Kim Kardashian West ‘apologizes for breaking the App Store’ after issues with downloads of Kimoji app


Kim Kardashian West indulged in a spot of humblebrag tweeting after her Kimoji emoticon app shot to the top of the App Store.

While the claim to have crashed the App Store appears to have been something of an exaggeration, it does appear true that many were for a time unable to download the app, with The Drum reporting that downloads peaked at 9,000 per second. But Apple said the App Store didn’t go down:

The reality TV star raked in double-digit millions from her Kim Kardashian: Hollywood app last year.

Claims that human beings are continuing to evolve may be somewhat exaggerated.

Weep for humanity, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood app reportedly set to take in $200 million this year


According to a report from TMZ, Kim Kardashian’s latest game for iPhone and iPad is set to take in $200 million with Kardashian’s share coming in somewhere in the neighborhood of $85 million.

Sources familiar with the deal tell TMZ … Kim’s cut is 45% of net profits.  The game — “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” — is set to gross a reported $200 million this year alone.

We’re told the actual expenses associated with the business are relatively low.  A straight 45% cut of $200 million totals a whopping $90 million. To put this in context … according to Forbes, Kim made $28 million last year.

Keep in mind that the app itself is free. All of that revenue is from in-app purchases like a $59 “Huge Star Pack” and other in-game items users purchase while playing celebrity in the Glu developed game. Expenses for the games are reportedly somewhere around $10 million, but there’s no word on if these numbers take Apple’s 30 percent cut into account. The revenue estimate of $200 million is reportedly for this year alone after the title launched back in May.

The Kim Kardashian: Hollywood app is available for iPhone and iPad on the App Store.
