Do you feel that you don't see enough of the Kardashian-Jenner clan? Do you go on Twitter like, "Man, where is all the kontent with a K?" Boy do I have some news for you. Yesterday, four Kardashian-Jenner sisters dropped personal apps into the iTunes Store and turned September 14th into KHRISTMAS. We all celebrated, and ate way too much salad, but when the dust settled we were left with a burning question: It's cool and all that Khloé, Kim, Kendall and Kylie have apps now, but what the fuck are they?
Tweets from the app-owners didn't really illuminate anything:
love you guys! hope you enjoy our new Websites and Apps...all for you! ❤️— Kendall Jenner (@KendallJenner) September 14, 2015
Hey guys would love some feedback..— Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) September 14, 2015
"We wanted to change our digital platform and make it more than just a blog that we had before," Kim said at an Apple event in Soho last night. "I just felt like there was no other platform that could do it all unless we do it ourselves." That's all well and good, but still, it's really hard to figure out what service these apps are aiming to provide, and in what way they are going to inevitably take over our lives.
Those who don't make apps, buy them. So I bought all four in an effort to explain them. The first thing you need to know is that they are free. KIND OF. You won't be charged for downloading the apps, but when you open them you get this little message:
Oh, word? So this is like Kardashian Netflix then? Got it. Also, NO—if you have a login for Kim's app, you do NOT automatically have access to Kendall's app. *Kendrick voice* This. shit. ain't. FREE. The fee seems to be the only universal truth of Kardashian-Jenner apps, so to go any further we're going to have to focus on one at a time. Also, please remind me to cancel these free trials before next week, thx.
