ShortMoji is an all-in-one customization suite designed for the iOS keyboard. It is developed by the talented developer Miro92.

ShortMoji initially started off as a tweak that combined shortcuts and emojis but has since grown to offer other features like theming and translation.             

Touted as the ultimate keyboard tweak iOS never had, ShortMoji lets you quickly access emojis and shortcuts right on the keyboard dock/predictive bar. It comes with tons of keyboard features and customizations that are accessible via Settings.
