Sometimes words are not enough, and that’s why there are stickers. The Divine 9 Emojis app, released this week for iMessage, is a 300+ sticker pack capturing the quintessential expressions of Black Fraternity and Sorority life.
Stickers have been available on social messaging apps like WeChat, Twitter, and Facebook’s Messenger and came to iMessages on iOS 10, last Fall. One can send stickers as part of the conversation, like how they would send emoji or emoticons, or they could even stick the stickers onto a photo before sending it off.
“Stickers are the ‘shorthand’ for today’s generation of mobile users who want more emotion and personality than the text-speak that has evolved with chat-based messaging,” said Dr. Dionne Mahaffey, the developer and a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. “Our stickers are an expressive and engaging way to enhance the texting experience.”
Sticker packs will not create a traditional icon on the phone’s home screen and must be launched within iMessage.
To purchase the Divine 9 Emojis sticker pack, simply go to the traditional App Store or search for it directly within iMessage by doing the following:
* Launch iMessage
* Open the App drawer
* Tap the ‘+’ to open the iMessage App Store interface
* Tap the search button in the upper left corner
* Search for ‘Divine 9 Emojis’
* Select and download
Divine 9 Emojis has content for Alpha Phi Alpha, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Delta Sigma Theta, Phi Beta Sigma, Zeta Phi Beta, Sigma Gamma Rho and Iota Phi Theta.
Mahaffey, who is also the founder of The WhereU app, a directory for black owned businesses, has plans to launch The Greek Gram, a photo editing app with filters, frames and stickers that users can share on social networks. The Greek Gram is a traditional app and will be released this Spring. To download the Divine 9 Emojis pack, visit www.Divine9-Emojis.com
