Kylie Jenner is surpassing her famous sisters, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, in terms of app downloads and revenue
October 19, 2015 By -- Comments
The youngest Kardashian sister is outpacing the rest of her famous clan when it comes to their new mobile apps.
According to mobile app data firm Apptopia, Kylie Jenner’s app was downloaded 1.75 million times during the first week of availability, In contrast, Khloe Kardashian’s app had 498,000 downloads while Kim Kardashian’s app saw 477,000 downloads.
In beating her sisters, Kylie, 18, shows that she packs some considerable star power, especially with younger people. She’s gained a massive interest on social sites like Snapchat and photo sharing app Instagram, where she has 36.5 million followers.
Whether that following can translate into millions of dollars for the reality TV show starlet is more or less certain. Kim and Khloe, also stars of Keeping up with the Kardashians, have established a career beyond television to include event appearances and fashion lines.
Kylie’s app brought in $134,000, according to Apptopia, compared with Khloe’s app, which brought in $25,000. Kim’s app brought in a little more than $19,000.
But just because Kylie is on track to bringing in hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue, it doesn’t mean it’s all hers. Apple reportedly takes a 30% cut from app downloads.
In addition to the apps, the Kardashian and Jenner sisters all have individual websites that also charge $3 monthly. The revenue data from Apptopia does not include those web subscriptions or any cut from the advertising ande-commerce on the apps.
This isn’t Kardashian West’s first brush with success with a mobile app. Kardashian’s hit mobile game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, raked in $74 million last year.
