Get the fun Kaomoji, Japanese text emoticons, directly as a keyboard on your iPhone and iPad!

(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚ ∑(O_O;) (゚Д゚≡゚Д゚)? ~(ø_ø。) (*^3^)/~

You can type kaomoji into any app with this keyboard for iOS8. Express any emotion with any of the happy, angry, sad and flirty bundled kaomoji, or make your own by combining mouth, eyes and arms to get your own unique expression!

The kaomoji Keyboard app comes with an app, where you can try out the keyboard, but if you install it as a system keyboard, you can make Kaomoji in any app, such as the SMS and Messenger app. It also allows you to mark your favorites, and saves your recently used, so that you have quick access to them.

With hundreds of different kaomoji, you can quickly send a fun message to your friends, and with the custom mode, you can combine parts to create literally millions of faces in any mood. If you enjoy the emoji keyboard, you will definitely want the Kaomoji Keyboard as a companion to it!

Good, has some flaws

Little Bonsai

I just love these silly symbols, much more than emoji even! I think the best compliment I can pay this keyboard is that I'm using it despite some of the irritating issues that have stuck around (yes, even after the update). I still find myself waiting for the keyboard to show up when I switch to it. That can be a little irritating when I pull down to use Spotlight, which also doesn't want to show the normal keyboard first no matter the order they are in. Great keyboard, minor issues linger.



This app has so much potential, but it fails miserably. Not only does it insist in behaving as the default keyboard for my phone now, forcing me to delete it from the list of active keyboards regularly to regain control of my device, but the characters tend to transpose after inserting a kaomoji making them no longer appear as intended and requiring editing by me. It appears to cause lag to other apps when in use and active. It makes it so that I have no keyboard available in apps which do not recognize this one (for example, Friendly for Facebook). It's such a massive pain that I am likely to delete it following this review update.

Great App, still has bad bugs


I love this keyboard! It offers a selection and ability to customize that is unlike any other.

It still has issues popping up as the default keyboard in apps, even after the update and even after arranging it in different places with the keyboard settings list. I find myself constantly removing it until needed, but it makes it nearly unusable. Hoping for a fix soon!
