Now that people have let the Kardashian and Jenner girls’ new apps marinate in the App Store and gotten over the initial shock of how much they cost (they’re $2.99 each), it’s time to see which one is right for you.
We’ve done the dirty work, and delved into the mobile applications from some of the most famous women today. Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner each have apps available on iTunes and Google Play. They’ve let us into their lives week after week on hit E! show Keeping Up with the Kardashians for ten seasons (and counting), massive Instagram pages, and Twitter accounts. It’s hard to believe that fans could possibly be left out of anything.
But these apps all share a few things in kommon, and that’s fashion, fashion, fashion, darling. They break down each of their looks and give a suitable alternative option fans can find elsewhere on the Internets (because a girl can’t steal your EXACT look, feel me?) They also give a rundown of their most-coveted and fierce Instagram pics. Every week, they share a #SisterSunday moment, where they feature exclusive videos with their sisters, and even just random vlogging wherever their front-facing camera takes them.
The apps do give a little more insight into the K Krew. It’s not so much that the ladies give a big reveal into who they are, but it’s more an accompaniment to what you already knew, with a little bit more than just a photo caption. However, not all of the apps will give you bang for your buck, so let’s see which are worth your hard-earned dough in order from least to most kool.
4. Kendall Jenner
Just like the model behind the app, Kendall’s presentation is the definition of low-key. And much as the supermodel-in-full-effect is being whisked off everywhere, the app feels a bit breezed over. It fits the main facets of Kendall’s life into her handy categories: modeling, style, and traveling.
What’s kute: If you ever wanted to know what it’s like to be a real model (and not just an Instagram honey), this app is perfect. Modeling is much more than taking a beautiful picture (Tyra Banks taught us this a long time ago). The jet-setting gets tiring, but Kendall shows that it’s all worth it if you look and feel your best. What’s she wearing in first class? You can find out here.
What’s not-so-kute: There’s nothing helpful for fans to take back with them, other than the beautiful snapshots she already gives us on a regular basis.
3. Kim Kardashian West
So for real, for real, what have we not seen of Kim? We’ve checked out practically all the nooks and crannies one could possibly see without being a licensed OB-GYN, so what could she possibly give us that feels new?
What’s kute: Kim is totally honest about how she feels on intimate topics, like her second pregnancy. She hates it, and she doesn’t beat around the bush at all. “I don’t enjoy one moment of it, and I don’t understand people who enjoy it,” she says. It’s particularly brave, because all you ever hear is how much fun it is to be pregnant.
What’s not-so-kute: She suggests women have a pair of granny panties. Really? This is what you want your fans to wear? Granny panties? Not the worst suggestion, but in her position, it’s most certainly not the best. C’mon, now.
2. Khloe Kardashian
We all know Khloe to be the outspoken Kardashian with the sweet side, and we see all of this and more with her app. What makes her different from her sisters is that she has recipes she actually uses (Khloe loves to kook), for dishes that actually sound good – like stuffed peppers with balsamic vinaigrette. In her exclusive videos, she also shows us what a typical day is like for her getting in shape.
What’s kute: There’s an endearing quality to Khlo Money’s app. Much like her sister Kim, she has a personal entry about how she’s feeling. In one, she details what it’s like to constantly have people give their opinions on her kurves. What it all boils down to is this: Khloe will do whatever she feels is fit in order to be fit: “I work out to look a certain way and feel a certain way, but I do it for myself.”
What’s not-so-kute: While the recipes are kool, keep the simple ones to yourself. A lemon detox water recipe seems like a real waste.
1. Kylie Jenner
Not for nothing, but Kylie’s app is way more fun than I thought it’d be. It’s full of personality and color, which seems to be lacking in her sisters’ apps. She also shares her music (yes, Tyga’s on the playlist) to give a full picture of who she is and what she’s about.
What’s kute: Her nail game! Kylie’s nails are poppin’. Not only does she have close-ups on those ‘crylics, but she talks to experts in the nail art industry to give her fans insight on what makes a good klaw. It’s extremely cohesive, and more so than any other topic out of all the apps. “Sometimes my nails reflect my mood, and that’s when a dark color is perfect,” Kylie writes. Hey, she’s no Mark Twain, but Kylie says what she means.
What’s not-so-kute: The over-use of the word “obsessed.” Is it really possible to be “obsessed” with everything? The answer is no.
Note: Kylie’s was the only app that had trouble opening beyond the first day it was downloaded, so it’s definitely got some bugs.
