This feels like it was made specifically for China and maybe Japan.
not at all. IF i ever use emoji, they are enough. I am not going to ever use this "feature"
The amount of time they spent on this during the keynote was insane and really cheapened their pitch.
This is up there with the Apple Watch heart drawings that no one ever uses. Gimmick.
I don’t recall ever being less excited about a keynote tent pole feature on a Apple flagship...ever....
I think it's for "furries".
No and never going to use it.
no, I'm not a preteen
I don't know that I'd say "excited", but there are definitely times when I've thought the occasion could call for one so I think it'd be fun to try out.
Side note, it's funny to me how "fun" features are so heavily looked down upon by the "manly pro users" like there aren't a plethora of kids, teens, mothers and grandparents that would adore them (being very "target audience" here, obviously others will enjoy it too). A grandmother is going to LOVE receiving a talking monkey from her grandson. Just because it's not for you doesn't mean you should **** on it.
Yeah if I get an iPhone X, I'll have fun playing around with it and use it in a few texts with my family. It's not something I can see using outside of the privacy of my home. I don't particularly want to be seen making funny faces at my phone in public.
I could see texting the smaller children in the extended family a talking kitty to wish them happy holidays or a happy birthday. For me it would be a very niche use. (Can it be received by ordinary iPhones? If not, the use will be designated for an even smaller niche).
I'm glad they made it. I'm 51 and it's cool to see technology evolve to embrace and exercise the playful as well as the important uses of its potential. It's easily enough ignored if I don't want it. Apple has always had a playful side.
Nope as I’m not a teenage girl. Another in a long list of crappy gimmicky features from Apple.
I think it’s cool side effect feature added because it another use for all the sensors built in for FaceID (it’s there so may as well utilize the technology for multiple things.) Some people are acting like Animojis came first and FaceID was the bonus “perk”, but it’s the other way around.
I’d use it from time to time, my girlfriend will use it lots I’m sure.
An old boss I used to work for (Korean) got us all to sign up for KaoKao talk - I definitely think it is an Asian thing - Line is kinda the same way. Lots of emojis.
I never got into those and I hate them because it slows down my typing. I'm a keyboard only type of guy. lol.
I'm just starting to use @Gif more on Telegram. Guess I'm getting old.
Does it make me “uncool” if I only use iMessage and Slack?
Hahaha. I'm an only Telegram kinda guy. I just turned 32 today so I guess I'm joining the uncool crowd. I really hate using 100 different messengers at once. Something most kids today have no problem doing it seems.
Watching the wife use GroupMe, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, iMessage, Snapchat, and a few others I can't remember gives me a headache. lol
I won't say I would NEVER use it.
Maybe for the occasional joke or sending message to wife and kids here and there.
It sure as hell is not a tentpole feature of value to me personally. I barely use emoji now. RAAAARRREEEEEEEE.
The amount of time Apple spent on Animoji was a joke. Really? This is what the iPhone is about?
Far cry from...
I thought the Animojis were hilarious. Is it something I'll use frequently? Probably not. Do I think it should be a highlighted feature? As a more tech-savvy person, I say no. But Just like iOS 10's iMessage features, I get why it's hevaily touted.
Honestly I plan on using them whenever my girlfriend gets mad at me. There's no way she'll be able to keep a straight face when I'm trying to reason with her as a talking fox or pile of poop.
Your girlfriend and my wife are different in that regard then....
Yes I would assume they are.
i hate when people send me emoji filled texts. Happy, sad, mad, funny, anything else is like trying to decipher hieroglyphics to me.
They spent time on Animoji in the keynote because it’s a very clear visual demo that shows how impressive the technology used for FaceID works and what it’s capable of.
Are you serious now?
Are you excited about "animoji"?
You always highlight benefits to the customers in their life over features of a device.
Animoji is a dubious feature at best. There are so many other aspects of the device they could have gotten into.
