[Q] [Idea/Suggestion/Question] Whatsapp Smiley in 4.4 Kitkat
Android versions 4 and below had no support for emojis. Jelly Bean came along with some improved support using font like smileys which were completely indecipherable on a small screen phone.
Now, with Kitkat, Google has incorporated some better support for smileys that are, for the first time, actually usable.
However, what I feel is that the Whatsapp smileys are really better looking as compared to the Kitkat ones. The Whatsapp smileys have, sort of, become the default form of smileys for the respective ones. And the google smileys, be it JB or KK ones, look more like a side-variant to the default-whatsapp ones.
So what I want ask is whether is it possible to replace the KK smileys with whatsapp looking like ones. I believe it must be possible because both KK and whatsapp smileys are image ones. So if the image files of KK smileys are replaced with correclty resized whatsapp smileys, wouldn't it be possible to achieve it?
Further, some skilled and interested dev may make a CWM flashable zip out of it, that may be used with many devices. Obviously, that would be possible, only if the images in most ROMs are stored in some standard place and in a standard resolution, etc.
I am no developer and may be completely wrong. Any person knowledgeable enough to shed some light on my query as to whether it is actually possible?
Here, now that I've asked it... Please reply and let my itch go
