the first and only app in the app store, ’emojify’ published by singaporean-based studio voidworks brings emoji to ascii art, giving smart phone users the option to transform photo pixels into emoticons – creating unique pictures of whatever the subject chooses. the resulting images, rendered entirely with emoji icons are customizable by simply varying the number of the icons or by changing the contrast of the algorithm. the process gives people the option to share the newly created pictures via social media networks facebook, twitter, weibo or email. emojify also exports up to 16 megapixels so the resulted images can be printed as posters and displayed on walls at home.
