Users have only been able to play around with the iPhone X’s surprisingly compelling Animojis feature for a few days, but already one developer has broken its out from its iMessages ghetto and made it its own app.
He’s even made it so it doubles the length of your cute animated creations!
Simon B. Støvring’s app is not currently available in the App Store — and knowing Apple, there’s a good chance it won’t ever be — but if you have a developer account you can download SBSAnimoji on GitHub.

SBSAnimoji lets users record and share Animoji clips up to 20 seconds in length. That’s double the length of Apple’s 10 second limit for clips, and Støvring says he plans to expand it even further in the future.
Although Støvring was able to create the app by combing through Apple’s private AvatarKit API, it’s not yet clear whether Apple will open up Animojis to third-party developers to integrate fully into their apps in the future.
Given their popularity, however, we’re guessing that a lot of people would really dig an easier way to record their Animoji experiments, and share them with the world.
If you own an iPhone X, but haven’t yet delved into the oddly fascinating world of Animojis, make sure you check out our guide on the phenomenon here.
