Star of E!’s The Fabulist and wife of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, Kristin Cavallari launched her eponymous app in spring 2014 prior to the arrival of her second child. In fact, once the former Laguna Beach bad girl began expanding her brood (she’s currently expecting her third child and first daughter this fall), the young mommy exclusively revealed professional and personal news via her app. Because hey, if the only way to find out the sex of a celeb’s baby is to download their free app, that is just plain good marketing.

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood had an enormously and unexpected successful launch. Unlike Cavallari’s app, which focuses on news and style tips from the star, Kim's app is a video game, which idolizes the fame and glamour of Hollywood and social climbing. Launched last year, the game features shopping trips, business meetings, and good ol' Kardashian family drama. Through various levels and challenges, the goal of the game is to reach stardom status and ultimately become a universal celebrity. Kim Kardashian West played an instrumental role in creating the user-friendly game, which has been downloaded more than 28 million times.

“Surprisingly addictive” is one review of the game created by rapper Meek Mill and IM3 Gaming studios. With its most recent updates, audiences are able to enjoy an intensified version of “bike life” – similar to the old school racecar games available on game consoles. Described in the official description, “Players will compete against others gathering coins and performing sick tricks as they mock and evade police apprehension.”

Are you even surprised — how would there not be an app solely for the yearning desire to give Queen Bey even more love than she already has. The app acts as a almost a focus group of Beyhivers who are on a need-to-know-basis of Beyonce news. Also, her latest hit songs are featured on the site for listening and fans are able to connect with each other.
