Emotisounds (text sounds)

Receiving messages today are just too simple and ordinary that we sometimes find ways to liven it up a bit, like setting a hilarious message alert tone or a catchy tune to at least make us look forward to receiving an SMS.

But, sometimes, setting a funny message alert tone just won’t cut it. That’s why Emotisounds (text sounds) is here to help you in that department. Emotisounds (text sounds) is an app that will play sounds when you receive a message. It plays sounds like applauses, boos, and a whole lot more.

To let the app work wonders, it has to detect words in asterisks in the message sent to you. For example, for an applause to be played, the app should detect the word “applause” written in between asterisks so when you receive the message, the sound will be played. This is very similar to how we put smileys on our text messages, only this time, we don’t see smileys — we hear sounds.

This app has a pro version where you can record your own versions of the emotisounds. In the free version, you can have any of the 50 sounds played. If your friend sends you a message with more than one emotisound, the app plays all those sounds in order.

Get Emotisounds (text sounds) today and tell your friends about it. You and your circle will definitely have so much fun exchanging messages with each other.
