The iPhone is a cellular telephone, portable media player and pocket computer marketed and sold by Apple Inc. Apple has created an App Store that allows you to customise your iPhone by adding free and paid applications to your iPhone. Smileys sometimes called emojis are miniature picture icons that people use when sending e-mails, instant messages and text messages. The Smiley allows you to express emotion through the icon. Several applications are available from Apple's App Store that allow you to install Smileys on your iPhone.
