Introducing: Plantmoji (Catmoji’s April Fool 2013)

One day, when the team was drafting UIs for Catmoji’s mobile app and we discussed: why not we create something innovative while staying close to the root? We also asked ourselves: who needs to express? Why is everyone around us siding “Himpunan Hijau” or the Green Walk? What is being ignored? In this city life, where is mother nature? How do people react to Sarawak’s logging activities?

After days of discussions and surveys, the greens are the one often being neglected yet silenced by their inability to express themselves. Human love plants. We want to do something, anything, to help plants and plant owners to express themselves easily.

Introducing Plantmoji

Plantmoji: a social network for plants. Green lovers can now easily share, discover and social with plant pictures and videos. We are on a mission to make the world a greener and happier place, powered by plants on the internet.

Do you know that plants can actually express themselves? For example when you forgot to water them, they will feel sad. When they are blossoming, they feel fabulous! But sometimes we cannot comprehend their expression unless they wear a set of googly eyes. Emoji is important. We released 5 emojis, according to our intensive research conducted in a few days: happy, sad, surprise, natural, and blossomin’.

Emoji helps plants to express themselves freely, no longer in need of googly eyes.

Plantmoji is still in beta stage. Plants, beans, fruits, flowers, roots, leaves, sticks, seeds (maybe fungi too, we are flexible) are all welcome to test it out. We need feedbacks. Here is a screenshot of Plantmoji’s closed beta, featuring Plantmoji’s front page:

Front page of Plantmoji. Currently in closed beta. We'll be sending out invites upon request.

While we work on refining the mechanism of plant expressing themselves, visit Plantmoji’s Facebook Page or follow Plantmoji on Twitter.

Yes, we can change the world with one emoji at a time.

p/s: This is Catmoji’s April Fool 2013 event but Plantmoji’s Facebook page will remain active for the lol. We might launch Plantmoji in the future… who knows?

We'll work harder on Catmoji. kthxbai.

Catmoji Is Now One Month Old

It has been a month since Catmoji’s beta launch and team Catmoji wants to say thank you, thank you, thank you thank you thank you to anyone who is happy and enjoyed cat pictures and videos shared onto our site. We will show you a little bit of insight on Catmoji’s journey and growth after one month being released onto the internet.

The Launch and the Growth

We launched Catmoji as a closed beta on Christmas Eve 2012. Catmoji went viral when it was a week old because it has been picked up by news portal and blogs from all over the world such as BetaBeat, Mashable, Lenta.ru, The Star, Fast Company, UOL and more! As a result, Catmoji’s user base has grown from 800 pre-registered users to 8000+ users who shared and reshared 25,000+ cat pictures and videos on Catmoji’s website.

New Features

Not only we went through Christmas 2012, New Year 2013 and a speedy growth in our catmunity in a month, we made some UI modification to the website so it is more user friendly on tablets, and also added a few important features on Catmoji. New features such as users can now edit or delete their post and collection, add description to your collections, and onsite notification.

You can finally choose not to rely on email by keeping an eye on our onsite notification cat bell.

Future Plans

We are going to develop an ios app for Catmoji. Aside from that, Catmoji will announce its merchandise shop that focus on Catmoji’s illustrated happy cats. Keep an eye on our valentine special and maybe a few sparkling new catvatars in February.

Have fun in Catmoji!

New Year, New Updates

Happy new year! It has been more than a week since Catmoji was launched and we hope you have a great time with us. Aside from releasing the New Year 2013 badge, we gave Catmoji a minor interface modification (as a simple fix on the user experience for tablet users) and added an important feature: Edit. Look for the green wrench on your post. You can now change the caption and collection, and also delete your own cat pictures and videos on Catmoji through this mighty edit feature!

We really enjoy making the world a happier place by providing you with cat pictures and videos. 2013 is definitely an interesting year ahead.

Catmoji wishes you a happy new year with more cats and happiness.

Happy new year!
