Seinfeld emoji app could soon be available on iPhone Apple App Store
An emoji puffy shirt and urban sombrero are featured in the app
An app dedicated to Seinfeld-themed emoji could soon be available to iPhone users.
Emoji to enable Seinfeld-based conversations among fans will include mock-ups of Jerry, George and his parents, Elaine, as well as miniature marble rye bread, Junior Mints, an urban sombrero, and the puffy shirt.
Jason Richards, who runs the popular @Seinfeild2000 Twitter and Instagram accounts which re-imagine the programme if episodes were still being filmed, is behind the concept. To realise his idea, he asked designer Kevin McCauleuy to create five Seinfeld characters as emojis.

But as a huge fan of the show, McCauley included emojis of his favourite jokes and characters.
Additions included in-jokes between Seinfeld2000 followers, such as the Apple Store and Barry Obame – the Seinfeld2000 deliberate misspelling of US President Barack Obama's name.
Buzzfeed developer Shahruz Shaukat, began work on the app itself a few weeks ago, according to Mashable.
“It’s a real thing that people will actually be able to use,” Shaukat told the tech website. “It will let people use these on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Messages, Mail and so on.”
“It’s very limiting what Apple (or even Android) lets us do with emoji, mostly for technical reasons,” he said. “We came up with a unique approach stays within the rules and what’s technically capable, but still lets people use them however they want and share wherever they want.”
The collaborators have submitted their app to the Apple App Store, and are awaiting approval. If there is enough interest, an Android version could also be developed, the team have said.
