Leveled Up Emoji

On my recent guest appearance on IRLTalk, I mentioned that I consider myself a professional Emoji user. This is mostly because I have set up quite a few text replacement shortcuts to accelerate my Emoji usage. I get asked to post my list periodically.

I’ve set these up on my Mac in System Preferences > Keyboard > Text, and on iOS in Settings > General > Keyboard > Shortcuts. Conveniently, until iOS 8, the entries on all my devices were synchronized. Upon upgrading to iOS 8, I’ve found the shortcuts are no longer syncing between my devices. Hopefully that will be fixed soon.

Regardless, below is my list of shortcuts. Note that this won’t work in Chrome (nor Windows) without some supplementary software.

I type this… …to get this.
