Stickers in iMessages are the hot new thing. Much better than use words, really. And there are all sorts of them. Fun ones, nerdy ones, annoying ones, and of course, Mario.
It’s day one of iOS 10 release so the App Store is filled with $0.99 sticker apps. But we’re here to tell you, not all of them rock. But we’ve found ones that do. Check out our tips picks for sticker apps below.
Pro tip: Before dropping a sticker in a conversation, pinch out with another finger to expand the sticker.
1. Super Mario Run Stickers
The only right way to start this list is with Mr Mario the plumber. Super Mario Run isn’t coming to iOS 10 till the end of the year, but the sticker pack is here to keep you company.

You know what’s cute? Monsters. At least, in the Monstermoji sticker pack. You get more than 25 stickers, with a range of emotions all from surprised to enraged. The app costs $0.99 but I have to say, the stickers look pretty fun.
4. Places: Stamps and Stickers
If you’re a stamp nerd, you’re going to like this app. The stickers, which are stylised as stamps, look gorgeous. The attention to detail on these things is amazing. You can now share stickers from cities like Rome, London, NYC and lot more. It’s a great way to communicate your travel plans or aspirations.

For me, this is the most surprising sticker pack. You see, The Noun Project is this awesome site where designers can find all kinds of icons, for free. Now, they’ve turned their vast resource of icons into an iMessage app.
So if you want to communication something using icons instead of words, Nounji will probably have your back.
