Description

Celebrities, big brands, and independent artists are creating sticker packs for iPhone/iPad users to use in iMessage. You can too! Unlike every other kind of app, creating a sticker pack doesn't require writing any code.  Maybe you want to experiment with your own sticker pack that you can put on your iPhone and send stickers to your friends.  Or do you want to create a sticker empire to rival Kim Kardashian?  Either way, I will show you how to get started creating a sticker pack, enhancing it with animations and accessibility, and distributing your stickers globally in The App Store.  You can watch as I create the I Love Pizza Sticker Pack and submit it to The App Store where it's available now.
