If I had an Ngwee for everytime I walked into one of my friend’s houses and found them watching ‘Keeping Up with The Kardashians” on E!, I’d be wealthy by now. Not only do we now have to see her on TV or in magazines, Kim Kardashian has now come closer to her fans in form of an app. Going by the name ‘Kim Kardashian: Hollywood’, the free app shows you what it takes to be a big Hollywood star, or a star wherever you are. On Google Play store the app has the following description;
- CREATE YOUR OWN STAR and customize your look with hundreds of style options, including Kim Kardashian’s personal picks!
- STAR in a huge interactive adventure as you encounter other celebs, dedicated fans, persistent paparazzi… and even hang out with Kim herself!
- RULE THE RED CARPET as an A-list movie actor, cover model, fashion designer and more – what you do is up to you!
- TAKE OVER L.A. in a virtual world complete with exclusive clubs, upscale boutiques, and luxury homes! Travel to New York City and Miami!
- DATE AND DUMP CELEBS at the best parties and hottest clubs! Flirt and become the next huge celebrity power-couple!
- BRING YOUR FRIENDS ALONG FOR THE RIDE using Facebook – help each other rise to fame, compare styles, send gifts, and see who can be the biggest star!
With the app, you can choose a profile depending on your race and get to hang out with Hollywood celebs. Above is the celebrity profile I chose for myself, and to be honest, that’s the best I’ve looked in years. Lol. This just shows that celebrities can still be a huge part of their fans by staying with them on their phones too. It’s a highly interactive app that requires you to stay active doing tasks that earn you stars and fake money (unfortunately). You also to get to almost live out Kim’s life, ALMOST. So far it has been downloaded over 1 million times and has got over 167, 000 reviews. It’s 2014, and Zambian celebrities should take a leaf from this and innovate when it comes to their presence amongst their fans. You simply can’t stop thinking of ways to make yourself more popular globally (and make more money). According to The Verge, an analyst company has predicted that the app could make $200 million in in-app advertising! Should all celebs make an app? Ofcourse not. Just think of more ways to be more, well, popular. The app is currently only available on Android and iOS. Image Credits: Writer’s Screenshots.
