In 2015, Christmas came a few days early for fans of Kim Kardashian West fans when the reality star-turned business mogul, launched KIMOJI on iOS.
KIMOJI was Kim’s official emoji app, which became the top-grossing entertainment app on Apple’s App Store within a day of its release.
WOW!!! Thank you so much everyone who downloaded my new KIMOJI app! pic.twitter.com/D0Rqf1d6CT

People just had to have an emoji of Kim K.’s backside apparently. We can laugh about it now, but KIMOJI was reportedly raking in around $1 million per minute at the height of its popularity.
Now, Kardashian West is taking advantage of being the first celeb to have their own emoji line and launched KIMOKI Hearts fragrances, which brought in $10 million in four days.
Sounds silly, but emojis are big business, which is why even the most mundane iPhone user gets slightly more interested in the latest releases.
Remember when the world found out the taco emoji was going to be included in the new iOS updates and people thought it was the best thing about the iOS 10.2?
Finally got a new updated phone, promised myself I'd do this as soon as I could:🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮#TacoEmoji
