Do you know what all the app icons and emoji icons mean? I’m glad I’m not the only one with a problem. Dave Farrington explains:
Open Messages on Mac, iPhone, or iPad. Start typing. Click or tap the emoji icon. The pop up window displays a scrollable list of icons; hundreds of icons. And not one of them has a name. Some are easily identifiable. Smile. Frown. But why so many of the same? Most of the animal emoji are identifiable without a name but why do they exist in the first place. Who sends an emoji of a koala bear or a duck.
Emojis need names.
