I've created a chat prototype that lets you express the emotions by shake, here it is https://dribbble.com/shots/2991025-Shake-to-smile
Here is the link to the prototype http://share.framerjs.com/t1awp1edqeb9/
I hope somebody from Apple / Google is taking notes... charming palette too!
This is great...
you know what might be cool... is if after you select the emoticon it moves or appears in the scroll view itself... and asks the user to shake ... so that it makes the connection that the animated emoticons spraying all over the place are in the feed and that the friend that the user is texting with is seeing this happen. Right now it feels like its just happening on one end...
That's great! I had this idea in my Evernote but you made it first. My congrats! Small difference on my side - just to send simple smile or wink or smth as message. Cool!
I really dig this! You should look into a patent if there isn't one for it yet :D
