Ikea Emoticons app designed to help the sexes communicate
Ikea's emoticons are designed for grownup conversations. One example seen on the accompanying video shows a woman sending an emoticon of a bed and a happy face prefaced with a quote balloon that says "Thanks for last night." There can be no misunderstanding that combination of images.
Of course, Ikea's app is basically an advertisement for the company. Ikea products are included in its emoticon library, including a plate of the retailer's famous Swedish meatballs served at its in-store cafeteria. And there are even emoticons of sexy panties included which allows users to take the subject of their texts to a whole new dimension.
Last year, Ikea made fun of Apple by copying the style of the tech titan's promotional videos to push the 2015 Ikea catalog. With a sense of humor like that, we're not surprised by Ikea's approach to emoticons.
Thanks for the tip!
