But she dropped a big surprise when she revealed she’s releasing Kimojis – Kim Kardashian West + emojis. It neatly captures her meme worthy moments and transforms them into emojis. Like the time we saw her ugly cry, her much circulated belfie, or her sharply contoured cheeks even. Plus, there are butts. Lots of butts. Peaches even (with cream, if you’re into that sort of thing.) Happy sexting, folks!
Update: We downloaded the Kimojis, and let’s just say the experience was less than revolutionary. First of all, they’re not really emojis. The app sends these Kim belfies and ugly-cry faces as pixelated images on WhatsApp. The app also crashed multiple times on the day of the launch. But that’s possibly because over 9,000 people per second were attempting to download it.
Crashing Apple’s App Store is major, that’s what you call “breaking” the internet.

On the upside it works better on iMessage, and embeds images between your texts. Like so:
And we gather the kinks are being ironed out too.
