When the name IKEA springs to mind, you’re usually thinking of cheap, self-assembled furniture, home furnishings, and yes, Swedish Meatballs. Now, IKEA would like to help you communicate more easily with the IKEA Emoticon Keyboard for your iPhone.
From the IKEA Emoticons App Store Page:
IMPROVING COMMUNICATION AT HOME
Men and women have always found difficulty in communication. In the home situation misunderstandings occur most around clutter. And that is why IKEA introduces Emoticons: a communication tool to ensure universal love and understanding in your home. All your hints, desires and questions will be understood right away. They will even bring a smile to the faces you love!
While it does look as if IKEA’s new keyboard will aid users in expressing their need for another allen wrench, sexy time, or even an extra plateful of Swedish meatballs, I couldn’t find the “CRAP! I’m missing 2 parts, and can’t get this damned bookcase assembled!” emoticon. Perhaps in version 2?
The IKEA Emoticons Keyboard app is available FREE for the iPhone in the App Store. [DIRECT LINK]
