Wedgies Social Polls Releases Emoji Support
Creates Open Source Emoji Tool For Web Apps
LAS VEGAS, Nevada — April 1, 2015 -
In 2014, the most popular word or lexical item was the heart emoji.
That’s why Wedgies just released emoji support in polls. Now you can ask your co-workers whether they want 🍕 or 🍔 for lunch.
“Emoji is the fastest growing language in the empire, with an estimated 1.2 billion native speakers as of the last Galactic Census,” confirms Jimmy Jacobson, CTO.
Team Wedgies also created an open source Emoji Picker so amazing, you’ll have to find a good reason NOT to use it in your web apps. You can add emoji support to any text input on your app using this jQuery emoji picker here on GitHub.
Mobile is taking over the world and emojis are becoming a second language. It’s vital that people can communicate in ways that make them happy, including surveys and polls.
“You can’t be mobile-first and not support emojis on your platform,” says Porter Haney, CEO.
Sure, today is April Fools’ Day, but this Wedgies emoji feature is a real product launch that’s available to use right now. We just wanted to seize the opportunity to write a press release in emoji.
