Celebrity superstar Kim Kardashian West just launched her very own emoji app, aptly named 'Kimoji.' The move follows the reality star's 'Kim Kardashian: Hollywood' for both the iOS and Android platforms, and it seems that her latest venture into mobile software comes in the form of emojis and sticker designs.

Kim Kardashian's official Kimoji comes with a US$1.99 fee on the iTunes app store. The emoji app will provide users access to over 250 exclusive emoji and sticker designs as well as an integrated QWERTY keyboard, which will work with top messaging platforms on iOS devices such as iMessage, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, email and so forth.

According to reports, Kim Kardashian told Rolling Stone in July that the reality star didn't want her family members appearing in her latest venture because "they'll want a piece." However, Kylie Jenner's signature lips came through as an emoji, and it may apply as a marketing strategy to further promote the emoji app. There are also emojis for nail paintings, tidal waves, selfies, hearts, blowdryers, a pregnant Kim Kardashian, cars and so forth.

Supporters and followers of the celebrity have positive responses with the app in general. "This app is super fun and unique. Some may say it's not worth the $1.99, I think the "kimojis" are hilarious and unique," written by a user who goes by the name of sammiechan94. However, there were those displeased with the app due to technical issues: "It does not work properly. I feel very disappointed. Anything Kardashian is considered fabulous and top of the line. They are worth a lot of money and make a lot of money," one review read.

Soon after the release of the app, it seems as if Kim Kardashian has once again broken the internet. Many of the reality star's followers found that they were unable to download the emoji app, and took it to Twitter to voice out their complaints.

Fortunately, Kardashian was able to calm the uproar, telling her fans that the keyboard's popularity had just affected Apple's iTunes app store.
