Do you ever feel like there isn't enough emotion in texting? Or texting has lost its spark and seems boring? Emotisounds can help by playing sounds when certain keywords are in your text messages surrounded with asterisks.
The sender does not have to have Emotisounds, nor Android; you just have to tell them about the keywords. You can send them to emotisounds.thechasedog.com to view the promo page which includes the list of Emotisounds.
If you receive a text message with one of the keywords, it will play those sounds and give you a notification where you can replay the Emotisound(s) in case you missed hearing them, or you just want to listen to them again.
Emotisounds can also be used a utility application instead of just having more emotion with texting.
To get Emotisounds working properly, you must open the app once you install it. Quickly test it out by turning up your music/media volume getting your friend next to text you: Cool app. *fart* *lol*
Emotisounds was a featured "Indie App of the Week" at DroidNerds.com
