Reality TV star Kim Kardashian’s new app Kimoji broke Apple’s App Store as its servers couldn’t handle the amount of traffic it was generating.
The 35-year-old star apologised to the multinational technology company for the technical issues that occurred due to her app, reported Aceshowbiz.
“Apple, I’m so sorry I broke your App Store!!” Kardashian tweeted. “I can’t believe so many people downloaded my KIMOJI app that it affected the entire app store! We worked so hard on this app & we know there are some issues due to the massive downloads that the whole tech team is so working on!”

“My Kimoji app will be up and running again soon! They are also working on fixing the search so u can easily find it!” she continued. “Ahhhh I still can’t believe we broke the entire App Store!!!! #KIMOJI.”

At one point, apparently, 9,000 people were downloading the app per second at the same time. While the App Store team was still fixing the issue, she gave her fans a peek of emojis available in the new app.
The mother of two showed her text conversation with her family members including Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian.
As shown by her in screengrabs of her text messages with her family, the emojis which include more than 250 food, beauty and pop culture-related images appeared to have made the conversation more fun.
