A complex reality demands a complex set of symbols. The Abused Emojis makes it possible for kids and young people to talk about situations where they felt bad or wrongly treated without having to put words on the situation. If you or somebody you know have been hurt, mistreated or feel sad, Abused Emojis makes it easier to talk about.
Bris is a Swedish non-profit organisation that runs a national helpline for children and teenagers. Every day we have contact with a great number of kids through phone, chat and mail conversation. Many of the problems that children face today are stigmatised and often they have no-one to talk to but us. The Abused Emojis app is part of our work to let children talk more freely about their situation.
Ratings and Reviews
"Full Access" is required for ALL keyboard apps...
I figured I had to leave a review to counter the other two here that are one stars. Those reviewers seem to be under the impression that the developers here are asking for "full access" for the hell of it. Turns out that's what ALL the keyboard apps require. It's how they are able to integrate into all the apps we use our keyboards for. If you aren't comfortable with allowing full access to a third party keyboard that's fine, use the default iPhone keyboard. Don't leave a misinformed 1 star review though.
The app itself is a great idea and I hope it can help give a voice to victims who would otherwise stay silent.
Could be great, but it isn’t.
I can’t really give it less than 3 stars (“It’s OK” is the definition for 3 stars) because it would do what it’s supposed to do. But as everyone else has said, it requires full access, which is only necessary for a keyboard if it wants to add predictive abilities, like Swiftkey or the built in Apple keyboard. There’s no reason an emoji keyboard should need to know what I’m typing ever. In addition, it’s not actually an “emoji” keyboard as much as it is a “sticker” keyboard. Like the stickers they recently added to Facebook, these pictures come out as huge. They’re not meant to be in line with text.
Full access isn't always a must
"If you do not allow Full Access a third party keyboard app can still — and should — offer basic keyboard functions but will remain sandboxed on your device and can’t, therefore, be keylogging what you are typing."
