Fans create Panthers emoji app

Two Charlotte communications firms have partnered up to create a free emoji app with a Carolina Panthers theme.

It’s called Purrmoji and it’s a joint effort between Solid and Priceless Misc.

The app features unique artwork representing players and moments from this season.

"We wanted to do something anyway with the Panthers, this seemed like the perfect blend of the idea and timing,” said Matthew Tyndall, Partner at Priceless Misc.

The app launched last week. It has been downloaded 15,000 times.

"We didn't really know what to expect. We knew we were excited about Purrmoji. We have been blown away by the response,” said Tracy Russ, Principal at Solid.

New Purrmojis will be available next week. Some of the new additions will be animated. The app is only available on iOS devices.
