Emojis have become an important part of almost any digital conversation. They allow us better convey feelings and emotions, giving conversations far more context than words alone can manage. Take the winky face, eggplant, and peach emojis for example. What’s even cooler is that there is now a way you can quickly and easily create your own custom Emojis to use in any situation.

Emojis have come a long way since their humble beginnings on messaging programs like MSN Messenger. These days, almost every messaging app available has some sort of emoji collection. If you would like to check out one of the biggest emoticons libraries available in a single app, check out Line Messenger. Even if you have no intentions of using the app for messaging, it’s worth downloading just to view the huge collection of emojis.

Bitmoji - Android | iOS

First up we have Bitmoji, this is an app you have probably heard of, if you haven’t, you’ve almost certainly seen the trademark Bitmoji avatars somewhere. Bitmoji lets you create customizable avatars of yourself, which you can later edit to express your current mood, feelings or activity. On top of this, Bitmoji has a dedicated Snapchat feature that lets you combine your emojis with your friend’s emojis for additional fun. You'll need the Snapchat App installed as well to make the most of both services.

Emoji Maker - Android

If Avatars aren’t your thing and you would prefer to stick with normal emojis, Emoji Maker is a must have emoji creation tool. It boasts a huge design collection, along with the ability to create emojis using your photos. You can even use multiple designs together to create super unique emojis, all of which can be saved for later use. It also supports two Android keyboards, iKeyboard and Kika Keyboard, if you are using either of these third party keyboard apps, you’ll be able to send any saved emojis directly from your phone keyboard. The only slight annoyance of the app is that there are a couple of screens with rather large ads, which take a little bit of maneuvering to avoid, apart from that, the app is easy to use and very good at creating custom emojis. Especially photo emojis!
