Emojis have freed us from the burden of composing the perfect text for every situation. (Your brother got a new job? Clapping hands! Your best friend’s pregnant? Wide-eyed-surprise face + baby face + string of hearts.)
It gets better: Now, with an app called Bitmoji, you can create a cartoon avatar who looks just like you. Download the app and pick a face shape, skin tone, hair length, body type, outfit--even a mood or action. (Look: There’s you giving a thumbs-up! Blowing kisses! Eating a hamburger!)
Then enable Bitmoji within your phone's keyboard and you’ll never have to type out “I’m so happy for you!” or “I could really go for a cupcake right now” ever again.
