All about Bitmoji for iOS

This might not be the youngest of apps, but it is an unknown jewel of an app and well worth my while presenting its case to all my app readers.

What is Bitmoji?

Bitmoji is a great free app that lets you send a personalized avatar to anyone across a wide range of social media and chat applications.

This app is fully and comprehensively customizable, and this means you get to create an individually perfect solution every time you send an emoji (Bitmoji). What you can do is change the way you appear, you can play around with your hair and facial hair, eye color and size, eyebrows color and shape, also change the clothes you wear before you send the emoji out.

Guises what, that’s not all, you can also change your expressions, and there is a bucket load of them, to choose from.
