About Icon


Take your self-deprecating messages to the next level with this fun app that lets you customize twitchy, animated stickers with your own captions! Choose from over 30 ready-made stickers or create your own stickers using more than 30 animated templates. And now you can add Neurotic Stix widgets to your home screen. The neurotic possibilities are endless!

Your custom stickers work within Messages, but you can also use the app to share them as a GIF or a PNG.

It's free to create a few stickers so that you can try the app out. And then it's one small in-app purchase to unlock everything.

Dec 06
Version 2.2.1

Zapped a few bugs related to widgets refreshing on a regular schedule. Try adding one of the four different widgets on your Home Screen!... 
Also spent some time pondering the meaning of life, but that may not be reflected in the app just yet...

Nov 03
Version 2.2

* One more widget for y'all... A new community widget showing stickers contributed by the community (which is mostly just the developer and a few of his friends). Now you've got four different widgets to choose from. There's no excuse for you not to enjoy these widgets!
* Cleaned up some issues with iCloud sync.
* Obsessed over some very trivial wording in the app that no one else will ever notice.

Oct 10
Version 2.1

* Widget party!!! Now you can pick from three different Neurotic Stix widgets... Show a random sticker from your library, show today's date in a custom sticker, show your favorite sticker from your library... Each widget has some configurability too...
* Added an iCloud sync option to satisfy the 0 to 3 people interested in that feature!
* General app clean up

Version 1.4.0

Hair! Now you can add hair to several of the custom stick figures! For stix that support hair, adjust the hair style from the same screen where you add the text. You can select: bald, short hair, or long hair. Let it fly in the breeze and get caught in the trees / Give a home to the fleas in my hair / A home for fleas, a hive to bees, a nest for birds / There ain't no words for the beauty, the splendor, the wonder of my / Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair!

Version 1.3.0

Woof! This update is for the dogs... The "Kitty" achievement is now the "Pet" achievement and has a few dogs in there too...

Oct 12
Version 1.2.2

* Added ye olde scroll (a new custom stix template) for pro users!
* Added some letters I overlooked (å, ä, ö, ü, ñ) for German, Swedish, Spanish users.
Thanks for the feedback!

Oct 02
Version 1.2.1

Some boring bug fixes this time. Also, the delete icon (when editing your stix) is bigger and easier to tap. Woohoo! Bigger Xs! OK. I know. Not so riveting. Even though this update isn't so glamorous, I'm hoping to release some more custom stix soon! Thanks for all the great feedback so far!

Sep 28
Version 1.2

* The long-awaited CAPITAL LETTERS UPDATE!
* Plus, you can now edit your existing stix.
DETAILS: The first typewriter to include uppercase AND lowercase letters was invented in 1878. The first personal computers with upper/lowercase keyboards appeared in the late 1970s. And now, FINALLY, Neurotic Stix Pro supports CAPITAL LETTERS. Hand-drawn with love (and insecurity). Also, you can edit your existing stix by tapping the "Edit" button at the top right of the My Stix screen (from the app) and then tapping the stix that you want to edit. Thanks for the feedback!

Sep 26
Version 1.1

Thanks for all the great feedback so far… it practically raises my self-esteem to a normal level… but not quite. This is a minor update that provides more help info about using the various features of the app. (Tap the gear button in the app to access the help content.) Good luck with your neurotic stix!
