emoji (OMG) I'm old - an iPhone tutorial.

This weekend I was texting with my cousin Shai (who is two-years younger than me) and she helped me unlocked the mystery of the emoji. I've seen the cute little characters everywhere but I had NO idea how to use them. I assumed that I would have to download something or fumble around with copy/pastes when I typed. (I'll admit I was lazy and I didn't do any research to "figure it out"). So if you're like me -- and missed the memo on how to install emoji's here is a quick tutorial to add these little guys to your iPhone: 



Sooo yah... it's super easy and I feel silly for not figuring it out sooner!

Do you have any iPhone tech tips?
What else should I know?

ps here's some more iPhone tips + tricks.

  4. Oh i love emoji's, not sure if my texts are complete without them haha!! Not sure if you know this but letters that need accents or marks above them if you hold down on the letter a little bar comes up with more options for the letter like the e (é,ệ, etc)!

  10. I love my iphone like a child but my one wish is that Apple gave us an instruction booklet. We basically have to figure everything out on our own!
