iOS Pick: Bitmoji
Rene Ritchie's pick on MacBreak Weekly 501 is Bitmoji by Bitstrips. This lets you create a cartoon avatar of yourself that can be used in text conversations. Since it's a keyboard in iOS, you can use it in any messaging app. It takes the cartoon that you design of yourself, and applies it to the template of pre-generated cartoons with moods and expressions. There are all different themes as well, including holiday themes and popular movie themes such as Star Wars.
