Description is a LIE

AFTER downloading this app, I open to find that you do NOT have access to all 460 emoji icons as described above. The description claims there is access to all 460, which is a big LIE. Luckily because this is a free app, its not really all that big of a deal, however, it was a huge waste of my time and just very frustrating. It should absolutely include the information that you have to purchase the full version to have access to all of the icons. So anybody who thinks they just scored 460 free emoji icons, think again and look at the full version or just know you only have some choices. And its also a good idea to check and see if you do already have these on your mac, apparently there are many of the newer ones that do, but if you do not, then just know that they conveniently left out some important limitation info for the lite version.

Easy to access but….

Yes, my Mac has them on their special characters place, but with Emoji installed, it's right there on top. BUT… and this is a biggie - if you've just copied something to paste it somewhere else, it's still in your system, and the first Emoji icon that you place in a note, Tweet, etc., will paste that old item, not the icon. GRRRR…. so you have to do it twice and pay close attention to what's actually in your message.

Needs improvement.

The emoji's offered are OK, but there are some emoji's that my friends on iOS devices use that I can't see on my Mac. And it needs more of a variety, it's fun to use the emoji's and what not BUT they do NOT work on web apps like twitter and facebook. HOWEVER they do work on twitter apps. In conclusion, the emoji's will only work via apple apps.
