Kim Kardashian has another hit app. Well its not an app, it's just a bunch of Kimojis.

Everything Kim Kardashian touches in the app store goes gold. Kim Kardashian's new emoji collection, called Kimoji broke Apple App Store. Seriously.

According to TMZ, the Kimoji app peaked at 9,000 downloads per millisecond. The celebrity news site does not cite a source for this staggering number. Fact is the Apple Store suffered glitches as fans of Kim tried to download the Kimoji app. 

Kim and Whalerock sell the Kimoji app for $1.99. Apple takes 30% as fee, leaving about $1.50 to Kim her media company partner. It is not public what the revenue split between Kardashian and Wahlerock is.

The download frenzy for the Kimoji app pushed Kim's newest mobile app to the number 1 spot on the Top Paid apps in the iTunes app store. 

Kim Kardashian West apologized for breaking the App Store. She tweeted: "Apple, I'm so sorry I broke your App Store!!!" Don't be sorry Kim, Apple made a nice bundle of cash from your Kimoji app too. It is at least to expect that the company makes sure the app can be downloaded and the store works. 

New mom Kim also thanked fans for making Kimoji the top paid app on iTunes. She tweeted a couple hours ago: "WOW!!! Thank you so much everyone who downloaded my new KIMOJI app!"

Kim Kardashian's Kimoji app gives fans access to 250+ exclusive emoji and sticker designs. The App with an integrated QWERTY keyboard works  with popular messaging apps including iMessage, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, email, and more.

This is just the first Kimoji Pack. New packs will be added, more money to be made.
