Broad City might just be the gift that keeps on giving. First, Comedy Central released every hilarious episode from season 1 on its new app, no television service-provider required. Now the show is spiking your iPhone keyboard with a ridiculously fun new app. And it’s free.

The app, available on the iTunes store, features Ilana and Abbi-centric emoji, stickers, and GIFs for all your texting needs. Not only are the keyboard features hilarious, they are also absurdly easy to access.

After downloading the free app, you simply go to general settings, then keyboards, and add the “Broad City keyboard” from the list of options. Be sure to turn on full access. Then, text away! If that sounds hard to follow, there’s an in-app tutorial.

A friend sent a text over to alert me about the app, and within minutes I was squealing with glee as my thumbs discovered the joy of this little gift from our favorite stoner besties.

The app also includes a favorites feature, for frequently used stickers; and a full keyboard, so no need to toggle back and forth between access to the extras and your ordinary iPhone keyboard.

Broad City, which has already been renewed for a third season, premieres Wednesday at 10:30pm ET on Comedy Central. Wondering how to fill the last half-hour while you wait? Download the app and play; your thumbs will thank you.
