If you're one of those addicted Yahoo Messenger users and wish to take the most out of this tool's chatting features, you definitely need to take a look at Yahoo! Emoticon Assistant.
Especially designed to provide access to the entire emoticon collection provided by Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo! Emoticon Assistant is a stand-alone application that relies on a very user-friendly approach to serve its purpose.
As you probably know by now since you're a Yahoo Messenger aficionado, this popular instant messaging client shows only some of the emoticons in the chatting windows, while others are hidden and can only be used by typing in the “secret” code.
Well, that's exactly Yahoo! Emoticon Assistant's goal: it shows all available emoticons in a separate window, together with a few other handy tools to enhance the whole experience.
The interface is clean and well-organized, displaying all Yahoo Messenger emoticons and requiring just a single click to send the one you want. There is a dedicated option in the main window to send the emoticon immediately once you click it so, unless you check this option, it's enough to pick the desired emoticon to get its code in the chat window.
The dimensions of the main window can be adjusted thanks to predefined settings, but Yahoo! Emoticon Assistant also offers a separate option to change the overall width according to your preferences.
What's more, Yahoo! Emoticon Assistant also gives you the power to add some emoticons to favorites and thus access the ones you like the most with just a few clicks.
All in all, Yahoo! Emoticon Assistant is an interesting piece of software that works with all Yahoo Messenger versions and requires just a few clicks to do its job. It's fast and reliable and it even includes a basic help manual to explain all its features.
