Sponsored – Refinery29’s Emoji Keyboard: AltMoji

September 1, 2016

Hiii,

Hope everyone is well! In the midst of wedding planning, finishing up my last semester and everything else in between, I’ve been so busy! But, I have been working on a lot of new stuff for the blog! I can’t wait to share it all with you soon.

So, I recently was asked to use and review this new emoji keyboard that Refinery29 just came out with. Initially, I was a little hesitant, I actually love my keyboard and always end up switching back. But as you know, this post is sponsored, so I figured I’d give it a go. The keyboard can be downloaded on both Androids and iPhones!

First impressions? It’s sort of like Bitmoji, but designed specifically for women or the LGBTQ community. For those that have not used Bitmoji, its the customized avatar looking stuff you see people using in their pictures on Snapchat. What makes Refinery29’s AltMoji different is it’s variety of emojis! I have a few favorites that I’ve been sending my friends, but this one is my absolute favorite!

The emojis in this keyboards are great because it’s stuff you never see on other keyboards. Plus, Refinery29 is planning to update them regularly! That’s huge, you’ll never run out of ways to express your emotions. The keyboard part itself is a bit lacking in its usability, but it’s easy enough to switch between AltMoji for pics and my Google Keyboard for typing that it actually doesn’t bother me. Emoji usability can also be a little cumbersome  in the sense that the process of copying the emojis into text is a problem on my Android (not so on iPhone), but these are early days and I’m sure they’ll be updating very soon. But to be honest, I’m okay with some of the flaws because of how obsessed I am with the diverse and unique options of emojis on this keyboard!

I can seriously throw in all these AltMojis in all my conversations all day (I send Nabeel the face mask one before we video chat, so he knows to expect I’ll look like a river monster)! The emoji part of the keyboard looks like this:

I mean just look how satisfying those emojis are and pretty much define my emotions these days. I highly recommend that you download the AltMoji keyboard and see what the hype is all about!
