"His deep knowledge and expertise in technology, product development and finance will be a great asset to the company as we continue to explore new ways to innovate and monetize our platform."

"Ever since my experience with The Sims almost twenty years ago, I've seen the importance of expressive avatars. It is just plain fun to communicate with animated characters," Gordon said. "I am excited that the talented people at Mojiit have captured that fun, and have figured out how to deliver it with a speed and ease that we never imagined."

With drag and drop functionality, users create immersive, interactive conversations bursting with personality and expression unlike anything else available today.

Mojiit is available on iOS today with expansion to other platforms planned for the near future. Mojicons are supported by most devices and platforms including Android, Facebook, Instagram and more.
