'Status Symbols' iPhone App Replaces Talking with Icons

The iPhone has revolutionized the way many people communicate, and this new app will use a status symbol to tell the people around you what’s up. Status symbols have long been a way to communicate your current mood/activity/attitude to people online. With the impersonal aspects of instant messaging and social media, symbols just did a job that words could not. This iPhone app takes online status symbols from the screen to your life.

The Status Symbols iPhone app lets you choose from a range of emotions, responses and images to let people know how you feel when you can’t say anything. The question you might be asking is, why use your iPhone app to send status symbols when you have the power to, you know, talk?

Well, maybe you’re a text-aholic. Maybe you want excuses to show your non-iPhone friends how uncool they are. Maybe you’re one of those people who tweets about what they have for breakfast. If you get annoyed at ever having to actually speak, then the Status Symbol iPhone app is for you.
