Checkout Tobi Akinpelu’s MavenSticker; an App that Brings Life to Boring WhatsApp Chats
Whatsapp Stickers is the most recent add-on feature for the hugely popular Whatsapp platform. And just in case you are wondering what Whatsapp Stickers? Whatsapp Stickers are small images like GIFs (but displayed like emojis) that help to convey emotions. It’s already pretty popular on the internet and is used even on Facebook.
Whatsapp introduced the feature recently and it has been live for roughly two months now.
But the default Whatsapp Stickers look dull, childish and SO Boring!
So a Nigerian developer, Oluwatobi Akinpelu, decided to tinker with it and came up with something truly awesome and worth my memory space! Meet MavenSticker, the dopest Whatsapp Sticker app on the marketplace!
Fun Fact: Akinpelu is a developer at agric startup, Farmcrowdy!
Because WhatsApp chats are getting boring, they released stickers, but the default ones are still not cool enough.

But there’s just one small issue: MavenSticker is only available for Android users! Okay, now is not the time to mock and constantly remind iPhone users that they are always the last ones to the party (do people still use Windows Phones?). Let’s just console them with a sticker!
