Hi Thiago,

I am developing something similar to your app, in the sense that it extensively uses emojis. Thanks for bringing this up.

I was wondering what happens if you override the rendered emojis with a different emoji font, e.g. Noto Emoji. It seems like Apple is forbidding its own trademarked emojis but not the other versions?

Would like to discuss further. Cheers!

Yes that's right! You need to use your own emoji's, the trademarked images Apple created are IP and they don't let you use to replace iconography, only where it would be used by the user to input text, as far as I understood from their review guidelines. Using Noto would be fine I think.
