NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Have you ever felt like the emojis on your phone just don't capture the spirit of New Orleans?

A simple smiley face doesn't convey the message, "Where Y'at." It would be more fun to express yourself with a "go cup" instead of a little, nondescript car to say, "I'm on my way."

A New Orleans creative agency and software engineering firm agree and have created an app that will allow the Crescent City express itself in that funky NOLA way.

CityKey - New Orleans by ContingaSoft focuses on the city's distinctive culture, food and music through stickers that anyone from the area will appreciate.

Making Groceries - It's there.

"Aww, Shucks" - An oyster helps convey the message.

See Ya Later - Yep. There's an image of an alligator.

There are more than 50 stickers in all.

"You talk like a local, not chat like one too," the developer's website proudly states.

The app was created by John Clark IV, Alyson Sage Kilday, of Hop & Jaunt, and Barrett Conrad, a web and software developer. It is available now in the iTunes store. The release coincides with NOLA Tech Week.

The app requires iOS 8.3 or later. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. If you have problems downloading the app, check out the FAQ page.
