    Kardashian Apps News: Now Have Over a Million Subscribers

    ...........According to a source that told The Hollywood Reporter, the Kardashian apps now have over a million niche subscriptions, collectively, in just two weeks after the launch. The source also leaked that Kylie's app managed more than 600,000 sign-ups, in just two days after the launch. The Kardashian lifestyle apps are free to download; however, each app charges $3 per month to get exclusive contents. These contents include Kylie's curated radio channel, Kim's makeup tutorials, and Khloe's Khlo-C-D, which is an organizing series.


    The apps promised more exclusive content "with a credit card number," according to the report. Whalerock Industries president, Jeff Berman, promises to fans that they will always get more out of their subscription. "Our north star is that the fans have to feel like they're getting three or four times the value of what they're paying," Berman added.

    The challenge now for Whalerock Industries is how to get new subscribers, as well as maintain them. In just a couple of weeks, Kylie's app is no longer part of App Store's Top 100 most downloaded free app. However, Jared Heinke, Head of Digital at Whalerock, said that the apps' earlier performance has already exceeded their expectations. "We're going to earn every subscription — in the first week, the first month, the first year," he added.

    Lloyd Braun, the man behind the Kardashian mobile apps, said that he also plans to create more celebrity subscription-based apps by next year. According to Braun, the older Kardashian sister, Kourtey, and Howard Stern, will be one of those that will get their own app from his company.

    Howard will then see the real number of fans that he doesn't have.

    I wonder if there's any real auditing of those numbers?

    It wouldn't surprise me that these initial press release numbers are "Ashley Madison" self-serving in nature.

    And then thanking the thousands of fans as they shut down the app because of lack of interest. It would be a hit in the rest homes with the "tattoos are gross" and "get off my lawn" crowd.

    I dunno... In Wiggy's mind having the Kardashians as a benchmark might be appealing to him. They're huge celebrities whether we like it or not and they're making money hand over fist - this is the most appealing thing to the Wig.

    Unfortunately, since at least part of the Wig's fanbase is used to paying him for next-to-no-output, it's entirely possible that he could outperform them in this format.

    We don't know what their contracts and royalties are for this partnership. It could be a great way to bilk the meek. 21st century 900 numbers...

    No way he gets that even that many his youtube videos get terrible views for a man with "20 million listeners"

    40 M box office during his height of fame.

    Can't expect much better from a world where they sell pizza with "dipping sauce".

    I think this shows that Howard made a great move
    he must of gotten a stake in that company to join so early. This company also produces for TV, so his contract probably includes that they guaranteed to produce tv projects for him and Beth
    He must have hit a big payday. This company is not public yet.
    I think this is why there was so much secrecy about him and Robin attending the Buckwald party and why Jay Thomas, a Buckwald client, went out of his way to attend that party-he was filming for a TV show--Jay kept saying Don said he should go to that party because Howard would be there and it would be good for him jobwise.
    I bet they made an announcement at the party that Howard is leaving Sirius, and for stock reasons they could not risk that there would be speculation that information on a pending IPO for Whalerock or Howard's production company, considering Howard was already brought up before the SEC

    There was a guy who was able to exploit a weakness in there software and get sub numbers but he press released the analysis and Whalecock quickly fixed it.
    I think he said the initial numbers were lower than expected but the younger hot mess daughter is actually the most popular
