Kik users will be happy to hear about a major update for the iOS client which was posted to the App Store earlier today. The update brings the popular messaging app to version 6.5 and hops on the recent sticker's trend, adds third-party games, and more. The stickers in version 6.5 work just like you would expect them to and you can embed the emotion-like imagines into any of your conversations. As far as the third-party game offers go, launch titles include new releases by companies such as Zynga and TreSensa.
A full change log of the update can be found below:

They definitely seem to be popular in the space right now as apps such as Path saw financial gain since adding them. Kik includes a handful of starter stickers and sells packs for about $2.
