Share your stickers using the sticker pack in Messages, or use the standalone app to share stickers as a GIF or PNG.
Maybe this stuff can help you…
You can either create your custom stix from the app, or from within Messages. Either method will add custom stix to your library.
From the Neurotic Stix Pro app, select the “Create Custom Stix” tab and pick your stix style:
Then add your caption:
From the Messages app, select the Neurotic Stix pro sticker pack and then tap “Create Your Own Stix”.
Select your stix style:
And then add your caption:
For lazy folks, I’ve created over 30 “ready-made” stix that you can use without requiring any creativity on your part whatsoever. Just tap on your favorite ready-made stix and they’ll get added to your library… Pretty cool, I guess…
From the app, tap on the “Add Ready-Made Stix” tab:
Or, from within Messages, tap the “Add Ready-Made Stix” button:
Hope you like my creations, which are filled with all of my low-self-esteem love.
The simplest way (maybe???) to use stix is with the sticker pack from the Messages app:
NOTE: The stix you create with the app and the stix you create with the sticker pack are part of the same library and you can use them from either place.
You can share the stix in many different ways (beyond just from within Messages). For instance, you can post your creations on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and in an email. Start by tapping the stix from the “My Stix” tab inside the Neurotic Stix Pro app:
You have a few choices for how you can share the stix.
You can use it in Messages, share it as an animated GIF, or share it as a higher-quality-but-not-animated PNG. (Keep in mind when sharing a GIF that some social media sites don’t animate GIFs when you upload them. They’ll still show the image—they just won’t animate.)
If you share the sticker as a PNG or a GIF, the “share sheet” appears.
This screen looks different depending on what apps you have installed, but in general, the first section (1) is the “quick-share panel” and has some quick ways to share the sticker based on your recent activity.
The second section (2) contains other apps you can send this sticker to.
This is where you’ll see your social media apps, email, and a bunch of other things. This is a great way to create a post in Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or to create a new email.
This row (2) is configurable so if you don’t see what you want, scroll all the way to the right and configure it manually.
NOTE: The stuff in the second row typically only allows you to create a new thing (like a new comment or post or email), and doesn’t let you reply to a thing. If you want to reply to an existing comment or email, continue reading (about
The bottom section (3) contains a bunch of other useful actions.
For instance, you can select
Copy to copy the stix to the clipboard or use
Save Image to get the stix into your photo library.
Copy in order to
Paste the sticker as a reply to an existing comment thread on Facebook or Instagram. Tap inside a text field (that accepts images) and a popup menu with
Save Image to save the image to your photo library. Now you can get to the stix just liked how you’d access any of your other photos.
If you want to edit any of your existing stix, go to the “My Stix” tab and tap the “Edit” button.
From here you can edit your stix library.
