Karaoke with animojis have been the last Internet meme. Over here we have seen how the trend has been created, some of the best videos made and even a tutorial to make them. The truth is that we all caught by surprise, which at first seemed more foolish than iMessage, is triumphing and many believe that it should be used even more. For that reason, a developer has decided to create an animojis app that does not depend on iMessage.
Currently Apple uses an in-app in iMessage to display and record animojis. In this way, they focus on being used in iMessage, and in a certain sense to give more relevance to their own messaging app, making it acquire greater value for users. But unfortunately it is very limited, for example, only allows you to record ten seconds of animoji.
Simon B. Støvring decided to dig into the iOS code and discovered that Apple uses some private APIs to make animojis work. Making use of these APIs and with a few simple lines of code has created SBSAnimoji, an app that focuses exclusively on recording animojis, and allows recordings of up to 1 minute. Since it uses private APIs, it is probably never approved in the App Store, but you can download it from GitHub and install it through a developer account by XCode on your iPhone X.
My bet? Apple has decided to save animojis for iMessage and in this way force users to give more use to the messaging app. If there is another site where we could see the animojis would be in your app Clips, although perhaps in a future update. I find it hard to believe that open the APIs so that developers can integrate the animojis in their apps, but with other APIs of facial scanning that Apple has provided, you can do wonders.
