American sign emojis. Signily is an Emoji-Style Sign Language Keyboard for iOS By Becca Caddy on 07 Aug 2015 at 3:00PM Signily is a sign language keyboard app.
So instead of switching to a keyboard to communicate with sassy ladies and dancing girls, you can use official sign language handshapes, whether you're fluent in sign language or just a beginner. There are some similar apps on the market, but Signily is the most diverse with a huge range of skin colours available for each and every handshape.
According to Signily, the app has been built for three different kinds of people, beginner, intermediate and advanced. The beginner is for those who don't know much about signing already and they can use the keyboard in a QWERTY setting in order to learn more. The intermediate people will be turning to Signily for a way to chat with friends who use sign language and to learn quicker.
And the advanced users may already be fluent in signing so would be using the app to put together handshapes, play on signs and use the keyboard in any way they like! All money made from the app goes towards ASLized's emoji project, which wants to integrate official sign language handshapes into Unicode and get them approved by the Unicode Consortium.
Signily is only available for iOS devices at the moment, but according to the app's website, it'll be available on Android mobiles and tablets soon.
