    Since yesterday, on my iphone 5s, I can't use my emoticones anymore. As I want to insert one in my text, my bug and go back to the homepage. An idea?

      The same for me. I can't put any emoticons in my posts/facebook and other apps anymore. It sends me back to the app screen systematically.
      I've tested everything... but nothing does it.

    I don't think it comes from a MàJ, the keyboard started crashing from one moment to the next for me.
    I haven't found a solution yet, even the phone update didn't help, and I don't see myself restoring it just for that.
    In any case if someone to a solution I am taker!

    Alas, alas, for a while (from a maj in particular? I don't know...), most emoticones on the emoji keyboard crash the app on which I am, any one, it can be very annoying on a texto because the text while typing is not yet saved and you have to start over again...
    in short, another Apple bug (and it’s getting common now...) and no solution!

    Exactly the same problem! Even after a restoration it still doesn't solve my problem! I think I'm going to the apple store tomorrow!
