    Bitstrips, the personalized cartoon app that people love to hate but secretly kind of love, today launched a new app, Bitmoji, that turns your avatar into stickers and emoji.

    If you’re already a Bitstrips user, you can import your avatar by signing in with Facebook, while new users can create their own likeness. The iOS 8 app includes a custom keyboard so you can easily drop your stickers into messaging apps.

    Honestly, I’m kind of excited about this app. I’ll just have to remember to exercise restraint, as lots of my friends are sick of seeing Bitstrips in their Facebook feeds.
