Saturday Night Live's official app gets new emoji and iPad optimization

The SNL app, which originally launched in February, is now fully optimized for iPads. The app has also added support for new emoji characters, as well as full AirPlay support.

Check out all of the improvements in the list below:

  • More emojis! You asked for more current and classic characters and icons - and we've got 'em, including Church Lady, Mr. Bill and Van Down by the River.
  • We noticed that several older clips were squeezed during playback and other clips were stretched. We've fixed all of them.
  • The app is now optimized for most iPads (iOS 8 and above; not recommended for iPad 2).
  • Full AirPlay support

You can download SNL from the App Store right now.
