Halla Walla: emojis made for the Arab world


Bringing you first of its kind Arab emoji app, Halla Walla, to say what you want in a quirky Arabic way.

A new keyboard and emoji app has just been introduced that aims to capture the best of Arab and Khaleeji lifestyle. Called ‘Halla Walla’, the app includes various stickers and emojis that can help bring traditions in a modern world. Halla Walla roughly translated means ‘What’s up?’

“We wanted to create something that we know well and give the Khaleeji culture a boost through our creativity. When it came to representing the modern Middle Eastern voice, we felt there was a real gap in social messaging platforms. From our loud families, endless cousin gatherings and shared meals, to signature phrases, fashion statements, football, shisha and late night shawarma runs – our lives are brimming with inside jokes and over the top emotions that needed a platform to be expressed.” explains Yasmine Rasool, Co- founder, Halla Walla.

The app is available as an iOS keyboard app along with iMessage stickers and of course, Android users.
