The way we communicate virtually has changed a lot in recent years. The plain texts we used to send some 5-6 years ago are not an option anymore. With the rise of emojis and stickers, we’re now able to not only tell a story through texts but also convey emotions, attitude and mood.
There is a number of sticker and emoji apps out there that you can use to spice up your texts, but I want to introduce to you the Sticker Market app, which is an all-in-one keyboard for stickers, trending GIFs and templates. The best thing about the app is that you can use it across all the top messengers and communication platforms, including Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, Viber, and even iMessage. No need to switch between apps or keyboards, Sticker Market works out of the box on any IOS or Android device, and on every messaging platform.
Another great thing about the app is that you can also publish your own sticker sets, and have them used on top messaging platforms around the world. Whether you’re a designer, illustrator, brand or just a creative user you can sell your sets and make additional revenue.
Let’s have a closer look at the app, its features, and customization options, and see how it actually works.
Installation and registration
You can install Sticker Market from Play Store for Android devices, and from Apple Store if you’re using an IOS device. After you install the app, you’ll need to register. That’s a pretty easy process, as you can register by using your Facebook or Google accounts. You can also register by using your email
After you register, the app will walk you through a 3-step tutorial on how to enable the keyboard and how to use it. Once you’re done with the tutorial, it will take you to the app homepage. The homepage is where the three app blocks are located: the Sticker Market, Sticker Cam and Sticker Keyboard. We’ll have a closer look at each of these blocks later, let’s now see what’s in the menu.
The app features a hamburger style menu, where you’ll find your own and downloaded stickers, templates, GIFs and Face Emojis, and would be able to easily navigate to the app blocks. There is a setting icon on the right bottom corner of the menu, which takes you to the app’s settings page, where you can edit your profile, and customise the account, keyboard and general settings.
Sticker Market is where all the stickers, templates and GIFs are stored. This is a searchable section, where you can browse millions of GIFs and stickers sets. The stickers are divided into several categories and are easy to browse by swiping the sets left and right. As you type a keyword in the search box there is an option to set filters to find the exact sticker you’re looking for. You can set the creator type, pricing, sticker type, and set to sort them by popularity, date or trending.
You can find funny GIFs either by categories or by trending hashtags. There are plenty of GIF categories, which you can choose to browse in thumbnail or list views. Some of the categories include: actions, cartoons & comics, celebrities, emotions, food, memes, and many more.
Sticker Cam is actually a very fun feature of Sticker Market. With the cam you can take pictures and apply various templates, stickers and face masks to them. Moreover, you can even create your own face emojis. Just take a picture, outline the borders of the part you want to crop and save it. The cropped emoji will be saved in the Face Emojis section in the menu.
Sticker Market comes with a stable and functional keyboard. You just have to give it full access from the keyboard settings of your device and switch to Sticker keyboard. There is a step by step tutorial in the app to help you easily set it up.
The keyboard supports 7 languages, including Russian, French, Spanish, Ukrainian, and a couple more. You can adjust keyboard settings and choose one of the two available keyboard themes.
Sticker Market is here to transform the way you communicate online. It’s a user-friendly app that allows you to have all your favourite stickers and emojis at your hand whenever you need them. It works out of the box and frees you from the hassle of switching between different apps and keyboards.
