Joshua Flaum and Weily Apps Launch UrFace, an Application that Replaces Popular Emoticons with Images of Users Face.

Joshua Flaum and Weily Apps, a leader in the development of fun, mobile apps, has announced the launch of the emoticon application UrFace. Users will now have the ability to replace popular emoticons with images of their own face; creating a fun and customized messaging experience.

Until recently, expressing ones range of emotions via text and email was only available through the use of the same standard smiley face, limiting personalization. UrFace, however, allows people to replace those emoticons with images of their own face and store them for continued use. Thanks to the collaboration with developers at Weily Apps, UrFace can be used through email, MMS, and SMS. In future updates, it will also be compatible with Facebook status posts.

“Emoticons and smileys are used in emails and texts by people all over the world. They’ve become the standard for providing emotional context in an electronic message,” said UrFace Founder Josh Flaum. “Our goal was to enhance the messaging process by making it more entertaining. And what better way than to use your own face?”

UrFace is compatible with the Apple platform only and is now available to download via iTunes for 99 cents.

Joshua Flaum prefers to be called Josh. In fact, to this day, if anyone calls Josh 'Joshua', he gets kind of nervous and instantly wonders what it was that he did wrong. And if you think about it, that could be any number of things. People are very sensitive these days; they get upset over ringtones, or potato chip bags being too crinkly, and Josh really doesn't want to feel responsible for any of that stuff. He's got enough on his plate.

Currently, Josh "Joshua" Flaum is a writer on G4 Network's 'Attack of the Show', and the Co-Creator/Producer of the Geek & Sundry series 'Written by a Kid'. This is Josh's first app. Josh has a blue belt in Kenpo karate, and has a cat who, these days, causes all of the problems that Joshua used to get blamed for. http://www.weilyapps.com/urface.html
