 update, many users were wishing and hoping and praying that they'd be seeing a taco emoji included with the more than 300 new symbols in the updated keyboard. But alas, it was not meant to be.

However, you can now get one of those meaty, cheesy, crunchy creations in emoji form, if you're one of the lucky few to have snagged an Apple Watch today, that is.

There's a taco emoji, or "Wink," in the new justWink Apple Watch app from American Greetings, which just launched Friday. The justWink app, which is now available to download for free from the App Store, lets you send greeting cards, animated messages and, of course, "Winks," which are more like GIFs than emojis, right on your wrist.

If you're not into the taco emoji — which would be weird, but OK — the justWink Apple Watch app also includes animations of the very Internet-friendly panda riding a unicorn with a rainbow in the background, an ice cream cone shaped like a cat and a green otter. The app also includes justWink's take on that classic smiling pile of poo emoji with flies swarming around it. Can't you just smell the realism?

In case you're one of the many people who wasn't able to reserve an Apple Watch in time, just can't afford one or have no interest in ever putting one of those things on your wrist, you can also download the free justWink app for Apple and Android mobile devices. Unfortunately, you won't be able to send "Winks," but you can still send greeting cards if you're one of those people that still sends e-cards. And if you are, there's a new taco card in it for you.

The younger audience American Greetings is targeting with its justWink line of cards and apps probably won't be among the first people to get an Apple Watch since it starts at $349. However, American Greetings is also helping out there too by giving those who use the hashtag #ItsTacoTime or show up to its taco truck parked outside of Apple Stores at New York's Fifth Avenue and Soho locations on Friday and in the Meatpacking District Saturday a chance to win a $400 Apple gift card.

If only you had a smiling taco emoji to express how you feel right now.
