Apps for March 20, 2012

Emoji Free!

Emoji Free! is a app that will add a new keyboard to your device. The attraction to this keyboard are the graphic emoticons that you can send to your friends and family. These icons can be used in any app that supports a keyboard, such as e-mail, text message, notepad, etc. With over 460 emoticons to pick from, you can choose from regular icons or you can choose animals, places, food and other random icons that fit the need. There is also an optional “physics-based sandbox” that allows you to play with the emoticons.

Even though it has got the word free in the program’s name, this is the full version and there isn’t a pay version so this is the full version without ads of any kind.
