This is exactly the sort of app I didn't know I needed. It's so damn fast. I'll never use the native emoji picker again.

Mumu it's damn fast โšกand it's becoming better every day. You can always send feedback to keywords that are missing and it will probably be implemented. Try that with Apple.

Apple's thing is slow and annoying and bugs out. Yours is fast and quick to respond + I really liked the shortcut option as I bind caps-lock to cmd+shift+opt and its easier to use this way

Mumu is super fun / fluid to use for everyday things. Also it's as fast as promised, so I'm enjoying that too.


Can I customize the keyboard shortcut?

Yes! We provide customizable keyboard shortcut to open the emoji window.

Can I use the native emoji picker shortcut to open Mumu?

Absolutely! Make sure to change your native emoji picker shortcut to something else before setting it for Mumu.

I can't open the emoji window. What should I do?

Make sure there's no app that used the same shortcut as Mumu. Otherwise, try to clean up Mumu using AppCleaner and install it again. That should work afterwards.

How does the license work?

Each license is limited to 1 mac for 1 year. You'll get frequent updates regarding new features and synonym improvements over that period. Bug fixes are free forever.

What happens to my app after 1 year?

Nothing. You could still use the app without getting any updates. Otherwise, you should renew the license. By doing so you support the ongoing development of Mumu to make a better experience for you.

How much does it cost to renew my license?

It costs you the same price as the first time you bought it.

Is it a subscription?

No. It's one-time payment. When your license isn't active anymore, you could still use the app without getting any updates.

Does Mumu work on any possible apps?

Yes, it does. The problem you'll notice is just the position of the window that wouldn't always appear near the active caret. It's a well-know issue that's caused by Apple's API limitation. Currently when something wrong happens, Mumu would appear at the center of the screen.

Which macOS versions that Mumu support?

Currently we're supporting from the latest stable version until macOS High Sierra (10.13).

Would there be some plans to add new features?

Absolutely! We're still at the beginning of this endeavor. We'll make sure to update the synonyms frequently and addressing customer's needs as soon as possible.

What if I have a feature request?

That's great to hear! Feel free to send us your feedback via the button on the menu bar. In a more conversational theme you could DM the founder of Mumu on Twitter @wilbertliu.

Who should I contact when there's a problem?

There's a send feedback button on the menu bar of the app. That's good to go. If that's not convenient to you, feel free to DM the founder of Mumu on Twitter @wilbertliu.
