  1. It’s great to be able to use emoji, thanks for adding this.

    I found an emoji bug though: in the iPhone app when you add a multiline comment and then switch keyboards to emoji, add an emoji and then switch back to normal keyboard, the “post” button disappears behind the keyboard.

    1. Sorry for the trouble Sake, thanks for reporting this bug.

      I was unable to reproduce it on our in-office iPhone 5 (which is running iOS 10 at the moment). Which iPhone and OS are you using right now?

      Thanks, Zoe
