IKEA is one of the most recognisable brands in the world for home products. It’s surprising that they have created a keyboard app for iOS 8 with tons of cool emoticons to help users communicate with each other using any app on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
The emoticons app is free to download from the App Store and is used as a keyboard. You have to provide full permissions to the keyboard and enable it from the settings before you can use it.
The collection of emoticons is not huge but is categorised under a few different tabs. The first tab contains IKEA’s own products as emoticons which is why this would mostly be used. Other contains various different emoticons which are also good to explain your thoughts over text.
The emoticons work best on iMessage and appear as shown above. If you try to use them in Whatsapp or Facebook Messenger and the likes, they appear as thumbnails. This is not an issue with the keyboard but rather with how the apps handle images.
If you are a fan of emojis and smileys and emoticons, go ahead and give the free IKEA Emoticons a try.
