Our first Corgi Things iOS 10 iMessage app was released last week! To those who have already downloaded the app, THANK YOU SO MUCH! The support has been incredible, and we’re so grateful to be a part of the corgi community. With the iOS 10 update, things were looking and feeling a little different, which meant we received a lot of questions over the past week (e.g. what the heck is an iMessage app, how do I install your Corgi Things stickers, is there an Android version, etc). We’ll address some of your frequently asked questions here.
Is there an Android version?
Yes, the Android version was released in November 2016.
Why do I have to pay $1.99?
Corgi Things is very much a passion project and is 100% funded by my own money. The earnings we take in from the app are then divided up to reward the small but nimble team that make these fun corgi things happen. The app currently contains over 40 stickers, which is double what other sticker apps currently offer, so I put in a lot of effort to make sure you get your money’s worth.
How do I install the app?
After you’ve updated your device to iOS 10, go to the App Store and search for ‘Corgimoji’. You will need to have a credit or debit card in order to purchase the app. You can also click this link which will automatically open the App Store for you: bit.ly/corgimoji
I installed it but I can’t find it anywhere on my home screen. Where did it go?
Apple introduced a new type of app called ‘iMessage apps’ with the iOS 10 update. iMessage apps do not appear on your home screen. They only appear within your iMessage app. Open your iMessage app, tap on the gray arrow to expand and see more icons. Tap on the App Store icon (the one that looks like an ‘A’). Tap on the ‘4 dots’ menu icon on the bottom left. All of your sticker apps will appear here, and this is essentially the ‘home screen’ for your iMessage apps.

I don’t live in the US, can I still download the app?
Yes you can! The app is available in all countries. Just search ‘Corgimoji’ or click on this link to open it up in the App Store: bit.ly/corgimoji
Can you make a tri-color or cardigan corgi version?
We recently released a Tricolor Corgi version of the app, and cardigan is a possibility. Check out bit.ly/tricolorcorgimoji to download the Tri-Colors!
