Emojify – not to be confused with Emojify – is a funky little iPhone app that transforms pictures into ASCII-style emoji art.

Courtesy of Singapore-based app developers VoidWorks, Emojify lets you take existing photos from your camera roll, or snap a picture on the spot, and it magically turns the pixels into little emoticon-style Emojis, which are popular pictograms used in Japan.

These images can then be tailored to have less or more emojis fill up the image, and can be saved or shared across the social sphere. Interestingly, the app also lets you export at 16MP, just in case you’re looking to create some posters for your bedroom.

Emojify is available to download for $0.99 now.
