Send it - Inspiring Creativity

Pranav Madanahalli

Do you want to improve your creativity and improvisation skills?

"Send it" is an iMessage game that allows you and a friend to craft impromptu ideas one word at a time. You can either start off with a random central idea or create your own. Before the timer ends, add a creative word to the idea and "Send it!"

"Send it" was coined in 2011 (Urban Dictionary). It means just do it, to say yes to something, don't think about it, have confidence and just Send It!

"Creativity takes courage." -- Henri Matisse

“Send it” is a great ice-breaker. Whether you are getting to know someone or texting your best friend “Send it” allows you to show your true personality and creative nature by sending one word at a time.

*Click customize when opening the iMessage app to customize the timer and the sentence starter.

Have a blast playing Footsies for iMessage! Select from a variety of animated emoji-style footsie videos to exchange via interactive messages. Just open the App Drawer to start a new footsie game, or tap on an existing Interactive Message during gameplay to continue a session of Footsies. In-App Purchase available to unlock all available content.

How to play:

The tension scale is used to display the "tension" between two players, and is reflected in the sub-caption throughout the game as well as in the vertical slider when selecting a message. The goal is to reach the maximum tension, but we recreated the suspense of real-life footsies with various features to make things interesting.

You can enable the button option to increase the tension goal with your next footsie to make the session last longer, or to wrap it up you can select the countdown timer for the session to expire if the goal isn't reached in time. Or to make them wait you may want to enable the freeze button to freeze the session where only you can thaw it when you're ready to allow the game to continue.

All the features can be selected in combinations as well, such as selecting the freeze button and the countdown timer at the same time so that the other player knows that as soon as you thaw the session, the clock is ticking for the two of you to meet the goal. Or if they set a timer on you and you want to have a little fun with the other player, you can just keep increasing the goal as they try and reach it and let the session time out. You can even freeze the session while the countdown is active and the countdown will resume where it left off after the session is thawed.

For the tension scale, each of the footsies are assigned a random number of points within a specified interval that contribute to the current number of tension points. The playful category contributes the least amount of points, risqué a bit more, and raunchy adds the most amount of points. Then there's the agitated, warning, and objection categories which decrease the current number of points with objection decreasing tension the most. Finally, the just-for-fun cozy category keeps the number of points the same.

The tension increase button option similarly raises the second number in the sub-caption, the tension goal, by a randomly assigned value between a specified set.

The settings page allows you to customize the layout of the Footsies interactive messages. Once a game starts, the original sender's settings can't be changed during that session. Open the app anew to start a new session. Also, use the Ditto button in the middle to immediately reciprocate with the same footsie type received. Enjoy!

Emoji Against Humanity - Card Game for iMessage
Emoji Against Humanity - Card Game for iMessage

Emoji Against Humanity - Card Game for iMessage


Emoji Against Humanity is a raunchy and uproarious iMessage card game inspired by the party game legends Apples to Apples & Cards Against Humanity. NOTE: This is an iMessage-ONLY game – it will not show up on your homescreen.

Each emoji has a unique meaning for each group of friends on this planet – what do they mean to your filthy minds?

Open your app drawer in iMessage by clicking the App Store button in an iMessage conversation, then the 4 dots in the lower left corner, now tap Emoji Against Humanity, and prepare for fun in a group iMessage of 3+ people!

• Choose a black card which poses a question, fill-in-the-blank situation, scenario, hypothetical, condition, or inquest
• Send that black card to 2+ friends in iMessage (This version of Emoji Against Humanity does not support you playing with yourself)
• Your friends choose an emoji-based response card
• You pass ultimate judgment on who provided the best answer
• The winner gains eternal, everlasting glory
• Rinse and repeat

• 335x cards to start in our "We Just Launched and We Have No Idea What We're Doing" Version 1.0!
• The ability to create custom cards with our First Expansion Bundle...which means unlimited potential cards & combos!
• An expansion pack that adds more cards & more emoji
• Get a brand new hand of cards if you so desire
• Exclamation points!!!

Play the game by opening up the most recent message and playing your move. Due to the way iMessage apps work, if two people send a move at the same time, the response of the first person will be lost and will have to be resent.

Open up your iMessage app drawer by going to iMessage, clicking the App Store button, then clicking the 4 dots in the lower left hand corner. Long-press the Emoji Against Humanity icon and then tap the X to delete the game and break our hearts into a billion little pieces.

Do you hate the game and need to let us know? Do you have the perfect idea for a card to be included in future expansions? Do you have other feedback? Do you like food? Then by all means, waste everyone's time and email us: [email protected]
Or if Twitter is your thing, find us: @EmojiVsHumanity
