Pride Sticker Added to Seattle Stickies

Language and how we communicate has changed a lot the past couple of years and we are encountering new forms of communication that eliminate language and geographic barriers. Using stickers and emoji when texting and using other forms of messaging can eliminate entire paragraphs of written word and since they are visual and can also be interpreted by anyone with out the limitations of language or education. Applications like Seattle Stickies and Birds for Words are, I believe, first steps to creating comprehensive, universal form of communication.

Version 1.2.0 of Seattle Stickies was released today and it includes the new Pride sticker. This new sticker goes beyond the bounds of being a Seattle centric application and I think it deserves a few words. First and foremost I want Seattle Stickies to be successful. I did not put the work into it so it could fail and yes people no matter what you may believe, a lot of work is involved with developing and marketing an application. In addition to that, I want my applications to be inclusive and in this case adding the Pride sticker is the right move. Following the basic philosophy of what I think Stickers should be, not including a pride sticker would tend to be exclusive.

I also want to point out that Seattle Stickies is not a progressive application and I have no intention for it to become one. If you look carefully notice that a “9/11 Memorial” and “No Tax” stickers are still part of the pack.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

Seattle Head Tax Stickers

 

One of the hot issues in Western Washington is the new Seattle Head tax to fund homeless relief. Seattle Stickies the Apple iMessages Sticker application for iPhone and iPad has four new stickers that lets users show their opinion when texting or sending a message. Stick it and send it so those in power know how you feel.

If you are not aware of what a Stickers App is here is a great explanation from iMore.com

Apple has made it possible for you to make your messages a lot more interesting with the help of apps and stickers in iMessages. You can use stickers as stand-alone images, or slap them right on top of someone else’s chat bubble (or sticker, or picture). Apps integrate information so you can, say, book a table at a restaurant or share movie times with others. Your friends can also change dates and times in some instances so everyone can collaborate together.

Seattle Stickies Updated

seattle

Today version 1.0.4 of Seattle Stickies was released. This release adds three new stickers to the collection bringing the total to twenty-two stickers. Seattle Stickies is a collection of  Messages stickers celebrating the landmarks and culture of Seattle and the greater Puget Sound.

Seattle Stickie stickers are made in the distinctive canvas art style. With twenty-two stickers to choose Stickies owners have sporting stickers, Mt Rainer, Seattle Ferries, 9/11 Memorial, hand blown glass, local eateries, wildlife, and other landmarks.

For everyone who is not familiar with Messages Stickers here is the explanation directly from Wikipedia.

A sticker is a detailed illustration of a character that represents an emotion or action that is a mix of cartoons and Japanese smiley-like “emojis“. They have more variety than emoticons and have a basis from internet “reaction face” culture due to their ability to portray body language with a facial reaction. Stickers are elaborate, character-driven emoticons and give people a lightweight means to communicate through kooky animations.

Stickers are commonly downloadable for free, while online stores provide wider alternatives for a price. Sets may be devoted to specific themes, characters, as well as popular brands and media franchises such as Hello Kitty, Psy, and the Minions of Despicable Me.

Note: Seattle Stickies has a description in the app store stating it is free. While it was free for a period of time it is currently sold for 0.99usd. This error will be corrected at the next update.
