Find here a guide for beginners of the newest applications to create your own emojis
The iPhone X and the Samsung Galaxy S9 have taken the emoticon to another level. Artificial intelligence and augmented reality integrated into the design and operation of the interfaces have turned the user's interest towards more realistic emojis, mirrors of their physical characteristics and the way they feel. The emojis of today imitate both movements and expressions , they are alive, they look and express themselves like you. However, these latest technology applications are only available to users who own these devices, so there is not a reason to stay out. Here are some applications that will bring you closer to the latest in the art of "texting" what you feel.
Memoji from Facetune
An innovative development of the Israeli company Lightricks, which after much analysis concluded that the process had to start from the edition of the photograph because, as they expressed it to the Venture Beat portal "People want more than just send emoji, they want to be". Thanks to the use of artificial intelligence the application allows the user to manipulate their selfies to reflect any emotion of the emoji tray, including the possibility of becoming a unicorn. The difference compared to other types of apps is that Memoji allows its users to use their own image, which is quickly adjusted to reflect what they are feeling. Memoji is available for iOS in the App Store and offers the possibility of converting your emoji into gifs, videos or images.
More than an application, it is a social network that as its page in Itunes announces, uses artificial intelligence to understand and reflect facial expressions. Developed by students of the University of Berkley, it offers features like augmented reality emojis to insert in photos and videos, filters designed by surgeons to beautify selfies by directly altering the faces and animated emojis stickers that maintain their characteristics even after posting on networks. In addition, once the user publishes something, they are given the possibility of knowing how their followers will react. It also has the popular "wipe to reveal" feature, which protects direct messages from third-party capture: the image sent is visible, but when you try to take a screenshot or a photo with another device, your author is notified. Polivybe is compatible with Iphone, Ipad and Ipod touch and requires iOS 11.0 or more for its operation.

Another tool that, similar to Memoji from Facetune, allows the user to transform himself into an emoji. The difference? Instead of directly intervening their expressions place stickers on it. The application offers interpretations for various emotions. Its interface is quite simple: it works from facial recognition in selfies that, once imported into the application, allow them to be modified. Unlike other applications, in this eyebrows, eyes and mouth must be manipulated manually. In addition, faces do not necessarily have to be human. The app has more than 100 different expressions, is compatible with WhatsApp and iMessage and is free. Available only for iOS.
Flexible and with lots of options. This free development of Bitstrips Inc. is available in 22 languages, including simplified and traditional Chinese. It is compatible with Snapchat and allows you to create a Bitmoji keyboard to share the emojis created in any chat. The Bitmoji Fashion option allows the user to dress their avatar and Friendmoji allows having three people emojis at the same time to share through chats. It also offers filters and customizable lenses with augmented reality that give the possibility to create frames for every place and occasion. The Bitmoji avatars on Snapchat have an option called "World Lenses" to animate them in 3D and project them into real backgrounds. Animations can be sent via chat or posted as stories.
Mirror Emoji Maker
This free app is very easy to use thanks to a built-in scanner that maps faces of uploaded pictures to create sets of emojis in more than 1000 different emotions. It also allows you to create a keyboard through which to use the emoticons in applications such as Messenger, imessage or networks such as Instagram, Snapchat, Whatsapp, and Facebook. One of its most applauded features is called Amigoji, which with only a photo of a friend allows you to get a whole collection of emojis from two people. Available on Google Play.
