    iDiversicons. The First Diverse Emoji.

    Representing an entire world of faces, there are over 900 iDiversicons to choose from--so no matter where on earth you're from, chances are you'll see faces that look like you. They satisfy a void that the current emojis lack and what the public has been asking for: “more faces of color.” With just a push of the button, users can post our emojis into a Text, Email, Facebook or Twitter and send them all over the world. Released yesterday for the first time in the Google Play Store and Version 2.0 in the App Store. iDiversicons Version 1.0 was introduced in the App Store on October 11, 2013.

    Our timing seems ideal, since only a short time later on March 26, 2014, Apple announced to the world that “there needs to be more diversity in the emoji character set.” In May 2014, we met with the Unicode Technical Committee in an effort to update the standards with our diverse emoji. The Wall Street Journal wants to see a “hot dog” emoji and we heard their call and added a hot dog and many more!
